Some of my pre-surgery paintings

Surviving Surgery

So, I haven't been at the easel in a few weeks since having my shoulder replaced. Yes, I am now cyborg/bionic/robot...all of the above.

It's nice to get back into painting again. I feel like I've been reunited with a long lost friend. I will be sharing some images soon.

howdy all

Howdy all,

Just wanted to take a minute and talk about how much I appreciate those of you who have purchased my work.   Wow, long sentence!  I'm wore out.  But I digress.  With the economy the way it has been, I consider each sale a miracle.  I wouldn't want anyone to think I take those sales for granted.  I am thankful, and my family is also.  In the words of some guy,  Thanks man!  I am out!

The Longhorn Extravaganza

"Pushin' 'em Thru"
24 x 60

In September I am headed to Oklahoma City to show my work at "The Longhorn Extravaganza".  I've been working on art for the show. I will have about 35 pieces on display, including painting and sculpture. This is a larger piece that will be featured there.

I hope to see a lot of people there.   This show is right up my alley seeing as my favorite era is the old timey cowboy, 1880 to 1925. There abouts. 

It would be great to hear any feedback or interest from folks. I know that opinions are like (you know what), but I would like to know yours.
