The Alamo at Night SOLD

Since I will be at the Alamo during Fiesta--decided to do a few Alamo paintings. I liked the Riverwalk at Night series so am doing a few Alamo at Night scenes. This is the first. Will try to do a few more before April 15.

Riverwalk Rest Stop SOLD

A break from the Riverwalk at Night series. Plan to show my work during Fiesta this year. Will be with the Randolph Art League at Alamo Plaza for three days April 21, 22, 23. It will be alot of work hauling display panels and artwork, but I am working on some prints to add a low end price range to my offerings and I plan to take my french easel and paint to pass the time. It will be an experience at the very least!

Riverwalk at Night #9 SOLD

This series is selling very well. Plan to do the Fiesta River Art Show in April. It will be 3 days of camping out by the River,but the weather should be lovely and I will just set up my paints and paint every day! Right now I am working hard on my color theory. Doing some landscapes just to practice getting the colors to pop. Trying to use photo references but make the painting "more than" the photo. I am taking some time out just to experiment and not think about a finished work or what it is "suppose" to look like. Practicing not falling in love with any part of the painting so that you can be willing to change and try something in the "what if" category. Don't know why that is so hard to do. Probably because we all never want to fail. Giving yourself permission to fail is very freeing!
