Thank you; The Positive Benefits of Gratitude


What if all you had tomorrow are the things you are thankful for today? 

If everyone in the world was more grateful and less hateful, could we put an end to wars, theft and the evils covetousness leads to, and take better care of the poor and afflicted?

I'm excited to announce that I will be doing a series of wedding planning broadcasts on Kim  Power Stilsons' Talkworthy Show on BYU SiriusXM Radio 143 at 3 p.m. Eastern; the dates will be announced soon. 

Please join me on Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day for a discussion about the relevancy of the wisdom of ancient saints and how we can benefit from their teachings. That's February 14th and March 17th at 3 p.m. Eastern.

Eagle Scouts and Art

We were so excited and thrilled for Tim when he became an 
Eagle Scout after working so hard.







 I made this commemorative painting for him. 
This collage represents Tim's love of his country, 
nature, gardening and swimming.
Oil and paper on board
24 x 20 inches



If you'd like to purchase any of these, call or send me an email at pammcmurtry@yahoo.com.  I'm also taking orders for commission work, if you see a style you like but want a different subject I'd be happy to make something special for you.

These are my latest paintings for a portfolio of religious art.  The other pieces are also available, the sizes and information are on the website above. I am also looking into having giclee copies made  which are beautiful and less-expensive than original art.
