Upcoming Art Shows

"Gone Wild"

"The Wash House"

"Don't Fence Me In"

I just found out this week that "Gone Wild" got in
in Sheridan Wyoming.
"The Wash House" and "Don't Fence Me In"
got in the RFAL/NMMAS show in Roswell, New Mexico.
Rosewell also has a miniature show at the same time.
Now is the time to get one ready to mail, and the other two delivered.
The inspiration for these paintings came from a trip to
Cloudcroft, NM, and a trip to O'Donnell Texas.

The Painter in PA

"The Painter in PA"

I have been playing around with some pictures from our trips, and I took a photo of this man on the street in Philadelphia in front of an art store. He was painting and selling his work for $5.00. He was showing off his work to anybody who would look. It was fun to see him there, and go into the largest art store I have ever been in! It had 3 floors. Their paper was on the top floor, and they had HUGE rolls of watercolor paper. I have never seen anything like it! I did buy a small pad of watercolor paper, and I really like it. I plan on checking into getting some larger sheets. It lifts easier than arches. It is smoother.

Long May it Wave

 Back to my roots! LOVE the American Flag.  This one was woven, using two paintings. watercolor
