First Place

"Waiting at the Night Cafe" got First Place at the Wimberley Valley Art League juried show which opened last night. While I was painting it I kept trying to remember where I'd taken the reference photo and kept thinking it must have been somewhere in southern France. But at the show someone asked me where it was and I suddenly recognized the setting: Whole Foods in downtown Austin!

"Swans' Focus" got an honorable mention.

Rendezvous at the Indian Restaurant (SOLD)

I think this composition adjustment works better.


8X10 oil on wood panel. We were waiting for our dinner at an outdoor Indian Restaurant tucked into a tiny alley in Vieux Nice. Yes, an Indian meal in France.

The Glamour of a Red Hat

16 X 20 X 1.5" oil on wood panel. My daughter Laurel found a wonderful red hat in St. Paul de Vence. It was instant glamour on a beautiful young woman.
