AB recently began working with a new model who happens to be the eldest daughter of her main model, the red-haired girl. It's an exciting time for us since this youngster proved her mettle and worked through a fabulous first-time solo model session. And we're excited to unveil AB's new painting of her called There'll Be Bluebirds.

Of course, we're preparing this and others for our fall tour. But if this new piece interests you, you should contact us as soon as possible. We'll be framing it soon, so it'll be ready for immediate delivery or for our first show!

There'll Be Bluebirds is available now in a limited edition print reproduction. Printed on 15.5 x 9 inch paper with the image size the same size as the original painting. Price is $54 and $10 shipping for continental USA orders. International shipping is available, but costs more. All credit and debit cards accepted. Please call Barrie at (307) 864-2697 from 8:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Mountain Standard Time to order.

Here's another painting we've just added to the black cloak series featuring AB's main model standing with a tiger while a man sits caged in the distance.

Crazy as it may seem, we did two summer shows recently: one at Salina, Kansas (featured below in the blog) and another at Casper, Wyoming. We don't normally show in summer since both of us don't care for the HOT months, but the exception ruled this time. We're happy that we went to Salina, anyway. Casper was 100 plus degrees with record breaking highs temps. No fun, indeed.
