...Stockton Art League demo this evening...

It has been a LONG time since I demonstrated for a group. I am truly looking forward to my visit to the Stockton Art League tonight. They are an awesome group of art enthusiasts, and I feel a connection to them, even though I have only met them recently. How nice for me to be invited to share! 

We are going to talk about trees. LOTS of trees. Such a simple thing really, but very important to my art and what makes me tick. My goal is to share my respect and passion for my subject matter, inspire some to try, and sprinkle everything with fun!!

...aiming to inspire...

 "Relax, Cowboy"

It's time for Amador County fair entries again and I am entering five paintings this year. 
This cowboy is going :) My camera discovered him at last year's fair, ladies, I do not know him. 
It is a lot of fun to show in our local fair. I know many of the artists and enjoy seeing what everyone has entered. Our county has done such an excellent job of preserving that small country fair feeling.
Two of my most recent paintings "Sunlit Vines and "Jackson Butte" will not be in the fair this year. They have the honor of hanging in the 
Haggin Museum in Stockton for the National Show there. I will post more information about that soon.
I'm so excited to see that show!!

For now, I am working to finish three paintings before the fair. Yes, I can do that.

...feeling special ;)
