I painted this watercolor from a photo of a floral arrangement from last year's Imagine event. We are sneaking up on this big event so everyone please mark your calendars. Friday night, February 22nd at 7:00 pm,Texas State University, Round Rock Campus (Off University Drive which is the same as 1431). It will be a huge gala and everyone who attends has a wonderful time!!!
My artist buddy and partner in crime Rae decided I needed to rename this diptych to Tsunami. So I have renamed them. This is the second half of the duo. Textured collages do not show up well in photographs so these need to be viewed in "real life."
Happy New Year everyone. I hope you all had great holidays and are getting back to the regular world. I've been working on a large collage that I ended up not liking. I decided to split the composition and turn it into a diptych which I preferred much more. So this is part one of my latest abstract. I think my mind is still on the Italian coast although I had nothing in mind when I started these. This work is constructed with all hand painted papers, some pencil and oil pastels. Comments are always welcome.

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.
