Check it out guys! The Out West Art Show put together a video for me for the upcoming show in March. I think it turned out rather fantastic. :) Have a look-see!
In other news, I'm just plugging away at making more art. I'm currently working on a large Friesian scratchboard as well as a commissioned horse oil painting. You can check out my Facebook art page to see all the work-in-progress photos if you're interested. (Link below.)

Haha, so yes, I've decided to join Instagram to try it out and see what happens. ;) If you guys want to follow me there as well, I would definitely love it! I'll be posting work-in-progress images as well as some other arty stuff. If you feel so inclined, you can follow me ShaleseSands (https://www.deviantart.com/shalesesands). :)
In other news, I'm working on a couple of commissions (I've been posting WIPs on my Facebook page of those) and have continued my big 16" X 20" scratchboard of a Friesian running on the beach. That one's going to take such a looong time, but it will be well worth it (hopefully!). I'm also working on preparing for the annual art festival in town here, whic
Yes, you read that right! In September of 2016, I will be going on an African Safari with a few artist friends! We will be going to Tanzania and exploring the country, seeing and photographing as much wildlife as we possibly can. I've been dreaming of doing something like this for a loooooooong time, so it's really hard to believe that it's not only possible, but going to actually happen! You guys can just about guess how much inspiration I'll come back with from this trip. The good thing is, I have a little over a year to prepare for it, but I'm sure it's going fly by.

Hey guys! It's been a while since I've posted a journal update, but I have been busy getting pieces ready for The Out West Art Show and Sale in Great Falls, Montana, which I just came back from yesterday. I had lots of fun, just like last year, and managed to sell 7 pieces! Not as much as last year, but the payout was about the same. These shows are always so invigorating and inspiring, so I can't wait to start making more for next year. ;) Here are some small thumbnails of the pieces that sold this week:
There was also a little 6" X 6" moose study that I sold, but I don't have it uploaded here. If you're curious as to how that one looks, yo
So happy, thrilled, and honored to have received a DD! Of all the pieces in my gallery, it is definitely the one I would have liked to get a DD, so I'm just stoked about that.
I also just wanted to say hi to all my new watchers. Thank you so much for your support (both old and new) and I hope you find a lot of fun stuff in my gallery to browse through. :) If any of you are interested in work-in-progress photos of this particular painting (or any others, for that matter), head on over to my Facebook art page (link at the bottom of this journal entry) and you can find them all there.
Once again, thank you for this!!
