“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” -Rabindranath Tagore
I love to lay down and get lost in tall prairie grass. This painting is all about the glow of the grass, and the painting is quite yellow even though it photographed much more neutral.

I love prairie flowers, and the way the change every few weeks. This composition was tricky with that one live oak tree, but what a lovely walk to such a beautiful reading spot. Spend a minute under that tree today when things get crazy.
If you are a Texan, as I am, “remember the Alamo” is taught to you from Kindergarten on.
Alamo is the Spanish word for Cottonwood. I prefer to remember these alamos rather than the bloody images of Santa Anna, James Bowie, William Travis, and Davy Crockett fighting it out the bitter end.
