Gloria, as much fun as ever

A treat yesterday at the Watercolor Society, we drew Gloria again, she puts so much into her work it is a pleasure to draw her.  Never get tired of doing it, she has such character. Am leaving tomorrow for Austin, need a daughter and grand daughter fix.

Work back from Galveston

The show in Galveston is over, it was quite sucessful and would like to show more work there.  Sold "Josianne" again.  This woman inspires me .  I still have the painting I did of Josianne as a white girl.  Apparently God meant her to be black.

Josianne again

Eventually I will get tired of painting her?
In the meantime, she's still my favorite, and
have quite a collection.

Back from Galveston

Will bring this back home on Thurs, am picking up work from the Tyler Studio show in Galveston.  This piece has been so popular I am planning on making prints, which is a new thing for me.  Will look into it next week.

Home from Dallas to waterlogged Houston

Got home from Dallas, am amazed at the weather, dark and grim just as it was when I left.  I enjoyed sunshine in the big D.  Did a workshop at Teta Smiths Studio.  She is a real gem, I so enjoyed meeting and working with her.  The class was top notch and will post a slide show when I get rested up in a day or so.  She  has a wonderful group of  artists and they are so much fun.  Will never pass up a chance to teach there.

My daughter's birthday painting

When your daughter asks for a painting you have to comply, even when it is a strange paper size (32" x 28") you do it. It  required extra large paper, now that I have a roll, I can make some more strange size paintings.  Hopefully it looks good on their fireplace.

Landscape Collage

This is a demonstration I did for the people at Wenmohs Ranch.  On the last day we did landscape collage.  After I came home I put a catfish in with the new transfer method I learned.  It works great.   This is Galveston, you can't see the many layers online.

Sunday Delmo

I did a demo in Baytown yesterday, really a sweet group of women, they have programs going every day, all kind of interesting things.  The color on this is all wrong as usual.  I need photo lessons.

Hard pill to swallow.

I offered to do a 1 day workshop in the Woodlands, (my home).  They can't fill it.  AM disappointed.

For Dale,

I am getting worse at photoing my work, obviously I need lessons.  This is the finished piece which I have shown in a couple places. I use this as a sample for my students taking landscape collage.  I have gotten more interested in this technique and have started working on large canvas pieces , if you check my recent work I am referring to the Austin Canyon pieces.  Thank you for your interest, Dale, it is now for sale.

My friend Joan has a lovely daughter named Amber, she dressed as a belly dancer for a costume party, couldn't resist doing a painting.  It is on a prepared surface on canvas.
