I Painted Her at Royal Ground Coffee in San Raphael, Ca.

This is one of the only 2 paintings that I was able to do while I was on vacation out in Marin County recently. My sister-in-law dropped me off at this coffee house in San Raphael. I was really nervous, since it was my first attempt outside of Austin. I just loved her pink ruffly […]

I Painted Katelyn at the Barking Dog

I just got back from delivering some paintings down to AMSET, the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. It’s located in Beaumont. I had never been to AMSET before – it is a very nice museum. Sarah Hamilton, the curator, was very nice and friendly. She even helped me carry the paintings into the museum. Inside, […]

I Painted This Smart Fellow at Epoch

I’ve been out of town! I just returned from visiting relatives in Marin County. I spent most of my time walking the trails, and visiting my wonderful relatives out California-way.  They were kind enough to drive me to a coffee house in San Raphael for a couple of hours, and I did a few paintings […]

Final Painting for the Upcoming Show: Waiting Forever

Sometimes, we’ve been spurned. Or, we’re stuck in an existential funk as in Bunuel’s film “No Exit”.  Why do we feel that we have to stay for the ending? My show of studio work is coming up on April 4th.  I will also be showing a few of the coffee house paintings. If you are […]

I Painted John Erik Metcalf at Conjunctured

I painted John Erik Metcalf while he was at work at Conjunctured.  Now is a good time to repost his portrait, since he is very involved with SXSWi.  If it weren’t for the “Conjunctured Boys”, I wouldn’t have a blog.   They are helpful, smart, and will help Austin maintain it’s tech-savy edge.  I don’t understand […]

A Painting of Cooper the Boxer

Sorry, folks – I haven’t been out to paint people without getting caught in a month.  I’ve been painting in the studio for an upcoming show.  It’s basically interiors, with some dogs and girls.  You see,  I was brought up in a trailer house in West Texas following wildcat rigs around (I didn’t even think […]

Detail of a Painting from the Studio

It measure 16″x20″, which is a large painting for me.  It has a very, RED wall.  I did a series in 2004 or interiors with red walls and dogs.  Why do we love red? I won’t be able to paint people in public until after my show, so bear with me until then.  I will […]

My Second Painting for the Upcoming Show

It still needs touch-up and clean-up.  I’ll do that when it dries.  The first one needs clean-up and corrections, too. I’m having a difficult time juggling painting for the show, and doing my painting in public.  Hope that ya’ll will bear with me.  I plan on painting live tomorrow.  Then, I will have to take […]

A Studio Painting from the “Shattered” Series

I’ll explain myself tomorrow regarding this painting.
