                       Old Dog ,Still learning New Tricks

It's been a busy time around  Jackson's Studio and I'm just now getting some computer time in .

Billy and I Had a wonderful Annual Open Studio Show last November. I had so much fun renewing my love of the pencil, I created several new images,that flew out the door the first day. That started an avalanche ,and after a few days rest when the show was over,I finally was able to take enventory.

Wow !19 paintings,2 sculptures and many small items,note cards tiles ,cups ,coasters and prints also found new homes.what a fabulous response .Thanks to all of you who came and shared that fun week-end with us.Gonna try for  later this year again.That is if I can get busy and create new work!

We will post the exact dates later.
As usual,there will be refreshments and lots of conversation.It is always so much fun seeing old friends ,and making new ones .Please keep it in mind .

Scammers Beware !!!

How sad that scammers have decided to focus on artists,or is that they have all along and I have just come in contact with one ?

The scammer in question e-mailed me and wanted to buy ,not one,but two paintings.Yay,great news for an artist !

After a couple of letters  (e-mail) back and forth,I began to feel uneasy,so I googled up the adress.Lo and behold ,it came up with over 200 names and adresses of known scammers,and guess what?My sweet lady buyer was on the list.I promptly called my son (a police officer ) and he advised me to call the local cops.Thay were so great.When this great check came ,the cop came and opened it .Well,goody goody ,it was for 1800.00 more than the price of the paintings.He promptly took the letter and proceeded to follow up on it . Boo hoo , scammer , sorry I messed up your quota for the day , or week , or whatever . So my advice to you other artists out there , if it sounds too good to be true , it probably is . And to you art scammers out there , I may be old , but I'm not stupid . Don't try again . I have the police officers number !!!!

Oh my goodness!I was just contacted by another scammer .Same theme ,different story .Do I really look that stupid (or hungry ???For some reason ,when i told him I only accept payment by credit card or paypal ,I never heard from him again !Oh well,guess I didn't sell those two paintings after all .

The Beginning and the Finish

Spring is here and finally time for work in the studio.

 I am excited about a new sculpture I Just finished.I am posting the beginning ,so you can see the stages a piece goes through .I start with a "dream" .Usuly from a story told to me by some of the old cowboy's I have known ,or sometimes from my own experiences .
This piece will have a rider,and other animals . Lots of action ,that is what you all look for in my work,and I hope I don't disapoint . This next posting shows the "cowpony"as he starts to develope.The feet and legs will be last as they get damaged so easily.When all elements are finished,it's off to the foundry in Oregon to be cast in bronze.
