My sister Lauren came to visit me (Yay!) and I always make my family paint when they visit me or when I visit them. She picked a Colorado picture and I suggested that we both do it in acrylic paint, because it is more forgiving than watercolor. I am SOOO proud of her result!! I am patting myself on the back for being a good teacher! You could reach out and touch the snow on those branches... (My painting is the one on top -soon to be available on ebay, if I get my act together)
After almost 20 years of Industrial Engineering, I decided to try to align my life with my values and priorities. Now I am an artist, part time ranch worker and part time church staff (strategic planning). That leaves almost no time for housekeeping, which is fine with me and my dust allergy!
My art business is called Texas Hill Country Art, and I mostly paint Texas wildflowers, landscapes, animals and such. I often paint commissions of people's favorite vacation photos.
Watercolor and acrylic paintings are also available in a greeting card format. ACEOs (baseball card sized paintings) are sometimes studies for my big paintings and sometimes just silliness, like my Ballerinas in Trouble series.
