About me - Husband, father, geographer, traveller, photographer and all round nice guy :) I have love of the oddities, doors, windows, textures etc and am used to the strange looks I get when taking a photo of a wall, the grass, a road or a something I find interesting.
If you are interested in purchasing a You Are My Sunshine wood sign, or any custom painted sign, you can preview some of the made-to-order designs I currently have in my Etsy Shop.

The significant other that has seemingly been more of a priority than my beloved husband and four precious children these last few years.
Amazingly enough, I ignored the warning signs and the not-so-subtle jabs from my family members, jealous of my patronizing relationship with my new love: my iPhone.
I ignored the nagging feelings of betrayal and guilt, because truthfully, I didn’t know how to break it off. Yes, a sleek, pocket-sized smart phone — aptly named for the fruit that Eve could not resist and the luscious fruit that plummeted Snow White into a deep sleep — had been my downfall. I will still use my phone to take pictures and to check email twice a day, but that will be all. Life has been flying past me while I stared down at you, and the subject matter I crave has been right in front of my eyes all along — those same eyes that have been hyper-focused on nothing more than a plastic, metal, and glass rectangle.
I wanted the yellow to stand out a little more, so I added shadow and highlight to those areas.
When I’m not working or chasing after the kids or the cows, you’ll usually find me in my little workshop with a cup of coffee in one hand and a paint brush in the other. I had never wanted a fancy phone with too many bells and whistles — email capability, simplified texting, millions of apps, and more.
I was still physically present, of course, but emotionally, I was engaging with a convincing foe. It occurred to me then that perhaps I had relied on the device too heavily for too many things.
The object of my affections had offered nothing real in return and unbeknownst to me, ensured that I would lose more than I could ever hope to gain. I know it’s hard to see in the photo’s, but the colors really stand out in person!
One that began with good intentions but slowly took over my attention; inundating my daily schedule, insisting on coming first. But my husband encouraged it, and assured me that I would save so much time not having to always hop on my computer for things like bill paying and email checking.
Throughout the day, I would give my mind permission to escape for 10, 15, 20 minutes at a clip. My family is no longer for sale and my memories with them would be created more vibrantly with me in their midst.
