Thank you for your continued interest in my art,  my work, and my crazy world.  Yall are appreciated!


Just stuff:
I haven't been working in the studio as much as I like to.  Yes, I'm whining again.  haha  This winter weather in Texas (warm then rainy, then cold, then foggy, then almost hot, and then cold and mucho rain) does not go with Fibromyalgia.  So if you can hear me snoring where ever you are,  you know I'm taking a Fibro nap which could last a week or more. hahaha  I need a better looking gown... scared some fool that dared to come to my door way too early in the day.  Wish I could of pinched him,  but the sight of me and my 12 year old gown... well,  let's just say he'll be going to meetings for quite a while.  

I hope you had a Fabulous Merry Christmas or whatever makes the season right for you.  And you were surrounded by good folks that make you feel special and loved.  And that's cause you are special.  We all need some extra love, so we'll have plenty to share to those in need.  xox

New Studio

Here's my new studio.  I was suppose to show it in just a few days.  How can I say it... things got in the way.  hahaha   And none of them were fun. But we are on the mend.  The details are just too boring.  haha  

I have two of these carts that fit under the table on either side of my chair.   One holds craft paint etc.,  
the other holds artist acrylics, etc.


 I love IKEA wooden lazy Susans in the studio.


 Here you can see both carts.  Polka dots on my chair are inspiring. teehee..


All tools are in plain sight.  Looking for tools takes away time and creative inspiration for me.  This is messy now because I'm working on 7 small paintings at once.  "Crazy Making"  would be an under statement I think...

Now yall have a great night.  Keep your fingers crossed I finish a couple of these paintings in this life time.

More Folk Art...

Oops! Didn't mean to be gone so long. Everything around here happens at the same time.  I bet it's the same at your house. Today I'm showing a folky antique toy, a large folk art carved wooden chain,  and some new folk art paintings by me!

vintage red childs toy, good condition. 
7.5 x 10 inch bed  x 7inches tall
Looks really sweet under the Christmas tree. 
$45 + $5 shipping

Very large folk art wooden chain. 
It was laminated/glued to make a piece to carve this large.  You can see that detail in the (ankle) shackle. There are no joints, it's one piece, including the ball.  I don't know how old it is, or who made it.  I've had it about 20 years. The top photo shows the actual color of the wood. It looks great draped over a cupboard door.
Ball - 9 inches 
Shackle - 8.5 inches
Links - 4 inches x 2.5 inches
app. 35 links  app. 8 ft. long
$425 + $18 shipping

The Crow
This painting started out a digital sketch.  The longer I looked at it, already attached to the board, I knew it needed some color.  Then I decided it needed texture, giggles, lots of texture.  I may have gotten carried away because it doesn't look so good in this photo.  But in person?  It looks great.  If you decide you don't agree, ship it back to me.  I'll refund your $.
Ingredients:  ink, heavy paper, watercolor pencil, lots of varnish, on a board, ready to hang.

Beaded Fruit and a Face Jug

More folk art.  As before,  leave a comment or email me at   pjhornberger1@gmail dot com   to purchase.  I'll send a PayPal invoice to your email address.  Hope you find something you like.
 Big hug ~ PJ





Bowl of Fruit  These are vintage from the 40's or 50's.  As you can see,  there's beaded and sequins.  I've collected them for years. I think there's 24 pieces: lemon, peach, plum, apple, orange, banana, strawberry, raspberries.  A nice variety.

This is how I displayed them.  Wish I had those wire baskets. hahaha Famous last words.
$190 for the fruit and basket. $8. for shipping
PJHornberger1@gmaildotcom for questions or to purchase.  Comments are nice too.  












Heatir ? and Billie Meaders face jug with tobacco spit glaze 7.15.1998
If you're not familiar with face jugs they are a little scary the first time you see them.  I've heard them called lots of different names, but face jug fits them, I think.   They were made to collect, hold kerosene, keep away haints, hold the whiskey, whatever it was that needed to be stored and the kids not get into it.  There's all kinds of different stories about them. Some made up yesterday. grin  Each potter has their own look/style.  After awhile you can recognize who the potter is without looking for a signature.  
The Meaders face jugs are highly sought after pottery. I believe these two split up the work.  One turned, the other did the glazes.  All of these would be fired in outdoor furnaces.  At least that's what was most common. 
Meaders Face jug  $225 + $5 shipping
To purchase or questions: PJHornberger1@gmaildotcom

brain block or somethin'...

Good morning to ya.  Well, it's morning to me.  Just have not gotten my day started.  It'll happen. I just know it will.
Do you have an Apple computer?  Do you have any problems getting photos onto emails?  That's where the brain block comes from.  I just can't seem to get it right.  Every so often I get lucky and it works.  Then I have a brain freeze and CAN NOT remember how I did it.  Cause it was an accident,  not a thought out plan.  More on that wisdom later.  
In Texas we call that 'by the seat of my pants'.  My whole life is by the seat of my pants.  big giggles  Not sure why.  Guess it has something to do with being spontaneous.  That sounds much better than 'crazy from Texas'.  
$19.95 fix it/tune ups with one of those very nice Apple people.  They can do amazing things over the phone.  I mean AMAZING things.  I mean I actually bond with them in the first 5 minutes.  Can never remember their name though.  But that's something else that needs some work.
If I figure the photo blip out,  I may have a sale or something.  I was leaning that direction when I remembered the photo problem. 
Oh, shoot.  I think Herbert is taking a nap without me.  I hate when that happens.  Have a nice rest of the day.  Nice talking to ya. my best
Back to the photos,  I'm thinkin' it would work if I did one of the$19.95 fix it/tune ups with one of those very nice Apple people.  They can do amazing things over the phone.  I mean AMAZING things.  I mean I actually bond with them in the first 5 minutes.  Can never remember their name though.  But that's something else that needs some work.

Really bad old photo,  and one of the best Adam & Eve's I ever carved.
