In Deep Awe

Given our recent weather here in Austin, I would love to be here right now. I used one of my gouache plein air pieces as a jumping off point for this painting. Its fun watching people appreciating the ocean. Have a great week everyone.

Young Americans

I love painting old photos especially if someone else took them. This is a very old family photo. It depicts my stepfathers aunt, husband and children in front of their home. I did about three paintings of this image they all have different feels.

Rushing Pedernales

This one is from my archives. It started out as a block print on printmaking paper. I later added the gouache which ,in my opinion, took over the block print. This is a view of the Pedernales River here in central Texas.

1996 Abstract

I was desperately searching for a painting that a collector was interested in purchasing and came across this old painting of mine. I don't know who or what was motivating me back in the late nineties. I like how this one tricks the eye a little.

Men In Caps

I enjoy the energy in Austin during the festival season (its always festival season here). The people take on this energy. I liked the center characters sense of bravado. I'm enjoying just drawing for the fun of it theses days. I have not posted much but I will remedy that soon enough. I'm producing a lot of work however, and that keeps me happy. One has to be seen in order to be heard.
