Giddy-Up with Old Gringo Boots

Old Gringo Double D Ranch Boots

10" x 10" oil with palette knives on Ampersand Encausticbord

Available at Art Gallery at Patriot Place, Foxborough

The second painting of a pair of boots inspired by the beautiful collection from Christy Soloman at bootitude.net.

I found that I seem to be drawn to the Old Gringo boots in her collection. These especially look like ones I would wear. They also kind of reminded me of a boot I made for a floral show a few years ago. I called it Bootanical.

Giddy-up.

These boots are made for painting

Swift's (Liberty) Boots

10" x 10"

Oil with palette knives on Ampersand Encausticbord

I first discovered the beautiful and unique vintage boot collection of Christy Soloman at the Brimfield Antique Flea Market a few years ago. Since then I've followed her on Instagram @bootitude. I am constantly in awe every time she posts a new pair and I hope someday to own the perfect pair for myself. In the meantime, I decided to paint a few of my favorites. These boots by Liberty were the same style as those worn my the one and only Taylor Swift. Sweet.

Christmas pet portrait commissions: Meet Tootsie and Daisy

Loren asked me to paint these two cuties as a Christmas gift for her kids. So how could I say no?

I had previously painted 6" x 6" portraits of her two goldens a few years ago (click here to see Nala and Sophie). She had them enlarged on to 48" by 48" canvas to fill these walls in her beautiful home. She sent me this photo of them installed. Amazing.
