Stampede Western Art Auction & "Art Church" at Bluerock Gallery!

"WIP - "Chaps On A Break", 18x24, oil on panel - Stampede Western Art Auction 
Teacup #10 & Sun-Kissed Frolic at Bluerock Gallery, Black Diamond, AB

 "Sun-Kissed Frolic", oil on linen, 12x12, at Bluerock Gallery, Black Diamond, AB

"Chaps On A Break", oil on panel, 18x24: Meet Rob Erickson, along with his trusty companion horse and dog, High-Country and Tikki. I met Rob, cowboy and outfitter, after he was ending a long day of herding cattle. Rob was kind enough to allow me to paint him and his companions several times since our meeting. Even one of his cows posed for me! 

The finishing touches will go on this painting at the Calgary Stampede Western Art Auction, Thursday, July 13th, 2017,  after which it will be auctioned live.  I'll be participating in "Artists in Action". Your bid on this painting, (if you fancy it) will support the Grade 12 Western Art Scholarship.
