HOW THIS CAME TO BE

This new painting is named DANCING WITH MORNING GLORIES. It went through a number of titles. One I liked a lot was WHILE I WAS ON THE PHONE. Titles kept coming to me while the painting emerged. But that's it really. It is all just a dance.

SEEING THE PAINT, IN PERSON

At the BEE CAVES ART FOUNDATION, a person can see the paint. Paint is different from the digital reproduction of paint and paintings.These two will be on display for a couple of months at the Hive Gallery at the Bee Cave art Foundation. The one with the doll and Quan Yin is named LOVE AND HOMEGROWN TOMATOES. It's paintied on 1 inch thick cardboard. Oops. The other, one named JUMP!, is my homage to dichotomies everywhere. Notice the paint in the upclose details of the paintings.
