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.

  5. 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.
