I am posting a large 24 x 36 x 2" painting that I painted a few weeks ago.  I don't always post the larger paintings that I do for shows.  I am not very good at photographing large pieces.  This is pretty representative of the work.

I had a wonderful vacation with my family and now feel like I need a vacation from my vacation.  We did volcano hikes through the rain forest,  canyoneered through La Roco canyon, fished, sons surfed, and we all hiked and zip lined through the cloud forest in Monteverde.   We started in the rain forest around Arenal Volcano, then went to Tamarindo beach area and finished up in the cloud forest at 5000 ft elevation in Monteverde.  I will try to share some pictures and information about this beautiful country in the coming posts.

I have been busy since returning preparing for the Art Event at Lipscomb Academy in Nashville this Friday through Sunday.  I LOVE going to Nashville.  I am lucky to stay with a good friend, visit with my artist friends, see previous patrons and meet new ones. I will mostly be featuring my animal pieces.  I will also have one display panel of my beach figurative pieces.  Click on the highlighted Lipscomb phrase to go to the link for the show information.
