Sweet Dreams

"Sweet Dreams"  (pastel, 8x8 inches) framed, $375

The Bayou City Art Festival was another great success. Not surprising with the absolutely perfect weather!

Here's one that I'm very surprised didn't sell. It's so fresh, I hadn't even had a chance to post it. Since these sweet dreaming piglets are already framed, the retail price is $375. If it doesn't sell between now and mid-May, it will be included in my show "Beauty of the Beast" at the Rockport Center for the Arts, Rockport TX, May 14 - June 13, 2015. I'll have all circles and squares there.

Here are some progress shots:

The Better to Hear You With, My Dear!

"The Better to Hear You With, My Dear!"  (pastel, 16x16 inches)  $990 Available at The Gallery at Round Top

Well, it's almost 2am and I'm finally getting this blogged! This is the one I wanted to post today and turns out it's the only image I forgot to upload to dropbox for the weekend. So this is the photo off my camera, cropped and brightened with a newly-downloaded Gimpshop, and that took so long, to heck with the progress shots. Sorry (not really).

I've been up since 6am (Thursday), had a hair appt, took another frame to my framer, stopped at the health store, shipped some art to a client Fedex, sewed a large padded bag for my 36x36 painting, resized and uploaded 6 small paintings and progress shots to dropbox (but not this one! ha!), loaded the truck, picked up the last 2 paintings from my framer, drove to Houston, checked in and set up in Memorial Park (canopy, walls, lights, large paintings hung) Thank goodness the fest doesn't open til Noon tomorrow. But I still need to be there by 10 to finish setting up and hanging the small stuff.

So hope all you south-Texans and visitors can come by the Bayou City Art Festival this weekend, March 27-29, and see all the wonderful art spread around Picnic Drive in Memorial Park! Find me in booth #3!

(Updated 4/10/15 -- progress shots!)
This dear deer survived the BCAF without finding a buyer, so she'll be part of my show Beauty of the Beast at the Rockport Art Center, May 14 - June 13, 2015...

Muzzle Nuzzle

"Muzzle Nuzzle"  (pastel, 32x32 inches)  $4000

This makes the third large painting that these two young Herefords have been the stars of. First was "Brotherly Love", then there was "Nibbling Sibling". I'm going to have a hard time finding a title to the next one, assuming I can scrounge another composition out of the few photos that I caught.

Muzzle Nuzzle will be with me at the Bayou City Art Festival in Memorial Park, Houson TX. Find this and all my newest available work in booth #3 this weekend March 27-29, 2015!

"Brotherly Love" (pastel, 22x28) 2013, sold

"Nibbling Sibling" (pastel, 22x28) 2014, sold

 Here are few of the progress shots for Muzzle Nuzzle..

Ivy (aka: Iris)

"Ivy"  (pastel, 6x6 inches) click here to bid

You guessed it, Ivy is another view of the Real Iris. But, different painting, different title...

I had a very productive weekend! But I now have a framing dilemma for my abundance of new 6x6's. I have more paintings than frames that size! So, good for you, I have to choose about 8 or 9 of them to frame and bring with me to the Bayou City Art Festival in Houston this weekend, and let the rest of them stay unframed and on auction at DailyPaintworks. I've decided to let Ivy join the DPW crowd!

Stay tuned the next two days for my latest large works (yes, more!); the 32x32 Herefords and the 16x16 deer (hopefully will have titles before I have to post them!)

Here are some Ivy progress shots (Thank you to Frances of the Garden Gallery for the great reference shot!)
