Some new work

Well, I'm at it again with the little cows!

This one, "Bailey," (pastel 7x5) will be included in the "Art Heist" (a new twist on the silent aution) during the Bayou City Art Festival October 10-11, 2009 in Houston, TX. More info on the Art Heist HERE!

Here are three more 7x5 little cows I completed this week...



and "Banjo"

These will be in Houston with me for the Bayou City Art Fest.

Newest Addition to Cow Series, "Secrets"

Here it is... done and scanned and ready to take to my printer for the giclee adjustments.

"Secrets" pastel, 24x24 inches

Tomorrow I give a demo for the Art Guild of Central Texas in Waco, and have prepared a 32x32 board for my next cow painting. I'll post the progress!

New (old) Cows in Progress

Well, I've been wondering it myself... Is my (larger) cow series trickling to a halt? My artist's eye has caught the small figurative/themed portrait bug and is full of several new ideas for more 8x6 paintings like "The Note" and "Renaissance Youth".
However! -- Here lies a lonely old demo project recently unearthed, and as part of my preparation for another upcoming demo (Art Guild of Central Texas, Sep 13) I've commanded myself to FINISH this one! (It's already 5 months old.)

Setting it up in my workspace and letting it settle in again has worked up just enough creative flow to get me excited about the NEXT demo piece (a 32x32 with an adult and a calf... more on that later) and even better - this one's title came to me in a flash last night, "Secrets." Perfect, I think. It should flow better now.

Ok that's my self-pep-talk -- now to work!
