Out to Pasture- Day 4

We found this poor little old pick-up falling down beside the highway
at a junk place. It was so run down, that I doubt anybody could do
anything to fix it up!

The Cowboy-Day 3

Western art is my very favorite. I love horses, and, spurs, you name it!
When I started painting, this is what I really wanted to paint, but it is not always easy.
Sometimes I just jump in and do something western anyway!

Old Home Place-Day 1

This is a new year, and I can't believe that they go by faster and faster each year! I hope to paint a lot this year, and hopefully have more workshops and classes. I will be teaching the 3rd Fridays of each month here in Plains if anybody is close enough and interested in coming. It will be mainly watercolor. I plan on having a torn paper collage workshop in the spring and summer.  Probably March and June. Please contact me if you are interested.

I committed to a 30 day challenge with Leslie Saeta and 359 other artists. The deal is we paint a painting every day for 30 days. I am trying oils (water based) so I am hoping that mine will all be oil. I haven't done any oil painting since the late 80's so it is hard for me to switch!
However, if I get behind, I may have to do some watercolors. Each painting will be 6x6 on gessobord, and will be for sale unframed.  They will be listed in my page  'Available work' and can be purchased through pay pal really easy if you are interested.

Thank you for your continued encouragement, and checking out my new work, so for 30 days you may get tired of the blog going out, but I will post each one.
Here is the first one.  It is painted from a borrowed photo, which I just don't do.  A friend gave me a copy of this about 4 years ago, and I am finally painting it. different than the photo but the house and pick-up is the same.

Christmas with the Family 2013

I just can't believe it has come and gone again! We had a fun night, playing and being silly.
This year I decided to give everybody a painting. I don't like doing that for fear they will not like
it but decided to go for it. They all seemed pleased. Happy New Year to all of you,
and thank you for taking the time to comment and encourage me. May 2014 be the best year
ever for you! I pray for peace and happiness for us all.
