When you go to the mailbox and you see all the bills or junk mail and there appears a hand addressed envelope, what is
the first thing you open? You open the hand address envelope.
You pull the card out of the envelope and as you open it, there is a handwritten note. Once you have read the note,
you close the card look at the image on the front and you reopen the card and reread the note.
I cannot count the numerous people who have thanked me for brightening their day with a handwritten note.
I began painting in 2004 when my brother-in-law, Lee Beavers, who has since passed from cancer, encouraged me to pursue my painting.
Many people have enjoyed my paintings over the years. So, I thought I would put this gift to good use. I create a painting then
put it on note cards and calendars. In these days of email and instant messaging, I still believe people enjoy getting a hand
written note in the mail or enjoy a calendar with beautiful hand painted prints. I have kept the tradition of sending a hand
written note of love, to thank, or a moment of encouragement to the recipient.
I am passionate about making a difference in the lives of others. I hope you enjoy using my notecards and other art, knowing
that your purchase donates net proceeds to Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center Child Abuse & Neglect Program, Nash
Community College, or Men's Christian Fellowship Home of your choice. This gives me great pleasure, as well as allowing me to
strengthen old friendships and establish new relationships. What can you do to brighten someone’s day? It may be as simple
as a handwritten note.
Take a walk through my life with paintings and if you like what you see, know that the net proceeds will go to helping others in need.
In 2015, I was honored with a commission in the Kentucky Colonels by
the Governor of Kentucky Steven Beshear. See more...
