lonely at the top

After climbing his way to the top the giraffe did not want to relinquish his newly found power knowing it could crumble at any time.

Pinky and BS

While Pinky created numerous masterpieces BS sensing a creative presence and feeling left out stopped by to paint his own masterpiece. Of course this studio did not allow the new masterpieces to leave the premises.

Ron Hoover

Watercolors 2004-07

Visited with my good friend Ron Hoover, lives in Houston, on August 23rd and 24th, absolutely the most under recognized artist in the State of Texas. Ron was in good spirits, now that he had a new place to live, and that he had sold more than 10 works on paper in the last couple of months.

Tracy Hicks' and Helen Altman's opening reception in Galveston

Helen's "Circle of Friends"

Helen Altman's work

Over 700 people attended the opening reception on Saturday night August 23rd at the Galveston Arts Center. I could not be more happy for 2 of the most deserving artists working today. I would love to see Tracy have a major retrospective of his work, including the work that first attracted me to his art in 1991.

For Karla

Galveston Arts Center

I made to Galveston on Friday night August, 22nd to visit Tracy on the eve of his new exhibition at the Galveston Arts Center. Met some of Tracy's friends that live in Galveston. This was the friendliest group of people I have ever met; Karla Klay (artist boat), her soon to be husband Kris Benson, and Beth Thomas (Galveston College). I plan to keep in contact with my new friends.

Bruce Schiefelbein Studio Visit

This guy's art continues to amaze me.

The Craft Guild of Dallas Fundraiser: Bust

I stopped by the Craft Guild of Dallas for their fundraiser in hopes of picking up a new coffee mug. The place was a zoo - too many people and so disorganized. I tried to buy that mug but - after standing in line for 20 minutes - they wanted to just write me a ticket to take to another line that was twice as long.
