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.
I sketched at the table this morning. My sketching and handwriting are not up to par today. I must be that I am in a gloomy mood, it is cloudy. Also the Loblolly yellow/green pollen started so we had to bring in all the furniture from the porch and cannot have the windows open because the yellow gunk comes through the screens. It is like the powdered sugar on the cake above but a yellowy color and when it gets wet it stains. Not nice. So a nice temperature of 70-75 and we are closed up!
I sketched for Scavenger Hunt 398 in the large book with a Micron 05 pen.

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)
