I think PLAYING OUTSIDE is my new motif. I sold the painting with that title at WEST Austin Studio Tour. It was a backyard scene with a white squirrel. White squirrels are a variety native to Canada and Maine, up north where it snows a lot. But some have been transplanted to Austin so we see them from time to time.
I've changed the preparatory drawing for the Agatha painting to include children playing in the sand dunes. It really adds poignancy to the scene of that magnificent agave.
