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.

The Bastrop Fine Arts Guild is having their annual fundraiser for the new art center. I am a founding member but not an active one at this time. I can help with a donation of a painting for a raffle for the Artful Afternoon Gala. You can help by buying raffle tickets and attending the Gala.

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)
