The Artist's Magazine

I was invited to join an artist blog back in the summer, called "ArtColony,"
and we just encourage each other, and watch and see what is going on with everybody...what we are painting, etc. Jane Freeman, the one who started it, was featured on the Artists Magazine Blog. http://artistsblog.artistsnetwork.com/
Christmas we drew names and sent paintings to each other. That was such fun! Now I have a wonderful painting from Mollie Jones, from the Tyler area. Ellie Sethman in California, has one of my paintings.
You can click on it to read about it, plus you can go to the blog and see some awesome work from all over the US, and outside the US.
I feel very honored to be part of such a group.

Hobbs NM Demo

Demo for Llano Estacado Art Asc.

Lil Red Bike

Yesterday was the demo in Hobbs NM, and it was a lot of fun.
The Art Asc. members there were very friendly, and put me at ease.
The Demo is 18"x24", and I just got started, and was time to quit.
I realized after I was through that I didn't start with big enough pieces, plus,
I started out w/ the wrong papers. I intended to use black and white, and I was putting down red and white! It was because I was nervous I guess!
I worked a little over an hour on it, and it looks like nothing! I will post it when I am finished.
I was excited to sell another little collage. The Lil Red Bike was a muddy watercolor to begin with, and I collaged over it, matted it with red and white, and put in a black frame.
So the Lil Red Bike has a home in Hobbs now!

At the Fair

I was acceptd into the New Mexico watercolor society show again this year. It will be in Las Cruces NM instead of Albuquerque NM The theme ...
