I’m Virginia Spencer, an artist living with a lab named Tallie.
I work with acrylic, watercolor and ink.
I’ve dabbled in lino cuts and printing.
I crochet, knit, sew and embroider. I even like macrame.
Recently I joined the modern age and made some digital art too.
I find anything that uses creativity and imagination to be interesting.
I also write pretty bad poetry and occasionally a not so bad story.
Enjoy my site and feel free to comment if you have a question.
This little house painting is one of my favorites.
Acrylic miniature, 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
This site is dedicated to my wonderfully tolerant and easy going husband who puts up with all my nonsense and weird sense of humor. I love you very very much.

Love your pictures Virginia. Oh and very cute dog!
Did you do any painting on wood in 1985
Thank you! I didn’t do any painting on wood in the 80’s. I always use the signature vmrs on my work as there is another Virginia Spencer who paints.
Sorry it took so long to answer, I didn’t see this until now.
Great start Virginia 🙂 And it’s a delight to see your wonderful artworks again 🙂
Thank you so much!
I like your artwork very much, I hope to see more of it.
I’m also slightly in love with your dog and want him for my own. I would not be oppossed to seeing more pictures of him as well. 🙂
Thank you, he’s outside staring at a tree. His tree staring record is three hours but I think he might break that today. The tree is looking very self conscious.
Poor tree! Does he ever change up what he moons over? Or does he have a special likeing for bark? (Bad pun not intended.)
I really like your pictures, especially the dog and the stones. Good work!
you’re paintings are really gorgeous!
I really love your work. Love miniatures. Noticed your comments about the condo in Bay Beach and the marina.
Thanks Sharon. I always find the Strand enjoyable. I just read the article about the bridge. Interesting stuff.
Hello! Just found you through the Crazy Chicks Club, and so far I really like your blog! I love your work, and I’m happy to find another creative blogger that just started to blog too… I think us newbies have to stick together, and I just subscribed to your blog! Best of luck to you ~Pam
Hi Virginia, I just came across your blog and wanted to tell you how much I like it. I plan to visit frequently. Your paintings are wonderful and your writing gives me a good chuckle.
Virginia, you are totally crazy entertaining and talented! I need to visit your blog regularly – it’s good for my spirit and remembering how to smile! That picture frame is a masterpiece. 🙂
Thanks June! That means a lot coming from a lady like yourself. 🙂
You have a great sense of humor Virginia ! On this dreary day in Maryland it was wonderful finding your blog. I am not sure how I found it, because I was surfing on WetCanvas and somehow ended up here! I have subscribed to your blog. Thanks for telling the Nigerian story….I just deleted the email I got from that country yesterday. Hug that adorable dog for me.
Thanks so much!! I appreciate it. 🙂
thanks for stoppin by my blog! very very cute!! 😀
Awesome miniatures… here in my town are a specialist painter in the art of miniatures i make an enterview called “Wuenselao en el país de las miniaturas” and I published in my blog, the only thing bad is that it is written in spanish but you can see some pics of his job
My Spanish isn’t that great but I was able to read most of it. Thank you for showing me that. His miniatures are lovely.
I seem to have left a contact form instead of a comment! Sorry.
😀 No problem! Thanks for stopping by.
Happy October to you! Keep up the creative juice and thank you for showcasing your painting!
really, really cool!
love miniature watercolors! and i think your dog and mine are long-lost twins 🙂
We have a nude water color, done sometime in the 70’s or 80’s – would that have been your work?
Nope, I’m sorry, it’s not. I would have been in school at that time. I always sign with “vmrs” as there is another artist with a similar name.
