Pink Cowboy Boots….
or should that be pink cow- girl boots?
After being in my new studio space now for a few months I finally am working on a ‘theme’ for Aug. First Friday! Hopefully I can pull it together. I’ve got barn siding frames, new paintings and some other accessories that will fit a western theme. Heck, I can even bring in hay bales! I am doing this with the hopes I can sell a bunch of paintings during Canton’s First Friday and then go out and buy me a new pair of cowboy boots! Fancy, colorful ones!
I’ve been feeling pretty western lately! A couple of my new rescue horses neck rein so I’ve been riding western and enjoying it! In fact I’ve already put in my birthday wish for next month for a new saddle.
This evening I rode Bling, our palomino, Splash, our appy and Rhythm the QH . So, so fun! We are getting past the ‘get everyone well’ stage of rescuing and are now well into the ‘lets get to know each other’ stage. So I am going with this cowgirl thing with all this riding and thinking I like it.
I’ve admired southwest style art for a long time but felt I was in the wrong location. I couldn’t really do that unless I lived out west. Well, the heck with waiting!! I am having fun with this and my favorite color palettes right now seem to work really well with this theme so I am going for it! A cowgirl blazes their own trails!
If you are local stop by the 2nd floor of 2nd April Art Galerie during Canton’s First Friday and see my new space. I usually do painting demos. People seem to like that. I am in studio 207. I’ve got a gallery space also that I share with a couple amazing artists- Terri Howard and Sarah Schumaker .
The theme for First Friday is Feelin’ Groovy! I am sure it will be every bit as fun as they all are! Thank you Arts In Stark for doing an amazing job!
