Ocean Sky

The wind and the waves and the clouds drifting by, taking all the cares of the day with them. Layers of oil paint with texture scraped away and layered again. I can almost feel the sand in my toes.

Yucca Fields

Sometimes when painting plein air the wind and bugs are so overwhelming that by the end of a painting session I am incredibly underwhelmed by my painting. I woke up this morning with the answer to my struggles. This is my studio piece created from my day painting yucca at White Rock.

Bluebonnet Time

Ahh, bluebonnet time in Texas, the time of the year that all True Texan bleed blue. The annual trip to find the best field of bluebonnets. I didn't have to travel far for this one. This lot where an old house once stood is now covered with bluebonnets for the neighborhood's enjoyment. My daily walk takes me by this lovely scene.
