Believe me I know about vet bills. I spent a small fortune these past few months. A few events I attended as a vendor helped pay them.

I think $25 is a good price. Do you sell the original or have prints made?

I sell rustic log signs for $25 to $35 each depending on how much time is spent on them. My fine art doesn't sell as well because the pricing is higher. But you never know who will stop at my booth. I make out OK at local events, art and craft shows.

I've entered a few juried shows, and got a little angry at the choosing of the winners. So from now on, I'm not entering any more. I strongly dissagreed with the judges choice. There were some fantastic pieces (other than the ones choosen) that I felt didn't get the recogition deservered.

The judges have their own personal opinions and favorities and I think they let that get in the way of properly judging good art.

That's just my feelings about "Juried" art shows.

I'm glad you placed at the county fair, I thought about entering some work into our fair it last summer. Maybe next year I'll enter some work, and set up a booth there.


It's always a good day when you wake up, don't sweat the small stuff.

Thank you! My graphite and colored pencil drawings are done on bristol paper which is nice and smooth. I paint on stretched canvas, but don't know enough about the different kinds of canvases, so I usually just buy whatever is available at the art supply or craft store. I recently bought a "supposedly" smoother canvas made specifically for portraits, but didn't see much of a difference from what I had been painting on.

Here is another recent graphite drawing.

I LOVE your sketches! It's so refreshing to see and equine artist who knows the facial musculo-skeletal form of the head.

Keep up the good work, and I hope you get some sales.
