Saddle Bronc Starting Lineup - pastel

(sold)12 x 24 inches, pastel on board.  I have been waiting to hear whether this made it into the 2015 Western Spirit Art Show and Sale here in Cheyenne this March at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Old West Musuem.  The jurors must have liked it, as it was accepted into the show.  I am always grateful to be included into this show.  It is fun and the quality of the work being shown is continually getting better and better.  There are many fantastic artists being represented and it is an honor to have my work hanging amongst theirs.

I will give more details on the 2015 Western Spirit Art Show and Sale as it gets nearer.  There is a link on the right sidebar of this blog to last years show.

Bowl of My Favorite Fruits - pastel

SOLD  8 x 10 inches on Canson Mie-tientes touch paper.
This was the first time using this paper and so far I'm not that impressed.  I will do a few more small pastels on this paper and see if I like it any better.

Even though I fought the paper, I like how the painting turned out.  I cant remember the last time I painted fruit with pastels, so it was a fun change of subject matter.
