I can’t say how good it feels to complete a painting, even if it is just a sketch. I haven’t done anything art wise since before Peyton graduated from high school last June. Now I have several ideas for paintings. I am looking forward to next week’s event in Wilson County…….This will be my firstContinue reading “I Know Owl About You”
I should say handsome in pink. With a combination of rose dore madder, naples yellow red and a touch of blue/grey and titanium zinc white, I added the background color that I like to compliment Wellie’s black and white curls.

I have just been commissioned to paint a series of San Antonio’s finest attractions and Rosario’s is first on my list. We recently sampled their new menu and were as usual, impressed with the food,ambiance, service, everything. It isContinue reading “San Antonio’s Finest”
I painted this pastel based on three reference photos taken on the same day. That day we had a serious out of control wild fire. The horses and ponies were running around snorting and freaking out. I think mostly they sensed my fear as horses always are aware of. Their survival is based on theirContinue reading “Co-Madres”
If only I had this raw talent. I would not want to clean up after these guys, but with the profits that these piglets will be bringing in, they will have their own studio with maid service….
I need to finish this painting. Just a few more flowers and leaves and it will be done. These little artists finished about 20 masterpieces in a day….I should be able to do this one…..
