Sorry I've been gone for so long. I've been traveling again and just returned from a great trip to Hawaii with 4 wonderful artist buddies. We visited Maui and it was truly paradise. I think we traveled every square inch of the island and made sure we got to do a horseback ride and swim in one of the Seven Sacred Pools. I now have hundreds of reference photos to paint from when I settle down in my studio. In just over a week I'll be hitting the road again with more art friends to visit Spain. This year is a very busy travel time for me and I've loving every minute of it. Unfortunately, it's cutting into my painting and posting time. Ha The above painting won PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD at the 5th Annual Imagine Art Event. What a fun surprise that was at the end of the evening when the votes were finally tallied. Thanks to everyone who voted for my painting. It is currently on exhibit at Texas State University, Round Rock Campus, 4th floor until May 16th.

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.
