Title or Location: Untitled
Part of what makes this one of my favorite pieces was I knew when to stop. I tend to overly fuss with pieces, continuing with touch-up to the point where I end up making a mess of what had been a great piece. But with this one, I stopped even though I still had the itch to fix the "imperfections," and it's all the better for it.

Title or Location: Mr. Fish
Painted this in an Alexis Cant? online watercolor class. Just starting to venture into the watercolor world, this painting is in memory of a great fish friend I had - Mr. Fish. He was just a tiny little goldfish when I put him in my outdoor pond and in 3 years he was a giant beautiful fancy goldfish. He had great personality to.

Title or Location: Vast Landscape - Sky Study
This piece is a 9 x 12 inch watercolor on Fabriano 140lb cold-pressed paper. This was a result of practicing skyscapes for a commission, added to the "reject" pile. When the commissioned artwork was finished, I went through my pile of practice paintings and was so surprised by this sky. I fell in love with it. The landscape was added to compliment the sky, imaging the view of a bird in flight. It remains one of my favorite watercolor pieces, a reminder of success over perceived failure.

This is the first page in my newest watercolor sketchbook. It's an image I created from multiple years of beach going and what I imagined I would look like sitting waiting for the fish.

Title or Location: Trinity River Audubon Center
This painting was inspired on one of the many beautiful trails at the Trinity River Audubon Center. I recently joined a Dallas Plein Air painting group and this was my first outing. Mesmerized by the morning sun. Inundated by the sounds of nature. It was a blissful experience. It had been so long since I had been with nature and admittedly caught the plain air bug. There was a unifying experience as nature never stopped all around me and neither did I!

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
