Jordan's Woods Painting

Here's a closeup of Jordan's Woods, which is in my current solo show. Find it for sale at and come to my special art and wine evening March 28 at Crisp Wine Beer Eatery on Research Forest in The Woodlands. I'd love to see you there!


Paint Pots

I plopped this plant into a paint pot temporarily and realized I like it! Maybe I need to add a new business...


I like it!

Crisp Solo Show

Here I am in Crisp Wine Beer Eatery explaining what the Chinese characters in my painting mean. Come out to Crisp on Research Forest for my solo show at their Legendary Tasty Tuesday wine tasting 6:00-9:00 on March 28. 


Leaves Painting

Another go at this big boy. When they're 36"x48" or bigger I have to paint outside. Gorgeous day for outside work! This one is in the same series as 'Enter;' same theme, different color scheme. 

These colors are so pretty, I'm excited about finishing.  Getting close.

Teeny Tiny Art Time

This means 'perfume,' and you can clearly see the plant from which perfume originates. I adore Chinese calligraphy and learning the language.


An Artist's Bookshelf

Books. An extremely small sampling of my books.  Love them.  I read a LOT.


Solo Show

Mark your calendars... my show is coming up! This show fills the place with 28 of my paintings, which represent two years of my work.  I would love to see you come out to support me!

The Eyes Have It

Here's looking at you. I combined acrylics and archival Pitt pens for this fascinating piece. For sale at, and there you can also see the entire painting. 


Mixed Acrylics

Mixed and ready to go. These are Matisse tube acrylics, which are quite thick. I needed more viscosity to flesh out my idea so added a Golden drying retarder and matte medium, and a little water.  These paints are ready to MOVE! No brushes allowed, it'll all be hands and palette knives.

Into My Work

I really get in to my work. (It's the painting that counts.) 



Encouragement from Walt

🐭 What!? Encouragement for the day, a freaky fact about Walt Disney, on my painting.

Dr Seuss on My Painting

Dr Seuss quote on my leaf painting. Pretty inspirational if you ask me! Painting available at

Leaf Mono-Print

This is a closeup of one of my leaf mono-prints. I laid down the colors in layers on YUPO, a virtually indestructible synthetic paper which is non-absorbent. Because of these properties, I can get these cool effects and super luminous jewel tones. The gold of the leaf print looks like it's floating on top. For sale at
