This is a San Antonio landmark, and the scene of many weddings. Two of my children were married here, as well as several friends. While working the River Arts Gallery on a Saturday, I have seen as many as 5 or 6 in a single day...about every two hours. Afterwards the tourists and wedding parties mingle together outside. It's really quite wonderful to watch.

On an early morning drive through the city, I observed how the low-angled sunlight on the many fire hydrants created shadows and reflections. This observation posed a challenge for me. I moved the fire hydrant away from the concrete landscape to a garden's edge. A viewer of this painting will have one of two questions. "Why would anyone want to paint a fire hydrant?" or "Where's the dog?"
This 18" by 23 1/2" watercolor was fun to do.

This hisbiscus is painted on the back of another painting. I never meant it for anything but a practice. My wife, however, had to have it because it matched the curtains in her sewing room.
These sunflowers in a pair of old shoes were sitting in the corner of a landing half-way up 28 zig-zaging stairs. My sister-n-law used them for pots so her husband would have to get a new pair of work boots. This was just a thumbnail that might turn into something else, but it lives with the owner of the stairs.
