Western Art by my friend, Sandy Rogers

Original watercolor painting by Sandy Rogers

Every once in a while I come across an artist's work that I think is quite stunning. Such was the case last fall when I was in an art show and met Sandy Rogers. We had arrived at the facility where the show was to be held at about the same time in the morning. I pulled my 3 small canvasses from my Jeep and carried them into the building. Sandy, however, was unpacking stuff off the top of her truck - serious BIG stuff! I offered to help, and was soon on the other side of large sheets of lattice which we carried into the building and set up.

Sandy's husband had built her a display centre of 3 sheets of lattice (connected with bolts)  which could hang about 12 of her gorgeous large watercolors - all in a western theme. Boots, butts, ropes, lassos, horses, wood, spurs - anything you can think of that would be at a rodeo was beautifully painted into the pictures. Even little boys watching their heroes riding horses in the competitions!

As you can see from these pictures of her work, Sandy is a really wonderful artist. She has just placed her work online for purchase of originals and prints. I love the one below!

You can find Sandy's work here. I hope you will visit her site and enjoy her paintings. If you want to contact her to commission or ask about a piece, you can reach her at rogers_sandy@hotmail.comI wish her much success as she ventures out into the world of online galleries!
