Dallas art show



I got in the Artists of Texas art show in Dallas and went with Dyan Newton to see the show. 
It was about a 6 hour trip but we had a lot of fun. 
The reception was Saturday and was all day. Here are some photos of the show. 
I met up with an artcolony friend, Vernita, that I had not met so it was fun to get together with her too.
We went to the Cheesecake Factory Saturday night for supper. It was so yummy!

Snow Artists Christmas Checks

Check advantage is making some of my Christmas images into checks. These are called 'Snow Artists'
I have been doing snow families since about 1998 and have done so many! They are such fun for me to do.  If you need checks it would be fun to have some Christmas ones for the next couple of Months.  You can go to checkadvantage.com and go to licensed artists then click on my name. 
Next week there will be a couple more sets. You can purchase checks, check cover and labels all to match.

Johnny Rockets

When we were in Mexico this summer, we found this great hamburger place called,
Johnny Rockets. I loved the all white with the red stripes, red chairs and booths.  It was near closing time when Karla and I went in to get a hamburger and milk shake (Keri was sick in the room) and the people that worked there were discussing something and I caught their photo as we walked in. I considered putting something on the wall, but kept thinking I wanted it to be about them, not a clock or sign, etc.
This is painted on Strathmore 90lb watercolor paper with 2-3 layers of gesso for the texture, using watercolor.  I love painting this way, because of the lines in the paper, and being able to save back whites. It is half sheet size, so it will be large when framed.
