These Boots are made for Walkin'

This painting is larger than what I've been doing. It's an 11 x 14 - ampersand panel. I have to tell you that paintings I've done on these panels usually come out better for me. I think it helps me paint looser. Anyway, these are my niece, Sunny's red boots. She is about to turn 2. They are precious (just like her).

The path of least resistance

6 x 8 - Oil on panel. Today the Wildcats painted at Zilker Park. My goal was to simplify today. I usually try to pick something I think will be simple and it turns out complicated. Today I chose a path and because I was simplying the title seemed to fit the situation.

Longhorns & Bluebonnets-No place but Texas

8 x 10 oil on canvas. I took the photo outside of Austin. I saw the longhorns in the bluebonnets and said "that is Texas."

Dragonfly Mosiac

No, this is not a painting. I do mosaics on occasion when the mood strikes me. I've had this awhile. The colors of the dragonfly are a little greener and the body of the dragon fly is chocolate brown. I've decided to sell it if anyone wants to buy it. It is on a wooden board 14 in x 32 in. I was going to make a bench or something but I haven't gotten around to it. I'm selling it for $200. It's ceramic tile but it's a little thinner than what you find at the home improvement store. My photo is not as straight as the actually piece.
