Boots ~ Arlington Vibe ~ Granbury Live Theater by Texas Daily Painter Nancy Standlee

"Nancy's Boots"
8" Acrylic on Canvas (sold)

This is my painting square for a recent Canvas by Canvas commission in the style of Southern Comfort. It has not been added to our CBC website yet. These are my red boots that are dusted off on special occasions and I've always enjoyed painting them. This next week will find me painting a boot section for a CBC California client.

Maybe I could wear these boots Friday afternoon at Grandbury Live. I belong to LGAA (Lake Granbury Art Association) and they promote a last Friday Gallery night. Friday, Aug. 27th, I am the featured artist that will be at Granbury Live from 5-8 with a paint - collage demonstration. I will have the Longhorn collage on display and will be working on a donkey and will have a journal on display. Stop by and say hello if you're in the neighborhood.

You can see and read more about the Longhorn on the Arlington Vibe page and read about an upcoming art workshop. LinkI met Billy at the All Girls show at the F6 Gallery in April when I was exhibiting. He interviews and writes about people around town and promotes Arlington art. Some of the topics he has covered are UTA faculty and students, Lamar High School, and individual artists. Thanks Billy for the interview. Comments are welcomed on the Vibe site.

Workshops: (teaching and taking)
I will be taking Donna Watson from the SWA group in October 20-22. I want to add more to my abstract painting style. Contact Carolyn Jehring if you'd like more information.
I will be teaching a 3 day art journaling workshop in November at the Upstairs Gallery. More on that to come. It will be the "Love Your Life" 3 day class where we will record some of our daily activities in a journal and you do not have to have an artist background, writing or drawing experience. I'll even let you draw and paint my boots.
