Happy Birthday to artist, sculpture and writer Frederic Remington. His amazing work is familiar to us all. Read more about him here.
While we were painting the Barn with Flag a few months ago at Paint Parties (see those here and here) I started working on this one as well. I finally had some time at Open Studio yesterday to wrap it up.
I like the image of old barns with our flag hanging proudly.
All-American Barn, acrylic, 9″x12″, available for sale.
But she did a great job!
On my final day of vacation we went to the Natural History Museum. I was pleasantly surprised by all the art that I saw there. Of course, there was loads of interesting animals and artifacts but the backdrops of many of the displays included wonderful art. Here are just a small sampling of the fabulous things that we saw on Monday.
The second Famous Painters Paint Party last night had us painting Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. And boy did they turn out GREAT! We all had such a fun time and these ladies went home with fabulous paintings. The next Famous Painter Party is October 27th. We’ll announce the painting we will do in a few days.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
(Tomorrow I will share more photos from the wonderful museums I visited while on vacation. So much good stuff to share.)
An amazing exhibition of John Singer Sargeant ‘s portraits of friends, other artists, and family. Many that I had not seen as they are in private collections. Here are two nice and unusual ones.
