All Pumped Out

I thought I would put this painting on since gas prices are going up and up again!
I took this photo somewhere around Sweetwater, Texas, and just thought it to be a timely reminder of the days that go by so quickly! These are the sort of things i enjoy painting, things of yesterday and sentimental things.
"All Pumped Out" started out as transparent, and then I ended up using some acrylics with it. Much to my surprise, It won Best in Show in the Denver City (TX) art show this spring.

Daniel Smith Summer Sale Catalog

The new Daniel Smith Catalog is out...finally. It was hard waiting on it! I am very proud that they chose my painting, "Lobster Shack" for one of their summer sale catalogs. The painting was done from a photo that i took when my daughter and I were on vacation. I love that little shack! it was so colorful! The sort of thing that catches your eye, especially if you love color.

"Gone Wild"

Well, I am excited!I got into SWS for the 4th time!
One more and I can be a signature member!
I have been painting but not blogging. this is all new to me. There are so many things I want to paint...Is just hard to get to all of it!
The Painting "Gone Wild" is the painting that got into SWS. It is from a pasture full of thistle in Cloudcroft NM. I have never seen such a field of flowers ever.
They were at least 4 foot tall! Very 'eye' catching!
I did a lot of negative painting on this one, and enjoyed doing it!
