It's important to think ahead and plan for tomorrow, but an artist must also be in the moment...the now.

Doin' time at the computer.....
Sunday afternoon is the time I set aside to take care of my "art bizness"; Photograph & upload new paintings, create & print an "inventory sheet" with the digital image, title, size, date created, and an inventory number. Since I paint on a daily basis, I'll have anywhere from 3 to 10 paintings to add to my inventory file. Today, in addition to bringing my inventory file up to date, I've added some visual stuff to this blog such as the slide show, and some website links you may find interesting if you're an artist. Other websites will point you to my home town of Waxahachie. Anyway, as I've mentioned in a previous post, I'm "long on visual & short on verbal"....gotta get back to my "books".
I'm a full time artist; native Texan, self taught and work primarily in the medium of watercolor. Painting daily, I prefer to work en plein aire (on location), and I'm often seen working in the historic districts of Waxahachie and throughout the North Texas area. A member of several arts organizations including Outdoor Painters Society (Signature Member), Contemporary Fine Art International (Signature Member), Artists of Texas, Professional Artists in North Texas, International Plein Air Painters, Landscape Artists International,DeSoto Art League and Ellis County Art Association. Painting professionally for over 35 years, my originals are in private and corporate collections in 34 States, as well as Mexico, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Scotland, Portugal, Germany, and Republic of Benin, West Africa.
