I am a painter working in pastels, with some oils, and acrylics. I sketch in pen and ink. As an artist my original paintings are influenced from living in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Bolivia, Peru and Chile, and travels throughout much of Canada and all our fifty States.
This is my spot for posting paintings and sketches, to muse mostly about art, life and a little about UT Baseball.
Pastel Painting accepted into the Austin Pastel Society Show
I was pleased to open my e-mail and find that my painting, Hill Country Autumn, was accepted into the Annual Juried Member Exhibition for the Austin Pastel Society. You can see a slide show of the paintings that were accepted into the exhibit and another of all the entries on the Austin Pastel Society page. There were 96 entries and 50 selections. The awards will be given in March at the reception. The paintings will be up from March 7 - May 2 at the Corridor of Art - 700 Lavaca, Austin, TX 78701. I will post an invitation and map as the event approaches.
I Grew up in a small town , Magdalena, New Mexico. I enjoy art and the pleasure other people get from my work. I always donate some of my sales and art to charities, especially for children. That started in Bolivia with Para los Niños. (Link on sidebar)
