Title or Location: "Reflection"
I decided during the ice and cold weather we had recently to set up a quiet place around my recliner with a blanket, my watercolor pads and easel to take some time to enjoy the week painting. I turned on youtube videos of aquatic ocean with relaxing meditation music. All of a sudden my brush decided to paint "Reflection" from the imprint of the marine bold and beautiful movements I was watching. Taking all of those movements creating a piece of artwork that can speak without saying words gives s

Title or Location: Magnolia Diptych
Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee and now residing in Hernando, Mississippi magnolias have always been a piece of nature?s beauty I have admired. I began studying magnolia shapes on my walks with my daughter and painted several pieces in a study of the blooms. A local Memphis designer, Maggie Clarke, came across my works and commissioned me to paint these 26x36 watercolors. This diptych largest size I have done to date!

Title or Location: Scottsdale Arizona
I work in sketchbooks 98 of the time with my favorite pens. I prefer to draw live rather than from photos, so at night I find my characters on TV. Watercolor or other mixed media may find its way into the drawing, depending on which sketchbook I used. This was drawn in a Strathmore 500 series mixed media softcover book. The paper takes mixed media extremely well.

Title or Location: Fort Bend County Texas. This fence post stands next to a gate on a friends ranch, just off of Hwy 59 S.
On February 3rd of this year (2024), I was at my music duet partners ranch near Beasley and Rosenberg Texas, just off of Hwy 59 S. We often times go out to the country to rehearse our music when the weather is nice. I?ve driven through the gate and past this post many times before but on this particular day, the sun was shining just so perfectly and the old, rusty, broken chain really captured my attention. I jumped out of the truck and snapped a few photos, knowing I would eventually paint this

Title or Location: Peek-a-Boo
Spring is in the air. I have recently been doing some daffodil paintings. For this painting I did a wash and instantly saw the potential for more daffodils and space for the lamb peeking through them. One of my former instructors always said, ?Listen to your painting.? This is exactly what I did here. Possibly, the idea of a lamb was inspired by the season of Easter as well.
