By the Quiet Stream

I really enjoyed painting this one from a photo of my daughter, Laurel. The original painting is definitely better than the photo of it. This currently on display at the Austin Bergstrom International Airport.

This was painted from one of the photos I took of some goats in my neighborhood. It taught me that if I want to paint animals, I HAVE to start out with a good drawing before starting with the paint. Not doing so made this a lot harder than it needed to be.

The Man from the Valley

I saw this man on the street in East Austin and immediately knew that I wanted to paint him. He very kindly let me take some photos of him, and this is the resulting painting.
