Hay Bales for Ann Rogers

I found an old image of hay bales that I loved to paint and decided to do them for Ann. The lush fields and rolling hills really attracted my eye. This was so much fun to paint that I think I'll be doing a large version soon. This whole moleskine adventure has been fun and has taken me out of my comfort zone and forced me to grow! Thanks everyone!

"Brown Lab" by Ann Rogers

oil on moleskin paper

Have had the pleasure of meeting Sharon Hodges through this Texas Moleskin project and have painted this brown lab for her book. Figured that if Sharon's blog profile photo included her dog, then this pet must be an important part of her life. 

Thanks to everyone who's been involved in the Texas Moleskin Round-Up, as well as the followers who have continued to check in on us. Believe this is my last entry, so we should all be getting our original books back before too much longer. What a treat it'll be to see the completed books.

For Carol Morgan's book with the theme of Sides, I painted a woman tending her garden outside. Jean, this will be mailed to you shortly and then I will paint in my final book, which happens to be yours. I'm stumped on what to paint in your book, but my goal is to return it to you before the end of the year.
