Western Christmas Show

 

If you are attending the Columbia River Circuit Finals in Redmond next weekend, please stop in and visit my booth at Western Christmas Show nearby. This map is a little difficult to read, but it's on 13th St. just off Airport Way. The show is an extraordinary collection of the best western style gifts imaginable. I've never participated in a better quality show. Hope to see you there. Nov. 2 -4.

Consignments

Just a reminder to my collectors and friends that Christmas is around the corner. A commissioned painting is a terrific gift. This is one I did of a couple's two daughters, their horses and dog. I paint lots of horses, people, dogs, and even livestock. If you have an idea for a painting that you might want me to do, just send me and email and we can talk about it. It might also be a good time to check out my paintings on my website again, and I sell paper and canvas prints as well.

Shows

    I've been having some successes of late. I sold the two paintings above, and the two below were accepted into some shows.  Third Crossing will be in the WAOWing the Lone Star State show in Fredricksburg, Texas and Who Broke Who is heading to the NOAPS Best of America Show in Bolivar, Missouri. I'm also planning some holiday shows as well. By the way, if you are interested in giving a unique Christmas gift, I am accepting a limited number of commissions and now is not too soon to get something going.

Hereford Calf

Just returned from the Ritzville, Washington Western Art Show. It was a fun show with lots of things going on. I traveled with Sean Ferraro-Perry and we had a hootin' good time. I participated in the Quick Draw where I had one hour to complete a painting. Then, they auctioned it off. It was a fun challenge.

Historic Ritzville Days Western Art Show

Howdy,

I am getting ready for another art show, this time in Ritzville, WA. This will be my first time there, so I'm not sure just what to expect, but looking forward to a good time. If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello.

All Business

The photo reference for this painting was taken at one of this year's brandings. This cowboy is a well practiced roper and was all business that day. I am thinking of doing a series of 12 5"x5" paintings like this one of cowboys/girls, cows, horses, dogs, and general ranch life. They will sell for $75 unframed. Here's your chance to own one or more of my original paintings for the price of a print. Please let me know if this might be something you would be interested in.

Third Crossing

 

I almost always paint from either my husband's photos or my own photos, with few exceptions. The photo reference for the Third Crossing was a from Double Rafter Cattle Drives in Ranchester, Wyoming, www.doublerafter.com. Of course, I obtained permission to use the photo.


According to Dana at Double Rafter, the Third Crossing is where the mail route crossed the Little Horn River for the third time when delivering mail to the gold miners at Bald Mountain Gold City around the turn of the century.  Getting cattle through Third Crossing is still a challenge today.

Scouts Come to Learn

Did we ever have a fun afternoon painting this watercolor. These four boys are from a local Scout troop and together they painted this with a little help from me. They learned about saving white, using salt, sponging, making clouds, making texture with saran wrap, and creating depth. We spent about an hour, but could have easily spent another hour fine tuning it. I think they did a great job and they were very polite and fun to teach.

Student Work

 

It's been awhile, but we had the holidays to get through. This is work by one of my students, Jim. This is his first seascape. As you can see, he tones his canvas with yellow ochre and has laid in much of his darks. I am very pleased with this one, so far, and have great expectations of the finished work.

 

I have had several people ask for art lessons online and have the ability to produce a video. I would be interested in some feedback from some of you who might be interested in something like this. I was thinking of basic drawing in perhaps eight sessions. I can't stress enough how important I think the basics are. It's like learning the scale in music--so critical.

 

I have watched tv shows where the artist is simply demonstrating and it's very difficult to keep up if you are trying to draw along. I can enlist a student or two in my area who could participate in order to allow some time for the student to work after my demonstration. I'm thinking of a simple download. I'd like to know what you would expect to pay for the entire series and if you'd like the format to include the student or whether you'd prefer just my demonstration. I could also include some written materials you would be able to print out for future reference.

 

Feedback from artists would also be appreciated.
