Another home

Yesterday my hubby and I were invited to cowboy artist John Hill's home for some homemade chili and some cowboy singing. Now you need to know that he is multi-talented and single so his home is filled with the things he loves.....saddles on stands, guitars on stands and paintings. There is no decor theme and only one couch for a seating arrangement somewhere in a back room but there were paintings everywhere....walls, lined up in the hallway and every nook and cranny. Relaxed and casual would best describe it..........a wonderful time and the chili was mmmm good and you haven't lived until you have heard a group of old men singing their favorite old western songs:)

This is one of his more famous paintings done for Parada del Sol in 2003.

I am convinced that variety is the spice of life:)
Check out his web site for a gallery of all his other works

Wow, Sounds like a really fun evening. I would have loved to been there listening to them play and sing. His art work is great and later when I have more time I will check out the site provided.

Most everything in this house is from the past also. Thomas only had 2 girls, the other brothers no children so it is an eclectic mix of then and now. My tea pots and decoys show how my collections are very different. But if you came for a visit you would feel at home and wish to stay awhile.

Love the color you painted the wall. Do you ever sit on that bench and drink morning coffee and watch the world come alive?

Great paintings, such life and movement and urgency! It must have been fun to visit such an interesting home.
