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

Thuggee! What is that?

I was watching Ancient Aliens today and I learned something new! I learned where the nick name "Thug" came from. I haven't blogged in a while so I wanted to come in and tell you what I learned. One of you might find it interesting as I did.   

It came from the word Thuggee. Back in the day (as early as the 1300s I read) there was a cult or group of men who would go around killing and robbing people. From what I understand they would do it like Robin Hood style and wait in bushes or trees and hold up people who were passing by. They wore these handkerchief type garments and would wrap them around their victim's neck and strangle them. They did not cut them or spill blood because they worshiped a Hindu goddess by the name of Kali. According to my sources (Ancient Aliens) they did not want their victims to bleed because then Kali could come and take their blood. They wanted to make sure none of it was wasted for her.  And that is why they call people who like to rob and take from others,  thugs.
