I've been playing with my watercolor abstracts again. I've just completed 2 "still life" paintings (16x20) and this is the first of the two. This one incorporates watercolor, oil pastel and watercolor pencils. I really enjoy painting this type of work. I paint and the painting talks back to me. It's sort of like a conversation in color.
This is my last little painting of Spain (5x7). It's just another scene we walked by while on a stroll one day in Mijas. It was meant to capture their love for colorful potted and blooming plants. This town was extremely clean. It looked like Mr. Clean had just visited right before we got there. Loved that place.
I'm still posting my recent travel paintings. This sweet face was one of the donkeys that were lined up and ready to take tourists on little rides around town. They were so sweet and just loved having their noses petted. We couldn't resist them but we sure smelled bad for the rest of the afternoon!

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.
