I Am an Artist!

This past week we had our last lesson for 2015. Seems weird that this years is almost gone -again.
We had such fun. It is fun to just make a statement! Why is it hard to call ourselves 'Artist?'
We used acrylics and stretched canvas. Just painting what we felt..or liked!
I got this idea from a friend who graciously let us use her idea! The stencil is from Donna Downey.

First Open House-2015

I am way behind on posting! My first Open house was Sunday the 15th.  It was an awesome day.
Te weather was perfect and we had a lot of friends to come and see my new little studio.  We had some fun refreshments and lots of art, especially Christmas art!  Thanks to those who bought some of my work.
It is always an honor when someone wants to buy what I create!
These are the girls fixing the tree, The plate with a cute tree, my little sister and I,
the table, and 2 of my students, Jane and Carol.

This is what my granddaughter in law made for my studio! I LOVE it!

Small Copies

I had some reproductions made of 6 images. I wanted them for the Petticoats on the Prairie show but they didn't come in in time.  I am going to the Ruffles and Rust Show in December and will take them to that.  If you are interested in one, you can let me know. 
They would make inexpensive art gifts.
They are $15.00 plus Shipping. Right now I don't know how much that would be.
These are on stretched canvas.
And are 2 1/4" deep.
Bike 7"x9"
Air-streamcamper 7"x9"
Texas boot 8x8
American boot 7x9
Bronc rider 5x10
Christmas camper 7x9

RV Park

Another fun Camper hunting a place to park!  The grays are really challenging when doing these, but was fun anyway.  This is 10x10 on stretched canvas. I am getting ready for the Petticoats on the Prairie show next week end.  I will have a booth. This also has some acrylic paint on it.

The New Mexico Watercolor Society Show just opened yesterday in Albuquerque, NM.
I got word that I won an award last week. I am so honored to even be in the show much less get an award! The woman in charge of the show sent me a photo because we couldn't make it to the reception.  This is a poured painting from a sketch I did.

Day 30

Well, the 30 days have come and gone! At times it seemed slow, but then it really passed fast.
This gate looked so old! it was worn, rough, splitting and discolored. I couldn't tell what the people were. 
 I wish I could talk to the owners of that gate! I would love to see behind it.
Santa Fe, NM is an old town, so there's no telling how old it really is.

Thanks for taking the time to view my paintings for 30 days! 
this is 6x9 and can be purchased at this address.

It is different than the others but such a great blue!

This building ended up reminding me of a camper! I guess the shape it ended up being.
I still wonder what the adobe is like on the inside.
