More Wild, Wild West!

Here is another sketch in preparation for my horse paintings.  This is Faith.

I Live in the Wild, Wild West!

My friend has two rescue horses.  They've been through a lot of bad things, but now they have a wonderful home with a mom who loves them.  I'm going to paint them.  I've started doing some drawings.  This is Lady. 
11" x 14" 60 lb paper with Faber Castell graphite aquarelle (my magic pencils)

I think this is going to be fun!

Getting Ready for Christmas!

I haven't baked Norwegian butter cookies in 15 years.  My grandmother used to bake them every Christmas.  She was an amazing woman.  My mom bakes them almost every Christmas.  She is amazing, too.  Then there is Candy.  I guess I bake them every 15 years.  I intend to bake them again in 2032.  Why?  Because they are so much work!  I don't know how Grandma did it - she didn't even have a dishwasher.  Yikes!  Anyhow, they are the most delicious cookies ever!
