Burro Confidential

"Burro Confidential" (pastel, 13.5 x 13.5 inches) $625 unframed for a limited time.

Happy Spring, y'all! Happy Easter!

This was a demo I started last weekend at the Carriage House Gallery in Boerne TX, and recently finished in my studio. I had the drawing down long before that and finally dug it out to paint! These are a couple of donkeys I met near Marble Falls a few years ago, and I composed this gossipy pose with two pics in Photoshop.

If this is still available in a week or so it will be framed and taken with me to the Cottonwood Art Festival in Richardson TX (near Dallas) the first weekend of May.

Hard at Work (and new video!)

"Hard at Work" (pastel, 12x6 inches) $320 unframed for a limited time

I did a bumblebee painting a while back and really enjoyed it. I decided I'd do another for the demo at the Carriage House Gallery last weekend during the 23rd Annual Boerne Parade of Artists.

I had a couple volunteers take some video clips, and over the last two days I taught myself how to use Adobe Premiere Pro (with a lot of help from Google and YouTube videos!) So, here's a video demo for you. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for watching, and please share!

Daddy!

"Daddy!" (pastel, 18x24 inches) $1730

Painting 21 of my 21-in-31 in March. Yay, I did it!

This daddy and calf were one of the sweetest cow encounters I've ever seen. The mama and baby were on the other side of a fence, and I caught the daddy Angus bull with my camera as he stood up and went over to the Hereford mama and greeted her. Then the baby came near as if to say, "Hi Daddy! Is that you?"

This painting and many of my other news ones from March will be with me at the Bayou City Art Festival this weekend March 29-31, 2019, in Memorial Park, Houston TX. Come see me in booth 519, in the Rosewood area. Hope you can make it!

It was time for another bison. I still have a few good shots left from a family vacation to Yellowstone years ago.

Prime will be with me at the Bayou City Art Festival March 29-31, 2019, in Memorial Park, Houston TX. Hope to see you there! Come see me in booth 519.
