TEXAS LADY by Texas Artist Dyan Newton

Texas Lady
12 x 12 Acrylic on Wrapped Canvas
This was fun and challenging painting this little lady in my palette of colors. 
Ben Konis (wonderful artist from Amarillo, Texas) always said "if the value is right, the color is right".  I never painted another tree trunk brown.

13 X 15 Pastel on Sanded Paper
This was a commission.  Her husband bought this for her for Valentine's Day.
When painting my animal portraits I usually use pastels.  I have painted my daughter's dog in acrylic, using my vibrant colors
