Today I am spotlighting my selection of prints. I have a good selection giclee print images on file of current and past work. I will have new pieces weekly. Today we have Guadalupe Peaks painted a few years ago. I still have the original too.
While I love to create new work, I still enjoy viewing my favorites from the past too. I have created a nice selection of prints of previous work. I will be posting a new print each week. If you want a notice of new posting let me know. I have them framed or lose. The piece today is Guadalupe Peak.
A silent pastoral setting surrounds this white horse that belonged to Jenny may years ago. Jenny has grown to be a mom and this horse is undoubtedly moved on to higher pastures. I love the quiet solitude that pervades this scene around Giddings Texas.

The spring time is a glorious time for color in Texas. Almost the entire year we endure green everywhere in summer and in the winter we are all grey all the time. It is time once again, thanks very much, to celebrate spring!

I have spent many days and nights as a child, a teenager and an adult on the unique stretch of Texas coast. We've fished, camped and played in the surf. The sunrise here is so intense but brief it is impossible to capture as a photograph it must be rendered as art. This painting will be auctioned in May through the Heritage Auction Galleries www.ha.com. I hope you like it!

The Frio River inside of Garner State Park is like a holy place for me. I have camped along this river as a little boy with my family and brothers. I have walked and camped here as a grandfather with my granddaughter Iris. The feeling is always the same, calm and cleansing of the spirit. I painted this piece this week. More to come.

This fall we took our annual trip to Garner State Park near Uvalde. This time was very special because my granddaughter, Iris was with us. She told me later how she loved to camp and would like to live out here in the woods. We saw lots of wildlife including skunks, skunks and more skunks! During the night we were surrounded by them. Large, or small we had all sizes. Iris's dog, Kinggers was smartly very demur and everyone was simpatico every night. Live and let live. One day everyone climbed to the top of Baldy except Iris and I. We had fun doing other stuff. But after the trip I painted this piece for the climbers.
