A Special Thank You!

It is my pleasure to introduce you to a very talented artist and to give him my most sincere thanks.

My husband, Terry, created this portrait titled 'Augusta' in colored pencils a good many years ago. He entered it into a competition judged by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and it was selected to be on permanent display in the Spokane WA City Hall.

He didn't have much time for his art during the years he was making a living for us, but since he retired a year and a half ago he's, thankfully, been able to devote more time to his art and we hope to be opening a website and blog for him before too much time passes. Here is one of his most recent works, it is done in acrylics and is titled 'Hollowed Home'.

I owe him thanks for so many things that I'd never get done if I said thank you till the end of time.

But right now, specifically, I want to thank him for this last month when he's sweetly and patiently gotten up in the middle of the night to help me put a surgical boot on and wheeled me to the bathroom or wherever I needed to go. For doing the laundry, taking care of the pets and the house and making meals with such delectables as tomato cheese gallette, mushroom ragu and the best buttermilk biscuits anyone has ever wrapped their lips around.

Most of all thanks for his support, encouragement and love not only now but for the almost 43 years we've been married. I can't wait for the world to get to know him and his art!


  1. Your darling hubby's art work is gorgeous. So much detail to look at and be inspired by.

  2. Thanks, Carol, I wish I could take photos that do them justice. Hopefully, we'll be having some prints made for many of his pieces in the next year.

  3. Wow his work is amazing!! You are both very talented :)
