Gulf Oyster Shell


There is nothing like slurping down freshly shucked oysters at the beach -- with lots of sand between your toes!  Alas, in Austin, I must sit at an oyster bar.  At least my car won't get sandy....

This Ford Edsel is based on a photograph that a high school friend posted on Facebook during a cross-country trip with his family.  I, of course, requested permission to use his pic.  Not bad for my first painting of a car!

Making Waves


We've all seen them:  paintings that look like they were made by a gorilla that sell for record amounts of money in the art world.  After a particularly frustrating day (and seeing some of those astronomical purchase prices via a fellow artist's Facebook post), I temporarily regressed back to the simpler days of childhood.  Using leftover paint on my palette and my trusty middle finger, I created this seascape fingerpainting.  Enjoy.
