Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you're surrounded with loved ones and filled with warm feelings of gratitude. I have much to be thankful for every day.

Welcome to Sonja Caywood Fine Art. Winter has finally arrived (again-as we had a big snow storm in early September) and is likely here to stay. This fills me with hope for days in the studio as my fall list of shows, an art fair, a studio tour and receptions slows in mid-December. I'm looking forward to my own little "snow days."
We had the biggest & best of our annual Art Loop Studio Tours last week, and I give a huge shout out to all who came out and bought original art. Your business makes it possible for artists to follow their dreams. My darling "Dixie Dreaming" above, sold, and I nearly cried. Luckily, her twin giclee' is hanging in my studio. Her dreamy gaze makes me smile. PS: Look for this ad in the January Southwest Art Magazine, along with a write-up on "Hereford Heifer" being a finalist in the Artist's Magazine's Annual Art Competition.
Last week I got word that "Sadie of the Evening Sun" and two others of my works were juried into the 2015 Governor's Capitol Art Exhibition, but alas, she sends her regrets, as she sold during my opening reception for "Ranching Roots: The Art of Sonja Caywood" at Rimrock Art & Frame on November 1st.

I'm excited to share that the "Hereford Heifer" painting, which showed in Dana Gallery's prestigious "Icons of the West" this summer, was a finalist in the Artist Magazine's Annual Art Competition; watch for her in the January edition of Southwest Art magazine. This painting is also juried into the Governor's Capitol Art Exhibition for early 2015. Along with Rimrock Art & Frame, in Billings, MT, the Tracy Miller Gallery represents me & shows my work in Manitou Springs, CO.
It was so exciting when the WY Stock Growers' Assoc. asked to use this painting as the cover for their Summer 2014 edition.

My heartfelt thanks to those of you who've made purchases & commissions; your support has blessed my family and encouraged me more than you know. My most sincere thanks to the Lord for allowing me to make a living following my life-time dreams. I hope I never lose the feeling of elation and gratitude when someone wants to hang my art on their wall.
Please contact me with any questions, and have a beautiful day.
