Inky II

"Inky II" (pastel, 8x8 inches) sold

A request from a client who saw my print of Inky at the Main Street Fort Worth Arts Festival last month, but preferred an original to a print. I've actually painted this sweet black lamb three times now. Some images bear repeating.

"Cookie" (pastel, 12x12 inches) $460 unframed for a limited time, or $550 framed

This sweet calf put me in mind of my bakery titles, but I had already used Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Ginger, Chocolat, Vanilla, Sorbet, Sundae, Basil, Rhubarb, and several kinds of peppers. Turns out I've already used "Cookie" as well, but the first Cookie was a 5x7 from 2013, so I figured it was time for another.

This Cookie was my demo at the Johnson County Art Guild's meeting last week, just before my workshop on the weekend. I got about halfway through it during the demo, and finished today in the studio.

Here are the few progress shots I got:

"Ivan" (pastel, 7x5 inches) click here to bid or buy

This was another from my triple-demo during last weekend's workshop. The triple demo is when I work on three under-paintings simultaneously to show how I work it when I'm in my studio, then in the next demo I pastel all three paintings in a row with no interruptions. I didn't get photos from this workshop, but I have a similar demo posted here from which you can get the general idea.

"Eachann" (pastel, 6x4 inches) click here to bid or buy

I had a great workshop last weekend in Cleburne, TX, organized by the Johnson County Art Guild, a talented and gracious group of artists.

Eachann was one of my triple-demo. Though this colt is Arabian, his name has Gaelic roots and means brown horse.

My talented weekend group in Cleburne!
