Fence Line Road

Posted 11 CommentsPosted in PAINTINGS

On my frequent drives to Houston I pass by an area that I think is interesting. There is a flat pasture where cattle graze. Immediately beside it is a hilly wooded area. A dirt road runs at the edge of the woods, separating the contrasting landscapes. The road follows the contour of the hills just […]

Heart of Flowers

Posted Posted in PAINTINGS

My youngest granddaughter decided to completely redo her bedroom. That included painting over the murals I painted which were a bunch of frogs doing things all around the world.

I depicted a Mermaid Mom teaching her little boy how to swim. Do we call him a Merboy; a Merkid? Click on […]
