I am still amazed at where my inspiration comes from for my paintings. For example this little jewel evolved from two sources, the first is from a photo a very small percentage, I just happened to like the pose and it is mostly from memory. The colors came from a dress a visitor was wearing yesterday in the studio. What can I say, the artist mind works in mysterious ways.

This week I am working on some small paintings that are headed to a gallery that just recently started carrying my work, which is located in Wimberley, Texas. They seem to be doing well with my art they sold all of the last group of paintings, which always makes me feel good to know people are enjoying my work. So they have requested some more paintings and as I complete these paintings I will try my best to post some of them over the next few weeks to give everyone an opportunity to view them before they leave the studio. If you are interested in purchasing any of them email or call the studio so that we can be sure to hold it for you.

As you can probably tell I am into painting what I call my southwest figures. I traveled a lot into northern New Mexico this past year and have lots of photo reference that I am working from. But as you can tell I take lots of liberties in using my “Artistic License”. I enjoy painting these figures, because the approach I take is a blend of representational and abstract I also get to work with lots of vivid and wild color combinations, which I find real enjoyable exploring with.

Hello sorry for the long absence I have plenty of excuses, but rather then list them all I will just say that I have been very busy. I feel real good about posting again and look forward to being more diligent about posting at least once a week this year.
There is so much that has happen in the studio that it would be impossible to get you caught up, so for now I will post one of the pieces that I painted this week. I am still going back and forth with oils and acrylics, love working with both mediums, this one is in acrylic.
