Three fabulous shows.. Thank you Pagosa Art Lovers and all of you Wonderful Summer Visitors ..you all made it happen. We are so grateful for your support and attendance . I am starting to paint now and get ready for the big September Labor DayArt Fest that will be forthcoming at the Quality Inn. We would love to see all of you there, but know that for those of you that escape to Colorful Colorado for a vacation, it would be a long trek.. I am working on a Pagosa Rainbow Trout which is painted on natural colored Brazilian Agate. Should have it completed tomorrow and will be posting it shortly. I am expanding my line of prints of my original art work created on stone and will be pursuing some new projects including pencil drawings and some new and refreshing pen and ink sketches with colored washes. This will be my fall projects and should have a whole new line for the holiday shows in November.
This classic buckaroo of the Southwest was painted on Picture Jasper and I used a photo of one of our fearless mounted Sheriff’s Posse, with a little revision of uniform to chaps. The longhorn cow and calf I found out on Cat Creek Road a year ago when they still ran longhorns. They were fun to shoot with my camera and really are a reminder of the history of Pagosa Country. The print is matted and fits a 5″x7″ frame and I am using old barn wood frames made by Richard Sutherland of Pagosa Springs. What’s better than the Cowboy Way!
Home on the Range with the Buffalo of Wyoming was originally painted on Picture Jasper which has patterns of the mountains (like the Tetons) in the stone. I have 5×7″ prints, matted and ready to frame or framed in old barn wood. This was a painting I thoroughly enjoyed doing as it is reminiscent of our heritage of the old west and the pioneers that founded our country.
I will be posting art work on my store at www.etsy.com/shop/SylsWildlifeArt
Once again, thank you all for having three fantastic shows this summer…If you have any questions, or special requests for art work, let me know..look forward to writing to you again..
