A Dusting of Snow on the Prairie...

We have our first dusting of snow for the season!

The weather man spoke of it a couple of days ago and it was to be a grand snow, arriving yesterday...

so I waited anxiously, peeking from the big arched window in my studio, as I painted.

We have just returned back home after a wonderful Christmas shared with my family, back in our home town. I am enjoying this time brushing up on my ever-so-loved watercolors. Just playing. No art commitments or deadlines at this moment. It feels fabulous to just savor Winter and silence for awhile.

The snow did arrive...

Just enough to add a splash of white to the ground!

This morning I grabbed my camera and made my way outside to capture the beauty. (It will have to do until that BIG snow arrives)!

The orange...

With all of this Winter grey is so lovely.

Back inside.

Cold hands and toes.

It was certainly time for tea!

Hey! Did you have a nice holiday? I do hope that yours was filled with much goodness.

I must show you a package that arrived by mail. It was an art exchange in which I participated in. Just look at this hand painted wrap! (Artist, Peggy Hood).

I must remember to paint some of my gift wrapping next year!

Enjoy your day, my friend!

I shall meet up with you again very soon!

Celebrating December...


Can you believe it? In just a few more days we will be celebrating Christmas!

I must confess, my celebrating has begun! I am all caught up on commission work and at last, am able to dabble in my own art, such as my art journal. It felt so fabulous to sit by the Christmas tree early this morning, with my cup of coffee and watercolors. Our new little friend joined in! Although we have no children...

our home just seems much more complete now with the "Elf on the Shelf"! Any name suggestions would be appreciated in the comments, please, as we have not yet named our boy elf!

Presents have been purchased, wrapped, and are displayed beneath the tree. Donations, check!

Cards were all addressed and mailed soon after Thanksgiving.

Seriously, friends... This feels so incredibly nice! I must do this again next year! All I did differently was start earlier and stayed committed! I even did a complete purge with my clothes closet!

Oh, and then I did treat myself to a set of six Laura Mercier soufflé body cremes!


Oh my.

If you have not tried...

You really must.

I loved every scent, however, my personal favorite has so far, been the pistache.

I will now be requesting that Santa bring me a full size jar each year since it is a bit expensive.

We have enjoyed getting out and admiring pretty things...

There's just something about all of the lights, the music, the smells, and even the tv commercials that warm the heart each December.

I pray for world peace and for those who dread this time of year due to circumstances. Please, do not let these people go forgotten, dear ones. We can all give a smile, a hug, or a greeting card to help brighten someone's day!

Merry Christmas to all...

from our home to yours.

See you again soon!

Flea Market Meets Fall...

How can this be?

Just a few weekends ago, the husband and I were out and about, in sleeveless tops...

enjoying such vintage goodness at a big flea market event in Kansas City!

And at home...

Painting beach themed commissions!

The bright sun peeking through our large windows.

A gentle breeze on wind chimes, producing a most tranquil tune.

Still holding on to Summer. Tightly.

Today is different.

The mornings are quite cool and I have thrown on a sweatshirt!

Reality has quickly set in.

It is Fall.

Hello, October!

Are you ready?

Sunflowers galore!

Hello, friends!

Oh, how time flies and I can't believe that Summer has come to an end.

I have so much show & tell you...

However, for now I am simply going to send some sunshine your way...

Until another day!

I have been painting sunflowers here and just yesterday morning, I captured this lovely photo, just as the sun was peeking out!

These are available...

Well, a few still remain. I sold some last night through my Facebook page, " Missy Trent Art"...

won't you please drop by, "like" my page and follow my adventures there as well? I would love to have you!

Don't sunflowers just make you smile big?

They are so bright and cheery!

I am a Kansas girl, indeed!

I even have them on my coffee mugs!

I will try really hard to not be absent for too long.

I truly do feel a loss when I can't find the time to post.

Thinking of you!

History love...


I love it now that I am a grown up!

I have enjoyed learning all about Frida Kahlo this year through books, the Internet, a movie, and her diary. Although we studied Frida in art classes, I was never as interested as I am now.

I'm crazy over art history these days.

I never tire of painting Frida and her colorful wardrobe.

I am also very fascinated by her blue house.

I would love to have a cup of coffee on her beautiful patio, surrounded by plants, texture, color...and possibly a monkey or two?

My own patio is quite lovely and this weekend I have really enjoyed it with the chimes playing beautiful music...

Flowers "shadow dancing" to the beat... feathers drifting in with the slight breeze.


We love our prairie patio space.

We did enjoy history in another way over the weekend and had coffee in an old underground Irish Pub.

This is O'Malley's Pub in Weston, Missouri- a must see if you are ever in the area!

I took many photos, but really just wanted to sit, sip my coffee and absorb the smells, sounds, and surroundings. Being underground, this pub does have a musty odor, but don't let that stop you. This was not our first time there nor will it be our last. A favorite place of mine!

So worth it.
