'LIFE IS SWEET!'
Humble Honey Bee Mural
Painted during the COVID-19 quarantine to entertain my parents and grandmother, who never thought watching paint dry could be so much fun until now!
Humble Honey Bee
What's all the buzz? Win an original TRand painting for your home! It's the perfect size - for a living room, kitchen or porch! It comes framed and ready to buzz on over.
The world seems to be going to hell in a hand basket this year, no matter where you are on this little rock we call home. I started the Life Is Sweet project while in quarantine as a way to connect with people who are important to me, even if at a distance. Friends on social media enjoyed seeing the progress online, while my lovely 100 - years - young grandmother watched intently out the window as the mural slowly came together. Who knew watching paint dry could be so much fun.
The moral of the story, just be like the Humble Honey Bee! If we all work together, we'll all get through it together. Life is sweet.
One of the best things about being an artist is seeing my life's work in homes across the nation. It's a thrill to put a piece in the mail and wish it luck on its journey, and I want to thank each and every one of you who has ever purchased a piece from me. I'd also like to give you the chance to win a fabulous painting to start or add to your TRand collection because art this good belongs on your walls!

The Grand Prize winner will receive the original Humble Honey Bee painting (Oil on Panel, 37" x 49").

Art that creates places and shapes spaces.
"I love art that makes me stand back and say 'Wow, how on earth did they do that!' Portraits have always drawn me in because if you take away the frivolity of the world, what are you left with? You're left with a lonesome person sitting, staring at a lens at an unspecified point in time. Famous, infamous, or appallingly normal, we’re all human, and that is what makes us beautiful. I love capturing those unspecified, solitary moments in my work, 'wow-ing' viewers and clients and (hopefully) leaving them with an air of mystery and appreciation for the image, the emotion, and the art.
Ever since I picked up a decent brush and dabbed paint on a canvas, art has been my passion."
