October Sail

12″x9″ pastel on sanded paper

The State Fair Regatta happened this weekend at White Rock Lake. The boats were so beautiful scattered on the lake. No wind may be a sailor’s nightmare, but it makes an artist’s job easier.

Please enjoy a celebration of pink paintings this month, in honor of breast cancer awareness. I paint for my friends and family who have fought the good fight against cancer, for their families, and for all caregivers who help along with the journey toward a healthy self (body, soul, and spirit). In my strokes of pink, are prayers of strength and healing.

Summer Sail

“To reach a port, we must sail – sail, not tie at anchor – sail, not drift.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt

Whatever port you want to reach this summer, remember, you won’t get there by drifting or staying tied to an anchor.

Dallas: Inside Out – A Sailor’s Perspective

10″x8″ oil on panel

Dallas has a beautiful lake right in the center of the city.  White Rock Lake.  It has a path that goes all around, about 10 miles of pedaling (or running) to circumnavigate.  Most of us enjoy this treasure of wildlife, beauty and community from the shores.  We cook out, picnic, run, bike, play, and the lucky…paint.  The sailers however, are looking back at us.   They see Dallas from the inside out.
