Welcome back Louisa, I was just thinking about you last evening and wondering how your husband is doing. Your cowboy hat is excellently done.

Thank you Mea, Steve, Val, Kathy and Patricia. I always feel so welcome and loved when I am on PB. Patricia my hubby is much better after a few light strokes, so much better that he helped me collect new seedlings for my veggie garden and assisted me all day long and that's why I decided to stop working at the end of October, just want to help out until after year end and THEN it's painting painting painting again. I cannot wait. Love you all.  :hug:

Happy to hear things are better for you and your husband.  I have been thinking of you few days ago.  So nice to see your cowboy's hat. 

Anyone interested in submitting their own cowboy/related topics subjects to the Stampeed competition in Canada?  The competition will soon open for 2017.  Here is the link, one can also rent a boot for sale, etc.

Louisa, I am so behind in reading and commenting on messages.  I am however, thrilled to hear that your husband is doing well. Praise the Lord and also very happy to hear that you will be painting more in the New Year. Great stuff.

Maria,

Great work on the cowboy hat drawing.  Nice texture on the wood grain.


Maybe just a few more darks in the hay bale to create more depth.

I think cowboy hats are so alluring.
