Saddle Up!


I was asked to hang my artwork at the college in Clovis, NM in November and December, so I have been working hard to get some new work done. They said it was ‘Cowboy’ country so it gave me an excuse to do some western art…one of my favorites!
This painting is both transparent and gouache.
The  sky (and blue highlights) and the hair is gouache.  The rest is transparent.

Dont Fence Me In!


This old truck happened to be in O'Donnell, TX too. I love old things, especially the old vehicles.
 All of the old trucks there were behind the fence, so I had to put it in too!
Seems like I get caught up always putting what is there! I definitely like realistic!
I also relied on the gouache again for the sky, instead of transparent color
