About the happies

‘the happies’ is really just me, Shawna.  Hi.

It’s me learning to live, be free, raise a family. . . and paint.

Sometimes I’m able to stop and breathe. . . these are the wonderful moments that play out on this blog.

Sometimes I sprout smaller more concise thoughts on Facebook:  Shawna Gilmore – Visual Artist

here’s my website:  www.shawnagilmore.com

My husband is a fantastically funny writer here: eddygilmore.com

you can buy his book(as seen below and which I illustrated) here:

The Emancipation of a Buried Man
