Coors Western Art Show

Here are two new pieces that are being shown at the Coors Western Art Show and Sale during the National Western Stock Show.

The first one is Buck Brannaman's horse Arc. I have drawn this horse a few times, the last one was my print called "End of the Day' The reference photo I worked from is also from that same day, but earlier. I called it "Working" but maybe it should have been called "Earlier in the Day". Doubt many people would have got it though, since that print is sold out. I really like this drawing. The background was fun to do, a couple of cows, but also I filled in the sky part in order to really show off the the sunlight on his mane.

The second one is called "Cattin" because that is the name of the horse and is owned by Doug and Melinda Ballard. Cattin is a flea bitten grey, but in the interest of time, I decided not to draw the flea bite parts. I have been meaning to do a hackamore piece for awhile.

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is recovering from the holidays! It was low-key here, had to finish a drawing and my brother had deadlines at his job, so he had to cancel his visit. I am looking forward to going to Scottsdale for the Celebration of Fine Art in a couple of weeks. I am going to be posting more information about that soon and sending out an email detailing the schedule and things like that. It will be weird drawing in front of people, but its probably good to get out of my "comfort zone" a little and it will be a nice chance to finally meet clients that I have only met over the phone.

I just finished a new drawing last night and thought I would post it for all to see. There are a few glares from my lighting. This horse is named Gabe, he is a mustang and owned by Brenda Valetta (hope I spelled that right) The original is being sent to Altermann Galleries March auction. I'm not sure of a title yet, I may just call it "Gabe" for lack of anything creative. I love drawing big, wild manes, so this one was fun. http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
