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

Another Paint Out!
Today, I traveled south about 45 miles to Corsicana, Texas to participate in a 2-day paint out. After checking in, I drove around the historic downtown area and came upon an old feed store. The sunlight was filtered by a haze so I opted to get my drawing in place and return tomorrow, hoping for better light conditions. Check back in a couple of days; I'll have at least 2 new paintings to share!
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.
