Egg Nog and Art, Pastel Cows, Sketches

This Friday will be a great time to shop in downtown historic Bastrop, Texas.  There are many things going on including Girls' Night Out at Art Connections Gallery.  Should be lots of fun

I have pastel paintings at Art Connections, 908 Main Street, Bastrop, Texas  78602
512 581-1799

Hopefully this new painting, Tres Amigas, will be on display and for sale with my others.

Tres Amigas
Pastel on Pastelbord
7 x 5 inches  $125.00
framed in dark brown rough wooden frame

I love cow faces.  I chose the photo of these cows from the wetcanvas.com image library posted by canis_lupess.  Thanks, again, for a great photo. 

I have some new photos from Kentucky and maybe, just maybe, I will get some painted after the new year gets underway.

In the meantime I keep on sketching.  For Scavenger Hunt 431  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1394054

Three items from a closet
22 Clothes, jackets
23 Clothes hangars
24 Clothes Basket
Two spheres
25 and 26 wooden balls from a bag of wooden knobs and legs that Gene has 

These are with a Micron 05 in my large sketchbook.  Do you see?  I got 26 items done.  I have only done all 26 items on the Hunts a few times.  Woohoo!  It helps to put 3 items in one sketch.  Still fun to finish.  New Hunt tomorrow!!

I wish I were in Bastrop to do my shopping.

Bag Blog, sounds like my kind of shopping. The Pink Store in Las Palomas where we go to the dentist in Mexico serves free margaritas. I have bought lots of stuff there!!

One time we were shopping in San Antonio and drinking margaritas. I bought new high heels (back when I was a young teacher). The first time I wore them to work, they nearly killed my feet. As I hobbled to class, one of the lady principals asked me what was wrong. I told her, "Never buy shoes when you have been drinking margaritas. They feel great at the time, but not so great later."

Bag Blog, I shall endeavor to remember to not buy shoes when drinking margaritas.
