Drastic measures: A Walking Journey to Alaska

I'm Stacy Schimbeck, I am an Artist, Art Educator and Writer. In November of 2013 my Cardiologist told me that I need to loose 100 pounds or Die.  On May 30th, 2014 I am headed north from my hometown of Washington, Utah.  We will have a send-off fundraising breakfast that morning and then I will hit the road.  I am amazed at the support and offers that are coming in quickly.  I do need logistics, and would love to document my journey.  I will also be creating paintings along the way, watch for them to be posted.  My Facebook page is titled, "Drastic Measures:  A Walking Journey to Alaska."  Check it out and maybe give a like.  If you would like to donate, please do so quickly so I can prepare!  Mostly I will need good shoes.  Thanks for believing in me.  Click the link below to donate.

Rockin' the studio, June 2013

I've been wanting to get some nice southern utah genre paintings and landscape paintings going. It is great to work a little larger.  This painting is 24 x 30 and the light just glows.

Stacy loves painting old barns, and does a fabulous job of getting great lighting.  He loves the textures in the wood and other materials.  He especially loves the different colors in metal corrugated roofing.  Look for more of these to show up.

Damn Chickens

Damn Chickens
This one is not a black and white painting, but actually has vibrant reds, yellows, browns, and whites.  This is the only picture of it as it sold in its first showing.
This is a long, skinny painting, and will need a custom frame.  This painting has since sold.

This is also in a private collection.

Mountain Men, Cowboys and Other People

This is a mountain man who lives in our neighborhood.

I love the romanticism of cowboy art.
This next one is of my niece, Megan.  It became her wedding gift.

 This piece was commissioned, but we still have the painting.  They wanted a self portrait as a Scott on the golf course.

Stacy loves fishing and fishermen.

This guy looks like he is cheating at poker.

This was a commissioned piece.

A duck hunter and a fairy.  I love the translucent wings.

These are a few I found that are great.  These may be moved, added to or changed often.
