Day One of 2015.

It's nearing the last day of 2015 which prompted me to take a look at my blog - that long ignored website that so occupied my thoughts when I was a painter.  Life has sure intervened in the past two years and many, many zany things have happened.  I am now the owner/operator of a hand printed wallpaper company, C.W. Stockwell.  I manufacture and sell the very famous "Martinique" pattern - a pattern that my company designed and copyrighted in the 1940s and which has always been featured at the Beverly Hills Hotel in the coffee shop.  It's a fascinating business and with the lure of the 50s in design and decorating, the wallpaper is very much in demand.

This business is keeping me busy and involved and I love it!

Just thought I'd post and see if anyone's still out there.


  1. Glad to hear from better get those paints out again!! Interesting on earth did you ever get into wallpaper (the very bane of me)?

  2. I owe you a very long email, for sure! But wanted to say I was so glad when your blog popped up on my list as active again. And the wallpaper venture sounds so exciting.
