Film School

12 x 16. Oil on Canvas. I painted this vertically but I think I like it better horizontal. The good news with abstracts is you can hang them either way.

My Journey Does Not End Here

8 x 16 Acrylic on Panel. Who painted this painting?? I did. I just finished a 2 day workshop with Jo Petersen and Dena Wenmohs at the Bunkhouse. It was completely different than what I normally do. I really needed a break from taking myself and my paintings so seriously! I can no longer claim to not be able to do an abstract painting.

Deep Eddy

5 x 5. Oil on panel. Yesterday it was 98 degrees in Austin. It makes plein air painting unappealing. However, several of us are in the habit of painting by local pools. We jump in before we start painting and drip dry as we paint. We were also in the shade. It was nice to be outside and Deep Eddy was the place to be! It was crowded.
