Red Bud Again

Really this Island is a dream come true for dog owners who are typically forced to stand in the ugliest of "dog parks" in order to let their dogs rome free.

Red Bud Island

There is a beautiful dog island here in Austin where the dogs run free and their human's walk happily beside them. It is heavenly.

Austin Train Bridge Sunset from the Water

I took my daughter out on a kayak tonight for the first time, it was the two of us in a one person kayak. Some parts were magical, like her laying back on me staring up at the clouds, others a little sad, like when we were still far from the doc and she had had enough. I hope to remember more than the sad parts.

Super Huge Orange or Apricot on Brown

I liked yesterday's orange and we have no shortage of large boxes in the garage, so here is another orange, this time 24" wide.

Orange on Brown

I still have to get to the store to buy more canvas, until then cardboard is my cool pro-earth canvas of choice. This is an orange. I love how they smell, I hate to peel them, I like to eat them when they taste good.

More Paint?

When my daughter paints, the word you will most often hear is "more", pronounced "mow?". She is referring to the paint. How much is enough paint? Mow! We did this one together. I opened an Ebay store/gallery today, you can check it out at:

Start of the Universe in Pink, Green, and Yellow

This painting began as a flower. but it ended up looking more like a big bang thing.

Pear Patterns -- SOLD

The fun of painting at midnight is that you can do the next days painting as the clock strikes 12:01 while you are all warmed up. This was fun to paint, it felt creative.

First Date Pears on Green

Note to self: Buy Pears. I tried to make these pears look more "real". But I may like my pears that look for illustrative better. Reality is stressful.

The Pear Family

I didn't have a pear to paint from so these are from my mind. I think it would have been easier with an actual pear or two.

My Best Surf Friend in Costa Rica

My best surf buddy fulfilled a dream of ours and surfed Costa Rica last week. YEAH KD! This painting was based on a shot of her killin' it on an over head wave in Costa Rica.

Golden Apple

I started this yesterday, and finished today. A friend showed me a painting that I loved of pears, so I tried to recreate it from memory.

Pears II

I'm loving the green on brown color thing and the shape of pears, which started me thinking what 's so wrong with a pear shaped woman?

Green Pear on Brown

Man oh man, I did not want to paint tonight. I'm glad I had to though, because I really like this painting. I painted this green pear on a canvas that my daughter had been playing on, adding all sorts of blobs of color. You know the painting would not be worth seeing if it weren't for the pretty colors showing through. What a fun collaboration.

Pink and Purple

I wonder when, or if, I'll grow out of my pink phase. I loved black for a while, then blue, and when I was little brick red.

Fun with Sidewalk Chalk

Here's a photo of my fun outdoor art experience with my daughter.

Austin Train Bridge Sunny Day Upgrade

I hated the colors on this painting, but I liked the painting, so I changed the colors. Using only my imagination, folks, don't try this at home. :) The colors look better in person.

dots redo #6

Some day I may like this painting, and if not I'll just paint over it again.
