I have another new mixed media collage done. The greens were a little challenging! In the spring the cactus are so pretty. They are called Prickly Pears. I took this photo with my phone and the colors aren't exact. It is 12x24 on stretched canvas.

I have worked a long time trying to get my saddle just right! here are some of the steps. I forgot to get the first drawing but you can still tell. I finally got my acrylic paint out and painted some of it.
I like the way it turned out using both, Magazine pages as well as acrylic.
I just finished 31 days of December. It was a lot of fun. I used a 5x5 hand book sketchbook. One of my favorites. I had a list on World of Watercolor on Face Book. I used ink, watercolor, gouache and even some Casein. Gold ink as well as black.
It was fun. There are a few that I didn't get done. It is hard to get one done each day. I sketch at night, so sometimes it would be 11:00 before I was finishing.
I have a few of the desktop calendars with flag scenes of my original sketches or paintings. They would make fun stocking stuffers.

I received an email that my painting 'Keri's Jacks' won an award at the SWA show in Ft. Worth, TX.
SWA is Society of Watercolor Artists.
The judge like the subject matter and the way it was painted. I am thrilled that it was noticed!
This is a portrait of an artist I met in 2013. He is an awesome artist, and sculptor. He has done some famous scuptors of marines. Unfortunately his beautiful son was killed while in the Marines.
It is a 12 x12 on stretched canvas.
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.
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.
I received notice that 'Keri's Jacks' has been accepted into the Juried Membership Show.
Nancy Lamb, a local artist judged the entries. It starts Dec. 2nd -Dec.29th at the Fort Worth Community Art Center, Gandy Street, Ft.Worth TX
This was a fun piece to do, with loads of memories! I used to love to play jacks.
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.
The West Texas Watercolor Society show starts this week, and I was awarded a Jack Richeson & Co., Inc award. It is fun to get to go to their website and pick out new paint! I have started using Casein paint and really do like it, so that is my choice of paint!
