Incredible Time Travel

We’re going to do some time traveling today through the magic of photos! Since Wes and I are preparing to list our house for sale this week, I thought it would be interesting to take a look back in time and see what changes have taken place over the past 20 years that we have lived here. It’s truly amazing to see the incredible transformation that a lot of time, hard work, tenacity and patience can create! I tried to take photos from the exact same location, from which we took the original ones over 20 years ago. I guess for us as artists, it was like creating a work of art using a BIG canvas! A masterpiece  in which we put a lot of blood, sweat and at time, tears into. So I hope you enjoy seeing these amazing “before” and “after” photos as much as I did! 

“Before” and “After”

I believe our lives are made up of different chapters or seasons, and there comes a time when the page is turning  and a new chapter is starting. And many times change can be very scary, as we tend to settle into our lives of comfort and sameness, but sometimes wonderful things happen when we’re willing to take that leap of faith, follow a dream and step out of our comfort zone. So while Wes and I are somewhat nervous about the coming changes, we’re both excited to see what this next chapter brings us, as we embark on our new adventure in life together! And don’t worry, I’ll keep you up-to-date each step of the way.

With the coming move, we are currently having a BIG moving sale on some of our artwork, and this includes some of our larger artworks! So if you would like to acquire one of our paintings for your very own collection, here’s the LINK to Collector’s Corner and if you see paintings you’d like to get, please email us at:

    Hi Rachelle, I would like to purchase “Pine Warbler” by Wes if it is still available. I did not see a purchase button. Thanks, Jan

    1. We’re not quite sure yet Heide, we’re considering staying in Eastern TN, but a couple of hours maybe southwest of here. We’ll keep everyone updated with our plans as they happen.
      We sure miss seeing you as well and thanks for the best wishes!
      Hugs 🙂


    What an amazing transformation you two performed! As a coincidence, this will be our last
    year at our timeshare, as they are closing it September 1. All the owners (except us, of course)
    have aged out. Glad you will keep in touch through your blogs. Don’t want to lose touch
    with you two wonderful folks. Paula and Tom

    1. Thank you Paula and Tom! Wow, that’s sad and I’m sure sorry to hear that for you both.
      We’re excited to see where this next season of life takes us, and I hope to keep doing my blog, to keep everyone updated with our future adventures and happenings. Wes and I certainly treasure our time spent and memories made with you both!!
      Hugs 🙂
