I put "puppy love" on my mantle so that I could live with it a while. It helps me to see problems. I decided to upgrade his horns and make it so that the end of his tail did not look like a lobster claw. Check him out on my previous post to see the changes.

I took this image when I visited Oregon last Fall. The bluebonnets were added for a Texas slant. I was juried into the Woodlands Waterway Show in Houston for my animals so that is what I will be exhibiting at the show.

I am painting at a fund raiser for the University of Alabama at Birmingham's Comprehensive Cancer Center this Saturday night. It is one of the nation's leading cancer research and treatment centers. The fund raiser is called "Art Blink" because the artists have and hour and a half to complete a painting. Attendees bid on the paintings to raise money for the cancer center's fund for excellence. (research, family assistance, etc) It is a black tie affair so the only downside is that I have to dress up. Even so....I am honored and excited to be a part of this affair. I am going to paint a large rooster that will be auctioned. This one is a warm up and is a 6 x 12 x 2".sold

I have really enjoyed painting still life again. I need to switch gears and prepare for the workshop at my home this weekend. We will be focusing on painting animals the first day and children the second day.

I bought a few roses yesterday and am enjoying painting them. I intentionally painted this a little looser. I love painting on an elongated canvas. This one is a 12 x 24 x 2".

A few pictures from our Costa Rica trip. The first two are shots of canyoneering in the Los Rocos canyon. Our favorite thing the whole trip.
Lots and lots of cows everywhere. Any small space of land would host some. In the middle of our first resort.
A sloth in the Rain forest. They stay in a tree eating for a week or more. They only go down once a week for their constitutional. We got it to look at us by whistling. Their predators are eagles. I have a mean eagle whistle. If they have a baby and it falls out the tree, they would rather have another one than to go down and get it. That is not only lazy, that is bad.
