Oil Painters of America

The Making of a Cowboy, oil on canvas, 24 x 18

Oil painters of America has announced the paintings accepted into their Western Regional show. I've been told that only 90 paintings were accepted so I'm pleased that my painting, The Making of a Cowboy, was among those selected.

The exhibit and sale will take place at Mountain Trails Gallery in Jackson Hole, WY Oct 9- Nov 10.

This painting is one of my favorite paintings of a vintage toy from my collection and has won several awards.

Reference photo for Cats and Dog, detail

I really want to get started putting the paint on the canvas for a new Vintage Toy painting. It's taken me hours (days) to get the drawing done.

But first, I need to take advantage of the blooming sunflowers and photograph them. You never know when you might want to paint one.
