The Texas Hill Country in the Winter is a wonderful adventure. The once barely green grasses turn a golden brown to compliment the red and golden dirt and pink granite of the landscape. I spotted this little oasis on the walk up to Enchanted Rock. This was a little reminder to not overlook the journey along the way as it is just as rewarding and the final destination. Sometimes the beauty of the depths of winter can be as rewarding as the glory of spring.

I enjoy painting our beautiful world and everything in it. I especially enjoy creating small daily paintings as a way to explore color and composition. I am initially attracted to a scene for its geometric relationships, rhythm or by a striking color contrast or harmony. I use strong imaginative color to create contemporary images. The interaction of color and composition evolves to describe the world as I see it.
