I've been doing a lot of abstract collage paintings lately. Some are very small like this one (5 x 7). This was made from painted papers, acrylics, watercolors, oil pastels and whatever else I happened to grab and throw in. Beginning November 1st there will be the Group of Four exhibit at ArtSpace in downtown RR. The reception is Thursday, 11/1/12 from 5:30-7:00. Come join us for wine & cheese if you can.
I'm still playing around and experimenting. I'm trying to add "spirit" designs to my little horse. He has spirits within and behind him. It's a fun experiment and makes an ordinary horse a bit different. Coming soon - - Group of Four Exhibit at ArtSpace for the month of November.
This is a collage I did one night wondering what Bevo might look like if he snuggled a giraffe. This is not one of my "serious" art works but I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. It's a collage of many pieces of painted watercolor tissues and papers. Sometimes I just have a great time playing with my imagination. Hope it make you smile!

After a lifetime of doing everything but art, I have now put my love of painting as a first priority. I wanted to major in art in college, but was quickly talked out of it by my father who said I'd never make a living with an art degree. So, scared that I might starve, I majored in business but squeezed in as many art electives as possible. Upon graduation I immediately went to work and never stopped. Never painted either!!
I now devote several days per week to pure painting time and enjoy the company of many local painters. Current art memberships include: Austin Plein Air, Waterloo Watercolor Group and Austin Pastel Society.
