A blog about my thoughts and my love of artwork as it develops. It reflects some of the basic steps that I go through to achieve the artwork which is eventually presented to Spicher and Co, an innovative design firm that manufactures artwork for the trade. The why, what, how, and where are a few of the questions that I attempt to answer as I blog away! This is a tiny window into the life of a painter, and my hope is that my love for life shines through in the objects that I work to create.

Early Kolene Spicher Fraktur
My humble beginning
Is it humility to say that commercially, this was an example of some of my first few paintings? Well, I don't know, but this was in fact some of my earliest work that I sold as an artist.
I had a customer contact me about them because one of her little pictures had accidentally been knocked off the wall, and the glass was now broken. Could I fix it, she asked?
I was more than happy to, but not before I snapped a few pictures to show people how I got started. This was 26 years ago! I have loved every moment of it, too.
This actually is my favorite of the three. I have always liked George Washington!
In 2008, my mother passed away. When she died, my father gave this back to me! This is another example of some of my Fraktur work. This was painted later, by at least 10 years.
Thanks for taking the time to look! Now back to work.
