Masterworks -Standard Art Division

As mentioned in the previous post, I was fortunate to have two paintings juried into the Masterworks show down inAlbuquerque .   The show will run basically the month of April.  I will be delivering these two standard sized works, as well as my miniature hopefuls next weekend.
These are the two works selected for the show. Both are 9x12, oil on linen. Sorry for the photos, but these are the only pics I have right now.

Masterworks Miniatures.

So, it's time for Masterworks of New Mexico again.  It's a juried event down in  Albuquerque, a combination of three shows, actually - and hosted by three separate art associations.  More about the big show later. In addition to 'regular sized" art, they also have a juried miniature show.  
 These are three of my five entries.  I don't have a camera, so am using cell  phone pictures, which definitely has it's drawbacks. Color is off and I cannot seem to correct it.The size of these is 4x4 inches- about the length of a q-tip is a good way to think about it.   
It's a different process, working this small, and since I pretty much only do it for this show, seems I have to go through the learning curve every year all over again. Still, its a nice challenge, and I don't take it all too seriously.  I have two more in process, which I will post once they are all done. I hope the jury likes cowboys.  :-)
