“Courage is very important. Like a muscle, it is strengthened by use.”

Our Favorite Place – 8″ x 10″ Watercolor & Sharpie
This is another sock monkey building portrait. Our little town is having so much fun with these. This is the new Our Favorite Place, a Made in Oklahoma Store & Art Gallery, featuring only art and products created in Oklahoma. In the back is Sips & Bytes, where you can get a coffee or a smoothie and a dessert, while enjoying the free wi-fi. I love this store! My art is there, too. The proprietor is Karen Weldin, who owns Eufaula Lakeshore Realty, along with her partner, Susanne Bain. She bought this building a couple years ago and has been restoring it back to it’s original 100 year old glory. It has only been open a couple months and it’s a real treasure for the little town of Eufaula, Oklahoma.
The sign shop has been so busy lately that I am having a hard time getting over here to reply to comments. I apologize for that. I love your comments sooooo much and I read every one. Please don’t stop! I love hearing from you. I’ll get more time soon, I hope.
