Watercolor demo update: I started painting outside again, then it started to rain again and I moved everything back inside. Good thing, too, as I noticed a roof leak and was able to have our maintenance man take a look at it. But that does... not get my painting done any faster.... It is the Art Guild closing time now, and I have a meeting to get to in Boerne, so I will wrap up for the day. The first layer is complete on the blues and I added some shadows in the white centers, plus browninsh green on the stems. Next will be more blue on the flowers to make them bolder and to smooth out the light to dark transitions. After that, I will try to figure out why these photos look vertical when I select them and come out horizontal when I post them. I hope you don't have a crick in your neck from looking at them!

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.
