Colors of Life Show in Keller, TX

I was honored to be asked to  hang some of my collages in Keller, TX, which is in Ft.Worth, TX.
I took 66 pieces.  I borrowed some back from friends and family because I wanted to have a big show!

Here are some highlights and fun from the show.  The first one is my favorite! Our great grandson looking at the sign!  It was so exciting to have my grand-kids walk in and surprise me! I didn't know they were coming.  Some of my art friends came, and we had a fun time visiting.
It was a very special time.

I was asked to do the 2018 calendar this year for this Insurance Company. I am so honored they wanted to use my art. I have some ag scenes, etc. which worked good for their specialty.
 They print a lot, and give to their customers.

Saddle Shop

This is from Post Texas. An old building with a mural painted on one side. Bars on the windows and doors!  I tried it with pouring my watercolor and it got so dark it was ruined, so I used some gouache to turn it into a night scene. It is 18x24 framed.

Dead Vehicle Challenge

James Gurney posted a challenge...Paint a dead vehicle. One that doesn't run. Car or truck.
I wanted to do this old vehicle for a while so I set up there and did it.  It had to be painted on location, and you had to post a photo of your easel, etc.  This old international is in Plains, TX.
I started out trying to use oils but I don't paint enough with oil to know what to do, so I ended up using a sketchbook, and drawing it with my fountain pen and ink, then painted with watercolor and a little gouache.

Watercolor Workshop

I just finished a 4 day workshop. It was a lot of fun. Lots of hard work.
I had 10 signed up and due to illness, etc. 3 dropped out. So we had 7 really great fun artists all painting their own style using my drawing.  I never did get photos of theirs.

The first picture I did before workshop then I painted one along with them.
There were 2 from Arizona, and 1 from San Antonio area, and 4 from Lubbock. 


The black one has a new home.

Old International Pick Up

It has been hard to keep painting with having had foot surgery. It is harder to get around, but hopefully I can get back to daily painting. I have missed it.
