I woke in the middle of the night recently with a smile on my face and a whimsical feeling in my heart. My thoughts raced to the awareness that it was just a dream. Sorrow swept over me. As I lay there I tried desperately to remember ever moment of the dream. After a while I fell back to sleep. As the new day broke and I started on my journey through it I couldn't get the image or the feeling of the dream out of my head. It soon became apparent to me that I would have to paint it. This is when" I Dreamed I Had Butterfly Wings" came to life.

On Friday, June 13th, 2014 there was an amazing sight in the sky. One that they called the Honey Moon because of the remarkable color of the full moon as the sunset at just the right time. One that was so breath taking I vowed to paint it. This is the direct result of that beautiful evening. Combined with the timing of the date being Friday the 13th, this will not happen again for many years. Now it will happen every time someone looks at this painting.
40"w X 50"h acrylic on canvas
Texas is a state that has always stood strong and independent in their way of thinking. Rich with resources from the vast lands of ranches and crops, the oil soaked soil, the wealth of the cities and industries, to the vast uniqueness of the different arts.
Texas may have its own turbulences amongst politics, religion, destructive practises of fracking, and even the powerful storm entities that roll across with as much beauty as they have force. But make no mistake, trying to make the scales of equality tilt in even the slightest, Texas will stand their ground for what is right. The earth below the scales will open up revealing that hell itself will be waiting.

Hanging to the edge of the cliff, this tree has somehow survived for many years. Encountering all types of weather conditions, it still managed to thrive. Leaning and twisting its way through life forming the appearance of a dancing tree.
Sunset in Paradise
16"w X 20"h, acrylic on canvas
Who doesn't enjoy a colorful sunset? I personally can not count how many times I have stared in amazement at them. Mezmerized by the beautiful colors and fading charm. To add it to be somewhere in paradise seem to be natural.

Going with the Flow
Acrylic on canvas
3ft X 4ft
An impending storm above the waters crest is brewing. Tossing waves and causing a torrent of currents below. The sea creatures, in this case golden colored Red Fish, do not mind. It is a chance to embrace the excitement and energy to enjoy the ride!
My interpretation of life and it's ever changing events can always be challenging. "When everything goes right, it's a perfect day. But when things go wrong is when the adventure begins!" -> My quote, and the way I choose to live my life.
Reservations for Three
48" X 36" Acrylic on Canvas
Waiting patiently for his bud to show up,
an intruder approaches, he turns
and gives the look that is
understood instantly. These two
poles are being saved. After all it is
a reservation for three.
I'm Still Here
