I can't believe it's already been a week! I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year! I started off with some plein air painting on the January 1st. Seems like a promising start; I'm hopeful 2017 will be my best painting year yet. This was done at Robert Lee, TX. It's a great place to paint, and I look forward to more excursions to this location.

I loved the idea of shooting stars falling into the snow, and a meditation on our connection with the universe. This painting is larger than I usually work; it's 48x36".

This painting is the start of a new series about landscapes that represent transitions. Hopefully the spiritual aspect will come into play as I expire this idea further; the transition or veil between life and death, renewal and ending.

This is a 12x16" oil painting I did (commission) for a friend. I rarely do these kind of jobs because it's hard to get the feeling of a place unless I'm there in person, taking my own photos and gathering my own color information. However…in this case, because I know the person and he had exceptional photos (and lots of them) I decided to go for it. I'm so glad I did, and it made everyone happy. That's what it's all about!

"Hi! I'm a little nervous, but mostly excited about my first day of school!" Remember how that felt? I sure do, and I think it translated perfectly into this adorable hippo sculpture. He's about the size of a coffee cup, hand-sculpted polymer clay with acrylic paint. I've decided I'm happiest doing it all; painting, making greeting cards and sculpting. So stay tuned, and that's what you'll see…everything!
