Yard Art, Acrylic Paintings and Texas Pasture, Pastel Painting

**Baseball Note added below 3/15/2007
Such a busy day. More rain and a baseball game. I'm almost ready for my show. I sealed/varnished the Yard Art paintings today. They are small acrylic paintings on wrapped canvas, 6 x 6 inches each. This is a snapshot just to show them, I will post a photo of each painting. This is art from my yard .. pine cones and oak leaves. :)

This painting is Texas Pasture, a 5 x 7 pastel. It is framed in a jewelry or knick-knack box. Looks nice. Something different at least for my show.

I ordered a few things from my cafepress store and have a few prints on hand as well. I don't usually do prints, but have a few photo prints just in case someone wants a recuerdo or souvenir. I will have a door prize. Probably a tote bag from cafepress. We shall see.

I will try to post tomorrow night (well tonight, it is after midnight) with more info about my show and getting ready.

Note about the baseball game, Longhorns beat Winthrop from North Carolina , 7 - 1. Read about it here.

**Note about the baseball game, too. Joanna is back and posting again, you can read here. I forgot to mention that Nick Peoples made a spectacular catch. A high fly way out in center field. Nick had his eye on it and was running forward some distance and slipped and fell to his knees, he kept his eye on the ball, got up and caught it. Wow! Jordan Danks made a great running catch over his shoulder almost to the fence. Great playing yesterday. The next win will give coach Augie Garrido win number 1600. Another wow!

I like the looks of those two "wrapped canvas" paintings!

Thank you. It was a first for me. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Fun to do, I hope to try a couple of the cliff dwellings and do it somewhat like a dyptich on larger canvases.
