LORIES BURRO

Oil on board
12" x 16"

Lorie is a friend who shares my interest in art. She is a very creative person and lives in the Philippine Islands. I was deciding on a new painting and had three in mind. She choose this one, and I am glad she did. It turned out nice. Then I asked her to use her creativity to give it a title. Her immediate suggestion was "Malburro" Very funny Lorie.

BARRIO STREET SCENE

Oil on mounted linen
24" x 30"

This painting had a lot of different textures to deal with. The old adobe wall, the brick wall and metal door, dirt road, animals, people and even the mountains in the background. I am pleased with this painting of street life in Mexico, even though it gave me fits to paint.

GARDEN IN ALAMOS

Oil on mounted linen
24" x 30"

This was a commission painting of one of the gardens on the garden tour in Alamos. It takes a lot of work and thought to create a garden like this. The challenge with this painting was the hedge in the foreground. I needed to make it interesting and yet not interfere with the main subject matter. I was pleased to pull that off.

HILL COUNTRY HOLSTEINS

Oil on mounted linen
12" x 16"

In the remote areas of the hill country of Texas, some people still keep a few milk cows around. The black and white cattle are a stark contrast to the landscape. The early moon in the sky is an interesting part of this painting.
