There was a lot of growth for me and for Western Rose Studios in 2018 and even more new things that will happen in 2019.
Usually I write this blog post right at the end of December/beginning of January, but this year things are moving a little more slowly. But first, I'm going to reflect on 2018. I decided to focus on a couple new adventures in Western Rose Studios, such as teaching watercolor classes, photographing less landscapes and more people and pets, and networking with other small businesses. I was also blessed with being the winner of the 2019 St. Paul Rodeo poster contest, creating special custom watercolors that were Christmas presents for others, and attending a couple new events.
Yesterday I traveled nearly 500 miles to capture once in a lifetime moments of sweet mama to be, Stevie, with her super sweet mare, Freckles.
Stevie is nearly at the end of her journey of meeting her little girl at 34 weeks. During our session, the little girl even gave a few kicks. Maybe she's ready to come out and meet Freckles? At least she was where it was warm and cozy, because it was a very blustery day!
Freckles was a champ when it came to the wind and dresses fluttering in the steady gusts. Stevie's daughter is one lucky girl to have Freckles show her the ropes of being a little cowgirl.
I hope you stay awhile. This is where I will talk about my paintings, processes, photography & adventures, post processing, social media, and more.
