I am a mother, a grandmother and a contemporary realist painter currently living in Montana. I was encouraged to be an artist when I was younger due to some sad events in my life. Through this experience I started to learn and understand how much of an impact being an artist and the art world in general could have on a person if given a chance. Later, I wanted to be a seascape painter and went to school where I received my Associates in Fine Art/Humanities (2007) and have been able to continue my artistic education through books, the internet and personal experiences. Today I do not just paint the ocean but I paint anything that inspires me. Through my artwork, I want to encourage happy thoughts, happy memories and positive perspectives in order to stimulate a happy heart within my viewer whether it be from a nature scene to something as simple as a favorite coffee cup. - Frankie Stockman 2021

Painting Walt Whitman - Poet

For the last couple of days I have been complaining to my family and a little on my Facebook Fanpage to my friends that I should be painting and I wasn't. Little did I know but that was my brain working me up for a huge painting. Yesterday I picked up a new canvas and got to work. I am painting Walt Whitman. Poet. I was thinking that if it goes right, I may paint Mark Twain! Ew Ew!! And and.. Ralph Waldo Emerson. My hunny bunny says I should paint them and then "GIVE" yes, I know, I was in shock too - GIVE them to our local library. I started to think about it and I don't know - it might actually be a good idea. No one would buy them, and I don't know if I would display them. I definitely have to think about it. So the picture here is not really all that well put together yet.. I have worked a bit more since this photo so it is coming together much better. I want it to look classic but I don't know if it will. I will need more practice. The backgrounds really frustrate me because I always want to go very dark but I see other paintings that don't and I admire them. So I am going to have to really think about this one. I want to take my time and make it look very nice!
