watercolor workshops

"View of Truchas, New Mexico"...painted
at one of my watercolor travel workshops.
There's quite a story connected with this. After I painted
this watercolor my wife, two older women students and I
continued up the road to this quaint little town where
Robert Redford directed "The Milagro Beanfield War".
Driving through town we were accosted by a gang of drunk
Mexican young people who stood in front of the car and
informed us they hated 'gringos' and didn't allow them
in their town. Only my cool demeanor under pressure
allowed us to survive the day.

The next day we painted this great scene of the
"Rio Grande Gorge" near Taos.

Both of these watercolors are available for
Purchase at

Father/daughter outings

"Ah yes, I remember it well'...sounds like a good song
title! Those were the good 'ol days when my daughters
used to enjoy going on sketching outings with me.

...guess the bonding time wasn't a strong enough bond.
Nowadays they both go to college and even tho' they are
still living at home they don't seem to have time to hang
out with the pops anymore...( tears beginning )...

Guess I'll just mosey on out to the backyard and
pet my dog. ( anyone sympathizing yet? ).

"The Tree People"

acrylic, 30 x 24"
This is a commissioned piece I just
completed for a charity auction to be
held in May in San Antonio, Texas which
will benefit "ChildSafe, Hope and Healing
for Sexually Abused Children."
My wife, ( Running with Scissors, aka
Terisa ), and I will be attending the event
as I have been asked to be one of the
featured artists.
