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 didn't sketch. We went to Lowe's yesterday to get something for Gene's trike I think and I got some hanging flowers for the porch. Gene hung them and the hummingbird feeders which we haven't put out for a couple of years. We will see if the birds remember us.
We passed some big flags flying in the breeze. The first one here is at the Chevy dealers and is huge, you can tell by the size of the cars below it. The other two are at the bank by Lowe's. Not sure what bank it is. Hmm.
We are getting close to Independence Day. It will be quiet here this year. No community celebration in Bastrop. I am very sad about that.
This is Gene the day before taking down our flag as it was starting to rain. He is good about flag etiquette.
My Canadian artist friend, EP, sent me this Canadian song for Canada Day which is July 3. She said it reminded her of me. I guess I'm always telling her and the Scavenger Hunt folks about things we miss in Canada after spending ten or more summers there. Fun song if you have time.
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)
