See this gentleman almost every time I go to the grocery store. He and his worldly possessions in his grocery cart take up residence on a bus stop bench just across the street from where I shop. Stopped one day to ask if he minded if I took his photo explaining that I was a painter and would be interested in painting him. He was so accommodating and couldn't wait to talk about art with me.
Hoping this will be juried into the national OPA show here this coming spring.
Not sure how I let so many months pass before I post new paintings on this blog. Certainly not that I haven't been painting! Miss it and especially keeping up with blog friends and seeing their new artwork. Okay, like everyone else, here's to new years resolutions to improve on posts!
This painting was inspired by a group of tepees just south of Santa Fe, NM. The western sunsets add even more awe to an already magnificent landscape.
Thanks for visiting my blog featuring my most recent oil paintings. I have an art degree from Southern Methodist University and spent about 10 years marketing my paintings through museum art shows, decorators and representation at the Dallas Decorative Center. I put the paints aside for a few years to pursue other business and design interests, but most recently have returned to oil painting. If purchase information is not listed, email me personally if you are interested. Thanks for visiting my blog.
