This week-end has quenched my thirst for art. Being in the city versus the ranch has made it a challenge to devote time to painting. I find it tempting to visit places that were too distant for the last 18 years. Yesterday we were able to check out the works of Porfirio Salinas at theContinue reading “Bluebonnet Blues and Sunflowers too many….”
In the words of Paul Simon You know life is what we make it So beautiful or so what I’m gonna tell my kids a bedtime story A play without a plot Will it have a happy ending? Maybe yeah, maybe not I tell them life is what you make of it So beautiful orContinue reading “So Beautiful or So What”
This photo was taken by Leicaman on our morning walk. An unusual view of Texas Bluebonnets, but I love it, probably because of that or maybe because like Daddy Bub….Leicaman loves carrying a camera with him where ever he goes….sometimes two or three. This morning he took photos of the moon…..yesterday it was something different….allContinue reading “Spring has Sprung”
It was hard to know where to stand to get the best view of the San Antonio Longhorn cattle drive this year. This was our first time to go and we were excited to get some photos. We could not decide on which lens to use. We found a great spot for next year, butContinue reading “Longhorn Cattle Drive”
Not sure what to name this painting. It is another image full of memories…..many horses over the years. I have loved them all! This is acrylic on paper……the first of a series.

The worst fire consumed 0ver 700 acres and we have had our share of floods sinceContinue reading “Recuerdos”
It warms the soul on a cold day when you can walk into a place of business and feel genuinely welcome. On a freezing day this month of February, I had the luxury to make a return visit to a wonderful art gallery in San Antonio, The Greenhouse Gallery . Surely it has been closeContinue reading “Worth Seeing”
I have had this image in my mind for a long time. This morning I started reading about the technique called minimalism. It can apply to anything….furniture, landscaping, life in general. This is pretty much the opposite of my life style…I am more of a maximistic person. Yes, I just made up that word…..This appliesContinue reading “All That Glitters”
My friend, Sue brought photos of her Brahman calves a few months ago. They are adorable. Her babies are a rich golden color…….This is a watercolor painting on Arches 140 hot press paper. It works well with all water media.
We started seeing these Falcons just about four years ago. The male Kestrals just happen to have two of my favorite colors. I have painted them several times and I just finished this mixed media on arches watercolor paper.
