Cowboy Boots Painting and Carousel Horse Painting ~ Holiday Joy ~ by Texas Daily Painter Nancy Standlee

 "Boot Scootin"
 40"x40" acrylic framed painting on 9 12x12 in. gallery wrapped canvases
Each canvas is painted by a different artist

What brings you joy during the holiday season? This is the question posed this morning from Creative Catalyst, one of my favorite places to order art DVD's. They have a catalog online where you can browse the catalog by artist, media, subject, and show books and supplies. Another good feature is being able to see a short clip from the video before ordering. 
Creative Catalyst produces a great variety of art DVD's, some of the best I've ever viewed. You have a chance to win a new DVD by Anne Bagby while making art during the holidays. Read the rules HERE on the CCP site.

Now back to the Joy question. A lot of Texans welcome a new pair of boots in their stocking or finding a gift certificate for first of the year shopping, or maybe a large colorful painting of several pairs of boots. 
Read more about this painting HERE by Canvas by Canvas, a collaborative group of artists I belong to.
"Ride a Painted Pony"
37" x 37" acrylic on 9 10" canvases framed
Each canvas is painted by a different artist

Joy is found on the face of a child when offered a ride on the merry-go-round anytime during the year. I belong to a group of 8 collaborative artists, Canvas by Canvas. We are friends first but we also own a business and meet to paint our own photos. Each one of the 8 members draws for the square they are assigned to paint. (Moans can be heard in a landscape project when the lower left square is drawn and it's all grass!)
This particular scene photo was taken at a local mall one morning early before the children arrived. We are offering it as a special holiday price. Click HERE for more information.

See my gallery at Daily Paintworks HERE. You can now make comments on the paintings. Look under each painting in the center and you will see a gray oval. Most have a zero but a few have numbers. The number goes up with each comment that was made about the painting and I invite you to make a comment about any of the artists that show in this gallery.

This was a special painting for many reasons, one being that The Gaylord requested that we paint it in a very large format for their Texas Artist Walk We were one of 12 artists in Texas selected for this honor.

The carousel horse is one of my favorite paintings from Canvas By Canvas and I'll bet some child would LOVE it. It would also be great for a children's hospital warad or a school. Brilliant colors!
