Just started this painting today. It is LOADED with thick paint. It is good that I won't be able to work on it until Saturday because it is so wet. This is a wooden fence-line on a south Texas Highway. The fence is one of those old fashioned ones that is stacked wooden pieces and it twists and turns just the way the road does. I like the way the road leads your eye into the picture (even at this early stage).
This is a commission I have recently finished for a friend for Father's Day. It is of her father; they call him "Big Dad,"his yellow lab, Daisy, and two of his grandsons. I hope she will be pleased. I have worked hard on this and it passed studio critique with flying colors!
Thank you for taking the time to look at my blog. Have a wonderful Easter tomorrow.
This was a commission for a little guy named Benjamin that his parents call Banjo. Robin, his mom, asked about doing it last year, so I started and then stopped. I have started and stopped several times because I wasn't happy with it. I am pleased now and so are Robin and Tim. Can't wait for it to dry to deliver it!
This is just a preliminary blocking in of skin tones for Keaton on a surfboard. If you look back, you'll see that I did her on the beach a few weeks ago. This is the same set of vacation pictures. Keaton Hale is a three year old "drama queen" (ham) that is the apple of her parents' eye. Her pose was just too cute to pass up and a favorite of mine. Wonder if she'll grow up to be a surfer,model or a princess?
I was born in Dallas, Texas quite a while ago. Went to school in Dallas and college in Denver,Colo. Now I live in Highland Park, a small suburb of Dallas.
I worked for DISD for 30 years and now I'm starting my second profession. Started this blog to showcase some of my paintings and hear from others. Especially those who like what they see!
