Xmas Lights on the Riverwalk 6x12" $165.00 SOLD

This was a challenge to get the colors believable and I hope I didn't try to put too much detail into it.  But I wanted to contrast the glaring lights to the calm water--really fun to paint!

Mission Conceptcion 8"x16" $275.00 SOLD


This is my last mission for awhile.  Next I want to do some paintings of the new Xmas lights on the Riverwalk.  Whether you like them or not-they have given the Riverwalk a totally different look at Christmas and for a painter--the drama of these lights is pretty exciting.

Mission San Juan 8x10 $185.00 SOLD

I have now painted three missions.  Will be posting Mission Conceptcion soon.  Actually have done four because the Alamo is one of the missions and I have painted it many times.  All of those have sold so guess i better do some more!

Portrait of Amelia

I don't do alot of these pencil portraits because I have lately been concentrating on my painting.  However, I do them occassionally for friends and mostly for family--its the perfect wedding gift or new baby gift--although I make them wait until the baby is 2 or 3 years old and has developed some personality.  And as you can see--my adorable GREAT  niece, Amelia, is full of personality!!  My commercial price for these is now $500 each.  I put the price high because they are hard to do and take me away from the painting!
