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.

A Challenge

am attempting to do tatoos, now that is a challenge.  They need to move with the body, not just sit on top of the form.  Interesting.
