Artists I Admire - Judy Mackey

Dancing With My Heart
16X20
Palette Knife/Oil

This amazing work of art is from one of my closest friends, a talented palette knife artist from Southlake, Texas, Judy Mackey. It wasn't just the title of this picture that made me decide it was the perfect anniversary gift for my husband this week, it was the gorgeous texture Judy puts into all her works.

Judy is the one who made me order my first batch of art business cards and then made sure I remembered to pass them out at all the art events. She has been my painting buddy for over 3 years and we sometimes travel together for girl trips to art workshops around Texas. We always find something to giggle about over our coffee in the mornings, and she was very tolerant at the little Fredericksburg cabin we shared, when I kept getting up in the middle of the night to check on the "cabin cat" who wanted to sleep on our front porch.

Check out her blog. I promise you will be tempted, especially when you see her beautiful poinsettias and holiday angels. Tell her Nancy sent you. Oh - and don't forget to ask her for her business card.
