The Garden Wren

This is the first entry into 2010, and my first painting in probably a year. I've had a long, dry spell. I hope I've broken the spell.

La Villita Church

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.


I love to paint clowns.
This one is Dexter.

At Garden's Edge

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.

Garden Shoes

This was done on a full sheet of watercolor paper, and is the painting that resulted from the the small thumbnail in the entry below.

Small Blooms

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.
