Opening Reception for Visual Arts Alliance Exhibit

We had a wonderful evening at the Visual Arts Alliance 27th Open Juried Exhibit at the Williams Tower Gallery. It is a great show, lots of interesting and beautifully crafted works. It is on exhibit until May 28, 2010. I hope you will take the time to go see it. I feel very honored that my watercolor painting, "Teamwork," is in this show. It was painted using source photos that I took at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo while watching the Team Penning Event.

New Family Portrait Commission "Attitude is Everything"

"Attitude is Everything"
15" x 15"
Watercolor on Arches 300 CP

This is a recently completed family portrait commission. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. This family loves to go snowboarding together. They are very outdoorsy, so this fit them to a T. And they are very happy with it! What I love about this image is the attitude of the kiddo in front, ready to tear down the mountain!

Do you have a great family photo that would make an even better watercolor painting? I would love to create a family portrait to be featured in your home or office! Contact me for details.
