1st Gallery Show in Texas!

This "Woman in White Turban" is one of eight pastel paintings in my show, opening Feb. 7 at the Old Bakery & Emporium in Austin across from the state capitol.  Isn't she beautiful?  I caught her in this beautiful outfit at the DFW Airport; her face has the look of the weary traveler so I imagine home is far away and she has a long way to go to get there!  The other works feature faces and figures of both people and wildlife, completed over this past year.

Glass Ranch, Big Spring, Texas

I love these guys -- no, girls!  All are Angus from the Big Spring ranch of former Texas Tech roommate Helen Glass and husband Lynn.  We caught the herd late one afternoon at feeding time and I was inspired.  Hope to move to the goats and sheep we fed soon after we took care of these beautiful girls!  The first one is titled, "No Bull," just to emphasize their feminity.  See all work at new web site:

Best Art Season Yet!

Maybe it was my new studio in Martha's Vineyard, but the season was a terrific one in terms of reception and sales.  I had a new studio open house and sold the sister painting to the one above.  I had my first painting published as part of the launch of "The Chappy Ferry Book," first at the Old Sculpin and then Island-wide.  Gallery sales were good over the summer and I had my two-week show over Labor Day for the first time, which also went well.  My work will continue at the Old Sculpin Gallery in Edgartown through mid-October.  Thanks to family and friends for your support and interest!
