Typical Texas Series #1

16 x 32" - Oil on stretched canvas
I've decided to work on some landscape paintings of the Texas Hill country for my upcoming solo show in September and October in Georgetown. Well those, among other things. This first one was inspired by a Google maps street view image from along side FM 1174 between 1869 and 1431. Whew! Sounds like a bowl of Number Soup, doesn't it? I say "inspired" because after I got going I thought of all sorts of ways to make it more interesting. So the water, the large boulders and the distant hills were all from imagination.
$ 750
+ $38 s&h

Self Portrait

9x12" - Graphite on Bristol vellum

The local art association that I belong to chose "Self Portrait" as the challenge project for this month, and I've done so many portraits since I started drawing last summer, that I kinda sorta felt like I had to get in on it. If you'd like to order a portrait done in this style (it's all with graphite pencils) click here to visit my website and get more information on sizes and pricing.
