Art and Medicine

Yes, that is a cello and a harp. Yes, the music got into my painting, and yes, I am grateful to be participating in Baylor Hospital’s amazing Arts and Medicine Program.

Day at the Beach

5″x7″ oil on panel. Plein air. Bahía de Banderas, Mexico.

This was late last fall, but I thought you could use a day at the beach today. We enjoyed: white sand beaches, turquoise water, perfect waves, and fresh shrimp tacos and a cold beer for lunch. I did 4 paintings that day, this one was my favorite. In addition to the many wonderful memories, from time to time I create a small fantasy of the octopus or fish that might be wearing my glasses I lost in the surf that day. Perhaps a crab grabbed them to adorn his abode, or maybe they are on their way to becoming sea glass.
