Ground Mist (10X20)

There are so many misty mornings when I spend the time doing mental paintings as I drive in to my day job.  I've finally used some actual paint to try to express one.

Uproariously Good Time (9x12)

This was based on a very old black & white photo of my grandparents. I didn't work too hard on getting likenesses, but only on the fun they were obviously having.

Cafe in Menton (16x20)

Colorful Prep (16x20) SOLD

The reference photo for this painting was taken at the annual Eastside Easter picnic, always a colorful event in all respects. I have still not been able to master my camera and get accurate colors.  This painting won Best in Show at the Fall 2012 Wimberley Valley Art League Show juried by Debra Broz of the Pump Project in Austin.
