Art Tells the Story -1st Edition 2012

Art Tells the Story...is another book I got in.
This is copyright of Visual Language-International Voices, and each of the artists that are represented in this book
You can get a copy of this book by going to
www.lulu.com
and type in:  Art tells the Story-Visual Language
in the search box.

It is exciting to see your work in print, especially in an art book.  I feel very blessed to get to create and share! I never dreamed it would ever happen!

Demo for Yoakum County Art Association

I got to do the demo last night for our art asc. here in Plains, and it was a lot of fun.
I have been a member since the late 80's! I think I have held every office there is! When I joined I knew nothing about art except that I loved it, and wanted to paint so bad.  I had always drawn and doodled....always staying busy 'making or creating' something.  I am sad to say that several of the women who were awesome artists that helped me so much, are no longer with us. I learned a lot from those women who had been right where I was at that time.They were always so encouraging!  I hope that I can be a mentor also, and help those who are just starting.  I love to share whatever I have learned.
This poor zebra has a ways to go, but I will keep on, until I think it will be ok! Maybe I will post him when he or she  is finished.

I will be in Clovis, NM tomorrow night, doing a demo.  Think I need to start something else, since this poor guy is not looking so good!

New Book is finally here!

 I am excited to get in another book by Chris Unwin.  This is an awesome book, and I am so very honored to be in it with so many wonderful artists! Some I hope to meet someday and some that I have watched for years!  This is the cover...a painting by Chris.
 This Painting has always been one of my favorites.  It belongs to a friend in Lubbock, TX.  It started out as an experiment.  I drew flowers on plain white watercolor paper, painted them and then drew the zebra's over the flowers, trying to get them in the right spot. It was fun to paint!
It got 'nearly'  a 2 page spread!
The Rodeo Clown was one of my first collages that I did.
It also belongs someone in Lubbock, TX.  This has some acrylics in the back ground, and some in the shadow areas.

I have a few of these to sell, if you are interested in buying one, email me and I will send you the info.  I will sign it and mail it to you as soon as possible.
