Changing horses in midstream....

When I first started this blog, I had planned to do more artwork promotion here, but instead I have balked at doing much of that {to spare you}. Since I need to expand my artwork and jewelry exposure, I have decided to create a new Wildhorsemoon art blog. That way, should you ever visit there, you will know what to expect, all art, all the time. Because of this new venture, I have also decided to end my Cowgirl Style blog, as there will just be no time for it.

Now something you might be more interested in...... I am re-doing the cowgirl necklace giveaway. I never could reach Paige, and tried several ways, plus gave ample time for her to check the post that she had won. So leave a comment here on this post if you want to enter, and make sure I can contact you. If you have a blog, I can find you. If you prefer to keep contact private, email me at

Random musings

When I walked outside this morning, I saw something beautiful.{ No not the yucca plants} Two vultures circling right over my neighbors house, it made me feel hopeful.....I took it as a good omen.

The above is a photo of my beautiful yucca plants that bloomed last year, then one promptly died. Nothing changed, they were a picture of health. I must have looked at the one too hard. Note to self: Ignore the yucca plants.

The following is based on an actual event. The names have not been changed to protect the innocent, as the innocent were not involved. Only because they can't get through the fence.

I hear the dogs are barking, I know what its about,
Tessa's in the pasture again,
She knows she supposed to stay out.

What is she doing now? A question I'm often asking,
Oh, I say as I see her,
It appears she multi-tasking......

The day I brought her home, my reason must have headed south,
There she is chasing my mare, with a turtle in her mouth.

The turtle is fine.

Midnight Flight

Hello everyone! I just finished this fun diving horse and rider painting. I'm going to be doing more of these folk art type works, because they are so fun and lighthearted. Just thought I would share it with you, as I hope it will make you smile !

As close as I will get to the rich and famous

This is as close as I will get to the "rich and famous." Country music singer Toby Keith has a huge home here, so I thought I would give you a drive by view. You can find a view of the house on google. Always very patriotic, and a big supporter of our troops, there is always a large american flag flying there.

Just a few things....

I've been getting some studio time in and here is my latest painting titled "MesteƱo, " If the stars align just right, prints will be available soon. I've been working on jewelry for a big show I have coming up, so if you don't find what you are looking for on my website, feel free to ask to see some show pieces, otherwise you won't see them !

I also need to thank Trendy Bindi's for a "lovely" blog award. This is always appreciated. I am supposed to bestow this on other bloggers but I think I'll give them a rest this go'round. Please visit her charming blog, I think you will enjoy it!

Let freedom ring !

"Happy 4th to everyone !

Isn't this the neatest vintage photo ! My friend Linne in California owns this one, and I have permission to use it on my jewelry. If you have ever seen the "Cowgirls of the Old West" calendar that comes out every year, some of her photos are usually in it. She has a marvelous collection.
