________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

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

Getting Started AGAIN



I decided today that I am going to get back on track and make some more art. Since this decision I have been so happy. All day I feel like I have been skipping around and smiling and just enjoying myself completely.  I came down into my space where I paint, the basement now, and started to map out a couple. I live in Montana now and so I wanted to work on something from here. We went to Yellowstone last year and saw some of the prettiest water falls and some of the stinkiest bison ever! So I decided I would make that my starting place...   

The room here is a mess.. I know. I have lived in this house for only a couple months but I really have not been able to make it my own due to lack of time spent in it. I will for sure keep you updated. I think these two are going to make me so mad, so tired, so overwhelmed and ever so happy!

Really needing to get back to painting!

I want to say that I feel awful for not coming in here and posting on my blog, but to be honest I really don't. What makes me feel awful is what I posted about the last time I was here! My grandparents' portraits. You know I am STILL not done! That is what makes me feel awful. It has been such a weight on my shoulders. I do have some updates for you! I guess that is a good thing. Working all the time now really takes a lot of my time. I am wanting to change that. I really want to get back to my art work and be a full time artist. I think it would be wonderful! I really think that this time I can pull it off..  


The flowers in my grandmothers hair need to be worked. They are "supposed" to be apple blossoms. She is from Michigan! :) I was trying to be thoughtful. Also there are many things on here that need working. I thought I could put an arch over their heads but I don't know how well that is working out as you can see I left it out because ... its not what I see in my mind. 


It seems so simple so why can't I just finish it?? Its been a year! Usually it only takes me a couple days or even two or so weeks! This is getting out of control.
