Flower Cart

The Flower Cart is 14x14 and I started it Saturday afternoon at the Arts Festival. I was surprised at how fast it went together. This was a fun piece to do. This photo was taken in Boston, a few years ago.

Midland,TX Demo finally finished!

This is the Demo I started while in Midland, and just finished. Sometimes it is hard to make yourself finish them. This one is sort of funny because I told them the story about my signature, and so it is on the green cup, upside down. There is also just an SP too.The story about the signature is when I was in a workshop a few years ago, the artist teaching embarrassed me so bad over my signature. Just went on and on about it. How it looks so amateur. I signed it in a hurry because he told us to bring our work up and to be sure and sign it. Well, I just put my name, and didn't put it in a straight line. was crooked. Ever since then, I worry when I sign my name. It has stuck with me.
I really enjoyed my time in Midland! The people there are great! and so welcoming!

Two New Books

Rodeo Clown
Fashion Statement
Summer Fence
Three's a Crowd

I found out last week that the three images, Rodeo Clown, Fashion Statement, and Threes a Crowd was chosen for the new Creative Touch 5 book, by Chris Unwin. I was in it last year with 'Diamond Reo' an old truck painting. I don't know yet which one or if they will use all of them.

The painting, Summer Fence will be in the Best of America's Landscapes, put out by Kennedy publishing. I was in their watercolor book a few years back.

I feel very blessed, and am very excited to get to be in these two books! I will have some of the Creative Touch to sell if anybody wants one. The other one you would just have to order if you decided to purchase one. (or I could order one for you)

Demo in Lubbock..haven't name it yet
Last night in Portales, NM before Demo started

The past four days have been nothing but torn paper collage! I was ask to demo at the Lubbock Arts Festival, Friday-Sunday and I had a demo scheduled in Portales, NM for Monday night.
My fingers still have glue on them! But what fun it was. There were so many people who came through the arts festival. I met a lot of nice people who appreciate art! I did sell my Rodeo Clown. It was sort of sad for me because I really liked him, but we can't keep everything we do.
I still have so many stacked up as it is!
The pictures aren't in order because I don't know how to move them once they are on here, so they have the info under them.

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 ...
