Another Quick Pastel Cow Painting and Ready for the Concert ... Almost

I painted the other day.  Woohoo, two painting studies in two weeks.  Maybe I am ready to work again, I'm feeling good about it.

This cow is one of the cows that was on the farm in Kentucky where we stayed for Christy's wedding.  I painted quickly again.  Probably a little over an hour to accompany the Hour Cow.  It was fun to work with no expectations.

We have been getting ready for the Byrd and Street Concert on Sunday.  It is fun to entertain and more fun to have live music that is super and performed by such good friends.  We are combining the concert with an art show.  Seats are available book on-line on my website

Come on down!  There will be prints by Tommy Byrd and Kathy Street in my studio, too.

I have my art up in the living room, hallways and studio.  This is unusual.  Regularly we have work on the walls by other artists.

The Albuquerque Balloon Wall

The new cows.

Four including the new apple piece.
Some of the smaller paintings.
One Oak or Two, framed.
Veggies in the hall.
A few in my studio.
On my working shelves, the workshop paintings and other unframed work.

Odds and ends.  Regina's paintings that aren't framed yet and sketches, etc.

I really like the cows and they look great on the wall. I need to hangs some art work - you give me encouragement.

Jo Castillo said...

Regina, thank you so much! Thank you for the wine, too. We will save that for a special occasion. Maybe tonight we will open one to wind down. Ha.

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, you should have your work hanging someplace! Beautiful. We usually have artwork by other artists in our living room. Regina Burchett, Mike Henderson, Jeri Salter, Mike Etie, Mark Okelberry, Ginny Smith, David Castillo and Larry Castillo are usually there. We will be changing things around again, probably tomorrow. Today is for recuperating.
