Cowboy and Cowgirl Boots

These could be called 'His and Hers' ...if purchased together as a set!
I had fun working on these. Love the fringe on chaps. 
They are 16x16 on stretched canvas.  I wanted some more new pieces for the show in Fort Worth, TX. It is the month of November.

Saddle Shop

This is from Post Texas. An old building with a mural painted on one side. Bars on the windows and doors!  I tried it with pouring my watercolor and it got so dark it was ruined, so I used some gouache to turn it into a night scene. It is 18x24 framed.

Dead Vehicle Challenge

James Gurney posted a challenge...Paint a dead vehicle. One that doesn't run. Car or truck.
I wanted to do this old vehicle for a while so I set up there and did it.  It had to be painted on location, and you had to post a photo of your easel, etc.  This old international is in Plains, TX.
I started out trying to use oils but I don't paint enough with oil to know what to do, so I ended up using a sketchbook, and drawing it with my fountain pen and ink, then painted with watercolor and a little gouache.

Watercolor Workshop

I just finished a 4 day workshop. It was a lot of fun. Lots of hard work.
I had 10 signed up and due to illness, etc. 3 dropped out. So we had 7 really great fun artists all painting their own style using my drawing.  I never did get photos of theirs.

The first picture I did before workshop then I painted one along with them.
There were 2 from Arizona, and 1 from San Antonio area, and 4 from Lubbock. 


The black one has a new home.

Old International Pick Up

It has been hard to keep painting with having had foot surgery. It is harder to get around, but hopefully I can get back to daily painting. I have missed it.

New Mexico watercolor show

I did this sketch of this saddle and horse and I liked it so I decided to try it in watercolor.

It was accepted in the NMWS show In Albuquerque NM and I found out it won an award! Am excited just to be in the show but an award is fun too!!

I used brown tobacco ink and love it. I wondered if I could use it on a painting...and think it worked!
