Stampede Art Show

The Eleventh Annual Stampede Art Show had its grand opening yesterday! Many of the artists were there, and there were a host of buyers eagerly viewing and complimenting the works of art. The show is in a new building, and the set up was much better than it had been. They captured the flair of the west beautifully. There was a band, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and a wonderful meal. The quick draw artists created some wonderful spontaneous paintings for the auction. The proceeds benefit the Stampede Foundation Scholarship Fund.

As for me, I didn't sell the painting "Yellow Earrings," but my little "Sunday in Sage" did sell. I am delighted as this is my first sale at this show. Hopefully I can build on this next year. First I have to be invited back.

But even better, was being back in touch with artist friends who I admire and don't see or am in touch with enough.

Congratulations on your sell! "Sunday in Sage" is a wonderful painting. I have no doubts that you will be invited back and this sounds like a great show to participate in.

Love "Sunday in Sage". I liked your "Yellow Earrings" painting too.

Duene ... Thank you for your comment on "Sunday in Sage." I have a "matching" piece of a bull buffalo. Would have been nice if the buyer would have bought the "set," but I'm happy to have the sale!

"Yellow Earrings" was actually inspired by a photo Lynn Thomas took and titled "Yellow Earrings." It gave me such a good laugh, I asked if I could use her title.

Vicki ... Thank you, thank you! I got the pictures for the piece while driving up to Pinedale, Wyoming many years ago. Women's Artists of the West had a show that year at PaJo's Gallery. Long, long time ago :)
