Kirklands Stores

I found out that one of my small paintings will be reproduced and sold in the Kirklands Stores.
I am sure it will be enlarged quite a bit from the original size. I hope the store in Lubbock, TX carries it, so I can see it!
If you are in one of the stores be sure and look for it! It may even be available online.

Sketch turned into Christmas Card

I did a boot sketch and the owner of the boots liked the sketch and said just throw some lights or something and make a card with it. So thanks to Gouache i could do that. It turned out cute for a western Christmas card.  The Tag will have Merry Christmas on it.

They have a cute dog, named Fuzz, and he will be on the inside with the verse.

Amarillo Watercolor Society

I was invited to go to Amarillo TX and do a workshop for Amarillo watercolor Society.
I had such a fun time.  We had 10 to come and they were all ready and so receptive, and encouraging to me and my work. I judged their show which was so hard.  The work was really good . It makes you feel bad to not be able to just give them all awards but that would defeat the purpose.
The two bottom sketches I did while there.

Glass is Hard!

This week a friend, Mollie Jones, came for a visit. She is one of the best painters of glass I know. We had a little mini class one afternoon, and after she left, I set up a quilt I made with a bowl that was an anniversary gift, and worked really hard trying to get a glass look! Whew! it is not easy. especially with out Mollie standing beside me!
The glass with the grapes is what I did with Mollie's help.

New MIxed Media

I did another large collage of the longhorn cow that I saw near Kerrville this summer.
I had the other one 'Lunch Time' ready for a show and I sold it, so I did another view to replace it.  It will go to Breckenridge for the Best of the Best Show.

This was very tedious and takes a while to do one like this.  It is 30x40 on stretched Canvas.
I haven't decided on a name yet.
