My mind is kind of in crazy mode today. I just made a decision to join one of my sons during part of his two month tour of Asia.  I will join him in a couple of weeks to tour Thailand, Myanmar and Vietnam. How cool is that?

Mac kind of has the Gary Coleman questioning look from "Different Strokes".  This is a commissioned piece a friend had me paint for her daughter's boyfriend.  Mac always has one ear that stands up.  Pretty cute, eh?

I really do not want these lyrics in my head the rest of the day.  Aerosmith's song just popped into my mind as I finished this painting.  This is painted on a 6 x 8 x 2" canvas.sold

My next show is in Asheville, NC!  A favorite place to visit.  It is the 44th Annual Village Art and Craft Fair held in Biltmore Village on the beautiful grounds of the Cathedral of All Souls.  The dates are August 6th and 7th.  If you have never visited Asheville or this area you need to.

I painted this 10 x 10" to accompany a cow mug a patron purchased from from me a year ago.  Sometimes you need two cow paintings.  Or more!!

I have enjoyed taking a few days off.  I have a full line up of shows that begin again in August. Painting is mostly pleasurable for me but it is good to slow down the pace and take some time to do other things.

I have several folks on an email list that have shared their desire to take a workshop with me. I am working on finding a time to schedule one or two at my home.  E mail me if you would like to be included on this list.  I will notify these individuals before announcing it.  I can only accommodate nine students so classes fill quickly.
