Cows and Roses

Finally feeling better after a nasty, nasty cold so my easel is showing it.

This cow is from Panama.  My cousin took the photo and I pleaded with her to paint it.  I've wanted to paint a cow for awhile so here we go.

First go around with paint...let dry...

Second go around and I am LOVING it.   Next week background.

So I had to let Mrs. Cow dry and started this one.  I took the photo with my phone at a Valentine's dinner dance Friday night.  It turned out awesome and even my instructor was amazed. 

Now roses, they are a different kind of beast to paint but I am game to tackle them.  Ross (my instructor), when I asked where to start (after sketching it on the canvas) offered, "THE ROSES." Yeah, right, so off we go...
Next week more table, background, stems and glass.

What's Happening

Lots of stuff has happened in the past couple of months in my art life:  

I will be in the Southeast Oklahoma Fine Arts (SOFA) juried show with three paintings.

Acceptance into a local organization called Tulsa Artists Guild.  It was a scary process but I am a member now along with my friends, Linda Dunbar and Charlotte Lough.  

Piece in the Art Deco show through Alpha Rho Tau at the Art Deco Museum December-January.

I've also finished several pieces lately:

"A Pitcher of a Rose"
