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 horswe 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.

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.
