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

ON THE ROAD AGAIN.....
Within the next few days, I'll be on a plane to Maui for a "working" vacation. New airline rules for luggage limits a person to 1 checked bag and a carry-on....and each bag cannot weigh more than 50#. Needless to say, I may be painting "nekkid" cause I'm packing my plein air gear first & if there's any room left, I'll throw in some clothes too. I'm excited about this trip; it's my first visit to the Hawaiian Islands and I'm sure that I haven't allowed enough time (or money) to "do it right".
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.
