Redo Not Talking To You 8"x6"

Sometimes when you do a painting you ask yourself, "Could I have done it better?".  In this case, I decided, yes, I could have done it better. I wanted to eliminate some of the green and make it look more like a room by adding a wood floor and stripes to the wallpaper. I'm a lot happier with the painting now. Thanks for stopping by.

That's My Guy

Yup, that's my guy giving bunny ears to David Bates, Male Head IV. He was a really good sport going to the Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art and The Kimbell Art Museum with me. We had a really good time and the artwork at both places were a feast for the eyes. Thanks for stopping by.

What's On The Easel

These are the two current works I have sitting on my easel. I can't wait to start on them after I get back from my visit to Ft Worth to see the Lucien Freud portrait exhibit being held at the Ft Worth, Texas, Museum of Modern Art. I've been looking forward to this exhibit all summer! I hope it will recharge my painting batteries. Thanks for stopping by.

The Guard Post 12"x24"

I enjoyed painting this guy. I think he ended up with a slight folk art look which I like. I enjoy the idea that he is the guardian of his little piece of ocean. Thanks for stopping by.

The Shell Connoisseur 6" x 8"

I did a similar painting to this but, on a larger scale. I wanted to try a smaller version and experiment with colors a little. It is always a challenge when working small. Thanks for looking.
