Wes and I are very excited that our touring exhibition Exquisite Miniatures is currently at the beautiful Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve near Bartlesville, Oklahoma!  We had the pleasure of showing our work there back in May of 2011, along with several fellow artists.  Our weekend spent at the museum back then was a truly delightful one, as it offers so much to see and do, and is run by a very friendly staff! So if you’ve ever thought of visiting this gem, now is certainly the time to go, as you can see over fifty of our miniature paintings available for purchase, and displayed alongside beautiful western, wildlife paintings and sculptures.  You can read more about our adventure-filled  weekend here . . . Woolaroc weekend.

Here are a few photos featuring our Exquisite Miniatures exhibition and a portion of the museum’s lovely interior (courtesy of the Woolaroc)

Over fifty miniature paintings, including self portraits by each of us, as well as two from our Visiting the Masterpieces series, are currently featured in this unprecedented and history in the making national traveling museum exhibition encompassing twenty-five venues thus far!

We were delighted and honored to be commissioned by the Woolaroc several years ago to paint both Presidents Bush and Obama for their collection, which is displayed in a lovely wood cabinet at the museum.

I finished my miniature painting this past week of an absolutely adorable calf and it’s Longhorn mother.  I had captured this amazingly tender moment in a photo, while recently visiting Texas during the TexArt workshop.  Early one morning, myself along with 3 other ladies, drove a half an hour to a certain pasture, with hopes of seeing and photographing the resident herd of Longhorns.  We were thrilled and delighted when the entire herd walked over to us within minutes of us pulling up to the wooden fence!  I got numerous wonderful photos, but this one in particular instantly captured my heart, and I knew I had to paint it first!!!
