So-o-o Very Nashville

Ruffled-up Cowgirl is a 24x12 oil done from life by Shirley Fachilla.

Boots and really big cowboy hats are very, very Nashville, even for girls. This particular girl is part of the annual juried Women Painter’s of the Southeast show which this year takes place right here Tennessee. The show’s not quite in Nashville but is very, very near in Franklin, Tennessee.
The exhibit's hanging at Imagine Gallery at The Factory on the Mezzanine, 230 Franklin Road. I hope you’ll have a chance to drop by for the reception or sometime during the show.
The reception is from 6 to 8:30 on Saturday, April 20th. The show will be up from April 19 through May 20.
Ruffled-up Cowgirl is one of two pieces that I have in the show. 


  1. Des nuances de couleurs très douces et illuminées merveilleusement...
