The Birth of a Blog

I have added a link to my new friend's blog. While meeting in an RV park in Kingman at Thanksgiving, we discovered a mutual love of painting and talking about painting and she was intrigued with the idea of a blog. She immediately took my suggested route of using this blog forum and set about creating her own blog. I have watched her fledgling blog since then and think you all might like to pop on over and have a look for yourselves! She has a style of painting in oils and watercolors that is realistic, but definitely charmingly painterly as well. Her name is Connie Hummel-Kornell and the link to her blog is: She will soon be adding more of her paintings and this promises to be a very beautiful addition to her blog. The paintings I have seen of hers are reminiscent of Norman Rockwell or maybe Currier and Ives with a bit of Thomas Kincaid thrown in.

Check out her photos and ponderings on her very interesting life.

Thanks for your kind remarks and for linking to my site. My artwork comes from my heart and it is funny you should have mentioned Norman Rockwell. I was offered a free position by him in his first classes taught in his Famous Artists School back east. I had just graduated from high school and my parents were hardworking middle class and could not afford my room and board. My father carried a regret for not being able to provide that bit of schooling to me until the day he passed away. As for me, I would have enjoyed being taught by Mr. Rockwell, but I feel I evolved in the manner I was meant to. If my projects (which also include sculpture and stained glass) bring joy to a single person, then I am rewarded.

I'm looking so forward to seeing mor eof your work when you get the album ready to share! It promises to be a great one to explore.

The album! oh, my, I almost forgot about that! Got carried away with hats and new designs for the blog--how do you do this? Something to be said for left brain thinking, I certainly wish I had more of it so that I could truly organize things as I go along. Most often I'm flying by the seat of my pants. Thanks for reminding me and have a Great day.
