Wyoming Cowboy

When I went to Wyoming last year, I got some good photos of cowboys! I saw this man the first night, and in our area we don't see these kind of hats, and I was taking photos constantly!  I love the scarves they wear too.  I still want to go back! Maybe next year. It just didn't seem to work out this year.
The workshop is awesome plus all the great subjects to paint or collage.

Collage Workshop in Plains, TX

Sandy, Nancy, Bob, Olene, Alice, Reta and Jane
I had a great class this past week end.  They all jumped in and tore up lots of magazine pages!
When it got quite, that is all you could hear, was paper ripping. Was such fun!
They all had a great portrait when they finished.  There were 7. Sandy Oveson came all the way from DeKalb TX, Bob and Nancy Phillips from Roswell, NM, Alice Hahn from Eunice, NM, Olene Harris from Tatum, NM, and Jane Phillips and Reta Nail from Lubbock,TX.Alice chose her husband Troy to collage. Bob did a self portrait, and Nancy collaged a cute picture of her Mother.  Olene collaged her Grandson, Jane a basketball player and Reta a family member.  Sandy did a cupcake, then started on some tuba players from a parade. I was proud of all their hard work!

Brownfield Art Show

This past week was the Brownfield TX art show. It is about 40 miles from here, and I always try to enter.  This year I got a 1st on my miniature flower, and I was excited to get something on this because it is the first oil that I have entered since the late 80's.
The 2nd place is a woven barn. This was done for a demo in Portales, NM last year. I was shocked that it even placed. I was hoping it would sell but it came back home!
