This will mean more to my Texas friends than to others. A few days ago many lakes were too low to put a boat in. Now many are over flowing and having to release too much water.

It has been seven years since that May 12 Mother’s Day, 2008. In memory of my precious wife who got to love her grandchildren ever so briefly. Another song I wrote for her has already been shared with family and friends. I now have the courage to share it with everyone else.

Wow! What a wide variety of artistic talents – oils, acrylics, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, jewelry, collage, photography, weaving, watercolor, works in wood, metal…!
I spent the weekend visiting the artists on the North Dallas Studio Tour. On a whim I decided to take photos of the artists with their work. Because of this it took me about four times as long to see the tour! It’s interesting how asking, “May I take your photo?” immediately starts a conversation. But I loved every second.
I did this a few years ago on the White Rock tour (click here to see: White Rock Artists). Unfortunately, I didn’t have pad or pencil to keep track so I don’t have their names with their photos. I apologize to the artists. Click here: NorthDallasArt for more information. I also apologize for the very amateurish photos. It’s the thought that counts, right?
I encourage everyone to go on one of these tours. You’ll see some outstanding talent and get to visit with the artists right in their studio. You might even find some art for your home or for that perfect and unique gift.

I had the pleasure of visiting Holliday Park in Indianapolis and wandered around in the woods on the nature trails stopping briefly to take a photo of some rock steps on the trail. Here they are converted to an acrylic painting.

In April, 2009 I posted a drawing I had done for my church for Easter. Another church contacted me asking permission to use my drawing as the basis for a banner they wanted to do. I agreed. They made some changes and shared the final result. I think it looks really nice.
You can see the original illustration at He Is Risen.

Grandkid who just had a birthday is into Godzilla among the other usual pursuits of an eleven year old boy. I created this Super Hero poster for him to go with his 50-DVD collection of cheesy sci-fi movies. I threw in a box set of Three Stooges movies just for the heck of it.
