So how was your Monday? Did you have a good day at work? Looking at this old pencil by Bill Owen, I’m thinking this cowboy was having a good day, packin’ salt around to the different pastures, checking water, keeping an eye out for problems . . . . . . enjoying the beautiful weather as he went along with his tasks. Thankful for everything that God had provided for him. As we get closer to Thanksgiving Day, I hope we all take time to be thankful for the many blessings we have.
“Packin’ Salt” by Bill Owen is a limited edition print, 22″H X 15″W, with a price of $85.
So many favorites going to new homes today! That includes this beautiful pencil work by Brenda Murphy, “At Ease” in a gorgeous frame by Jeff Johnson at Galerie Accents Framing in Las Cruces. More unframed, limited edition giclee prints are available. Image size is 8.5″H X 12.75″W, and the price is $100.
Last day of the World Championship Ranch Rodeo here in Amarillo! The trade show is about to open this morning, at 11 am. Brian Asher’s work is always popular in this venue, and 2 or 3 of these “Bringing up the Rear” prints are going to new homes, along with several other of his prints. This is a giclee print on paper, 19.5″H X 14″, with a price of $150.
Safe travels, everyone!
So psyched to be heading to Amarillo in a few days for the World Championship Ranch Rodeo! I’ve been busy getting some great artwork put together for the show, both framed and unframed, so there will be plenty for you to check out, including this one that about sums it all up. The ranch rodeo finals about all about the cowboys doing what they do most every day; it’s their way of life. Bill Owen’s “His Way of Life” looks awesome in a simple rustic black frame.
The trade show is open 1-8 pm on Thursday, 9 am-8 pm on Friday and Saturday, and 11 am-6 pm on Sunday, at the Civic Center in Amarillo.
How many of you have been to the Farmers Market in Seattle? I was there yesterday, and it’s a great place to visit, but definitely “Close Quarters.” Barely room to shuffle along as we looked at all of the fish markets, vegetable stands, and beautiful flower stands. Very fun place to check out!
“Close Quarters” by Karmel Timmons is a limited edition print, 12″H X 19″W, and $80.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
This is another very popular print by Mary Ross Buchholz that also sold at the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium last weekend. “Drinking Buddies” ALWAYS gets a lot of attention in the booth, because who doesn’t love their dogs? Today’s post is in honor of our good ol’ corgi dog, Jody, that we lost yesterday, at the old age of 14 years. She had some health issues, so we treasured every extra day that we had with her; she put many a smile on my face, and I always loved seeing her special smile.
“Drinking Buddies” is a limited edition print, 16″ X 16″, with a price of $150. I’ll have some, framed and unframed, at my next show, the World Championship Ranch Rodeo, in Amarillo next month, but I’d be glad to ship one out anytime.
The day has gotten off to a great start, even before the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium officially opened! Some customers stopped by early to make their purchases before they head home, and this print, “Midday Change” by Mary Ross Buchholz, is headed to a new home. This gorgeous print has been getting so much attention in the booth; people have been in awe of the realism in this beautiful artwork.
Who’s got the latest Western Horseman magazine? Did you see the article on New Mexico artist, Dino Cornay? Unfortunately, I’m on the road and haven’t been able to get a copy of it yet, but I’m dying to see it. Let me know what you think!
“Window to the Soul” is one of Dino’s latest works. This 12″H X 12.75″W print is $100. I’ve got this beautiful framed piece hanging in the booth at the Junior National Hereford Expo this week.
I expect that there’s plenty of golfing going on during this Fourth of July weekend, and maybe a little “pasture pool” as well? I’ve never been much of a golfer myself, but I’d love the chance to get a little target practice in on those prairie dogs! Now THAT’S some good fun!
“Golf-Texas Style II” by Tom Greenwood is an open edition print, 22″H X 17″W, and the price is only $35. And if you give me a call by the end of the day on Monday, July 8, I’ll ship it for free. Phone number is 575-649-0636, or you can email me at email@example.com
OK, I think it’s “Time for a Drink”; it’s been a long day trying to catch up after being gone to Denver for several days. Time to take a little break, check the mail, get some dinner started, and get ready for a really early morning tomorrow. How’s YOUR Tuesday been?
This is a fantastic limited edition giclee print by Brian Asher. If you love horses, and if you appreciate what an artist can do with a pencil, then I’m sure you will enjoy seeing this one. The size is 13.25″H X 24.5″W, and the price is $150.
