Check out my next workshop


3 DAYS, 3 WAYS TO DO CONTEMPORARY FIGURE PAINTING Liz Hill, lizhill4u@aol.com , 713-252-7726. Friday-Sunday Sept 16, 17, 18; 10:00- 4:30pm $150 Join a fun filled 3-day workshop with Liz Hill, award winning mixed media artist. Each day you will have a model in the morning, lunch, followed by the method of painting you are working on that day. You should have a finished piece at the end of each day. There will be critiques first thing the next morning. Questions? Contact Liz at Lizhill4u@aol.com or call 713-252-7726 Supply List: PAINT- any Watermedia you generally use. I prefer watercolor along with opaque paint, but acrylics painters bring either. PAPER- you will need lots of inexpensive drawing paper for the mornings. You will also need 3 sheets (22x30”) hot press 140# paper. We will tear it in half and use half two pieces each day. (Do not try these techniques on cold press paper.) I use Fabriano traditional white & will bring some with me for sale at $5 a sheet. DRAWING- pens, pencils, inks, colored pencils, watercolor crayons. Bring any or all of these. I use a lot of the colored pencils and crayons. COLLAGE- bring any papers you have, from prepared collage papers to magazine prints, old letter, sheet music. I do mean anything! The more varied the more interesting. MEDIUMS- white gesso, matt medium, black gesso if you choose and any other colored gesso you would like. Any stamps and prints you would like. Come with an experimental mind!

anyone remember Carl?


I took a quick trip to the hill country, and visited the beautiful Medina River
I did a demonstration for the Katy Area Artists on Saturday at the beautiful Katy Contemporary Art Museum (KCAM).  The building is beautiful and with all of the flooding last week only the storage area got water. 
I enjoyed visiting with Ana, the director of the museum.  I hope that it continues to thrive so that I may someday get a show there.  A beautiful space.

SHOWING AT H AND H KITCHEN IN THE WOODLANDS. TEX

The theme for this months show at the Hubbel and Hudson Kitchen
was horses.  I am showing with some of the finest horse artists in Houston.  This one is called "Blue and Pink" .  Next month it goes to St. Lukes Hospital.  It takes alot of nerve to show with the horse experts.

Watercolor Society

We had a weightlifter on Wednesday, this was probably the only thing I got worth saving, however as suggested by a friend, may make it a companion piece to "The Morning After", good idea.

Another New Mexico painting

I already gave this to a friend who watches my cats when I am out of town.  She has a new house, so it made the perfect housewarming present.  Anyone who takes care of my babies deserves my art.

Ghost Ranch Landscape, October 2015

This is the first landscape I did in Ghost Ranch.  The landscape is outstanding no matter where you look.  The light keeps changing and you are looking at another painting every hour or so. Facinating place to landscape paint, I can see why Georgia O'Keefe fell in love with the area.  We had a tour around the ranch and a tour or the O'Keefe home.  Everything was very inspring and I have enough landscape photos to last me the rest of my life.

Working more on my Galveston Bathing Beauties, am in the middle of trying to sell my house, this is not conducive to being relaxed and creative.  Miss my art so much.

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.  

Sunday, July 19, 2015

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.
