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.
