Roswell NM Show

 Roswell, NM has a juried show each year, and this  year, I had 3 accepted.
This old truck, is from a photo I took last summer at a friends ranch.
It is called:
'I Could have had a V-8'
 This one is a Torn Paper Collage on Canvas.
'Elegance is an Attitude'
My Garden Chair, was painted from our back yard.
we have 2 chairs and a table in the back yard, and I used it for this painting. It is watercolor but I drew in a back ground, and painted in an under-painting first.

Their shows are always so nice. A lot of people come to the opening.  They also have an awesome miniature show with entries as far away as England!

Happy Fourth of July!

I love flags, and have painted several, and have sold several, and given several away! Our flag is so special-What it stands for. 
This painting is watercolor and  was done from looking at the one in my art room.  My art room is decorated with flags,and the pledge of allegiance.  The window belonged to my Grandmother from East Texas. There is no telling how old this window is.  I folded up a flag and put behind it, and it hangs in my art room today.
We should treasure our country and our freedoms. God Bless America.

Last year I didn't get into the Wyoming Watercolor Show, but this year, I had 2 paintings accepted.
We saw this old car in Ft.Worth back in the spring, and I met this fisherman in Florida.  He let me take his photo. He actually tried to pose for me.
