Walking through the woods to paint en plein aire became quite interesting as it began to snow that week and finding any “fall color” was a challenge. I must

Summer Can’t Last Forever

Wow…Summer is almost over. School has started and I can actually feel and see Fall approaching. This last week of rain and thunderstorms helped remind me of the changing seasons. Sunsets and seasons are the cycles of the earth and the cycles of life.

Why do I create ART?

Last week when it was cold and windy here in Dallas, I was visiting and painting in New Mexico…Santa Fe, to be exact. I was joined by 1000 other artists at the Plein Air Convention. We painted all around the area but I ventured off to some other areas. A little bit more about that

My how time flies!  Many of you don’t know that I raise my grandson.  He is 7 years old and his name is Ashton.  He and his POPO are best buddies and you can see some of my humorous paintings about them in my Dreamscapes.  He starts the first grade soon and is very excited.

Tulips, spring color, painting, good food…does life get any better than this!  Maybe.  My lunch that day consisted of a can of potted meat, LOL!  I was so busy painting that food was the last thing on my mind. Most of the time when I am painting outdoors (en plein air) I have to finish
