"Old Barn II"

Available - This is an old barn located in East Austin. It spoke to me, so I had to paint it. As you can see from my blog, sometimes I paint very traditional and other times, I just let my mind loose. Lately I've been asked to paint larger, so this is my largest painting to date - 18 x 24! Enjoy!

"Odd Balls"

Available - I created this abstract in a recent workshop with super artist Rae Andrews. This is mixed media starting with colored pastel paper, watercolor and inks and finally accented with pastels. I love doing abstracts - never know what's going to come out of my head.

"Lake Austin" - SOLD

SOLD - (Thank you Rebecca for selling another painting) This is a plein air painting done at Laguna Gloria down behind the mansion on the lake. Such a beautiful property with many areas to paint. I will go back soon and pick another spot to paint. It was an overcast day with periodic sun peeking thru the clouds. Very quiet, peaceful morning to paint.

"Little Orange Skirt"

This one was tough! I've never painted a child before and it's very difficult. At different stages she looked like a witch, street walker, old lady and finally I got this look. Now she kind of looks like a porcelain doll!! This is the little girl that belongs to mom in the painting "Orange Skirt". Comments??!!

"Orange Skirt"

Available - I painted this today from a photo of a lovely girl in Ajijic Mexico. She had a beautiful daughter that had just wandered off. A few of the women in this town wore full festive dress, but most did not. As soon as I saw her I knew I wanted to paint her and her daughter.

"Rockport Palms" SOLD

Thanks Geri for adding this one to your Rockport art collection. Goodbye Rockport for now. This was my last view of Rockport on Sunday before returning home. The sky was just starting to cloud up, then it turned very dark, and it poured rain. We just caught a piece of the storm before getting out of town. Great weekend.
