I like to make all kinds of quilts, from postcard to king-size. I have a Gammill longarm quilting machine, several domestic sewing machines, and also work with a Babylock Embellishing machine. In the past few years, I have tried my hand at painting with watercolors and art journaling. I also throw in a little nature photography and the occasional travel or grandchild pictures. Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Like Frida
I have posted before about a once-a-month journaling challenge on Facebook where you "visit" a different country each month. That challenge has now been continued by several of the participants, who chose Mexico as the destination for May. Just in time yesterday, I finished my painting inspired by artist Frida Kahlo's self-portraits.
A Little Like Frida, Jeanne Turner McBrayer, 2016
This was so much fun...I loved the loose interpretation and the use of color for value change.
I have also posted in the past about my persistent headaches, which have now lasted six weeks. Tomorrow I am having an outpatient surgery procedure that I hope will cure them. I didn't have sinus infection at all, just severely deviated septum blocking air flow. I will probably not be blogging for a few days after that. Wish me luck!
