Pamla LaDon Kommer-Klenczar
I live in the Boston Mountain Range of the Ozarks, on the side of a mountain in the middle of a forest, with 4 large dogs and 1 husband. All of whom require a lot of attention.  

We own and operate a vacation cabin rental which keeps us busy and we get to meet a lot of people from all over.
I sing in my church band and do a vegetable garden every year plus little by little carve out some gardens and landscaping here.
However, my passion is painting! I love to paint with my pens, pencils and brushes from the photorealistic to the surreal!

I used to do a lot of street fairs and shows a year but after having moved to such a secluded area I now only involve myself with local shows and tours.
