New Website!

After several years, I finally have a website! I plan on making Honeysuckle Lane live on October 1st. I’ll be moving a lot of items over from my Etsy shop, but I will keep a few things on Etsy just for the traffic and referrals.

Similar to my first website from several years ago, this one will have several categories. I love to make quilts, but I also love to paint, and I’ll always do paper cuttings and valentines… and categories will make it look less cluttered.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar! I plan on having discounts for the opening!

See you soon,

Art for Sale at Honeysuckle Lane


I have nearly every painting listed in my Honeysuckle Lane shop now! It was a lot of work, especially considering every once in a while my listing would totally disappear when it was almost ready to publish. I’ll be so glad when I get my own website again.

But until then, if you’d like to shop my art just pop over here.

Or… you can always email me about something you like and I can invoice you directly.

I’ve also got note cards available! I used a couple different companies to see which I liked best, so you have either folded or flat cards to choose from.

Thank you for visiting,

Getting Ready for the Lavender Festival

I've had to put quilt making on hold while I get ready for the Lavender Festival. It's June 18th in Oak Ridge, TN. It was cancelled the last two years due to covid, so I'm hoping this year will be a great one with everyone excited to get back to see all the vendors.

I'm working on mostly 6x6 paintings, with a few slightly larger pieces.

I'm also doing some paintings on watercolor paper. These will be matted and ready to frame.

And I hoped to have prints to offer, but I am having a hard time getting the colors right on the prints. The scans look great... just like the original painting. But when I print, the colors are dark and dull, even the wrong colors. The first year I did prints, they were exactly as they should be. For the life of me, I can't figure out what's changed.

I just have next week left to paint, and that's really pushing it. I need time for the paintings to dry, add a sealer, then let the sealer dry... all before the 18th!

Thanks for visiting!

I’m Back!


Welcome back to my art blog!

Where have I been? My family has had a lot going on the last three years, so art and other handwork were put on hold for the most part while we focused on the most important things: the health and well-being of my little granddaughter during her cancer diagnosis, surgeries, treatments, and therapies. I just didn’t have time or energy to actively work my shops, advertise, promote, re-list, and all that goes with selling online. Honestly, those were no longer that important to me.

I have some larger paintings (see some in the sidebar) that are not listed in my Etsy shop. If you see something that interests you feel free to email me.

If you follow me on Instagramturn on notifications so you don’t miss a post about art listings.

Thank you so much for coming back to visit!

Take care and God bless,

Prayers for My Family

I never in a million years dreamed I would be writing a post like this. But I am, and I'm asking for your prayers. My little two-year-old granddaughter, Jolee, had a large brain tumor removed earlier this week. The biopsy confirmed that it was cancer, and chemo will begin when she has healed from the surgery.

Our family asks for your prayers...
for Jolee, for her mommy and daddy,
and for the doctors treating her.
We have faith that the Lord will see us through this and little JoJo will be a testament to His love and faithfulness.

Thank you so much for your prayers.
God bless, Lana

P.S. I apologize if I miss a comment. Blogger is not sending me notifications of like it used to do.

What's New? Rustic, Rural Art

I've been adding new work to my shop, Honeysuckle Lane.
And if you'd like to see works in progress, follow along over at Instagram.
I really like the paintings I've done this summer...
lavender and bees,
old churches,
barns and fields,
rural landscapes...
it's more like me...
of what I know...
of where I live.

I live in rural Tennessee... the Cumberland Plateau... the Southern Appalachians... always have, always will. Fields full of wildflowers, old barns, little country churches, and overgrown home-places are forever in my heart. It's hard not to paint what you love, and I love all of these and more.

Come back soon to visit. It's been too quiet around here. :)

God bless,

New Artwork...

I've been painting more recently, getting ready for the Lavender Festival. I've used a variety of paints... Waverly craft paint, Valspar paint, and Liquitex and Golden artist acrylic paints and painted a variety of subjects.

Over the next several days, I'll share some of the paintings I've done. If you are in the Oak Ridge, TN area come see me Saturday, June 17th at the festival! I'll be on the sidewalk in front of The Ferrell Shop.

Have a blessed day,
