Basket Flowers are some of my favorites, easily mistaken for thistles, but take another look, they don’t have stickers, the flowers are about twice as large and the fragrance is very sweet. Basket Flowers line the Highways and Pastures of central Texas from May to July and sometimes form huge colonies.

This was inspired on my morning walk with my dogs! This sunlit road leads to the back of our house but I made a few changes. I painted our house from the front and changed our garage to a Barn.

Wild Turkeys are very abundant in Central Texas but if you go looking for them you will probably be disappointed. However if you are only looking for "a nice tree" to paint you might just stumble on to a flock of Wild Turkeys. Observe quickly because they won't say put for long!

This title is the result of my annual contest to name one of my Paintings. This scene was inspired out at our Ranch by the Longhorn Drinking at the Edge of our Stock Tank and I added the others and cleaned up the background a little!

The Road and Butte are west of Rock springs, Texas and the old Ford Truck and Tree were between Kerrville and Vanderpool, Texas and They all seemed to go together.

This painting was inspired right out my back door here at the Ranch after one of our Spring Storms. I made up everything else in this picture except the sky!

This Title is the result of my 2009 Contest to Name this Painting and the winning title was submitted by Carolyn Barnett of Wimberly, Texas! I found this grove of live oaks just off of State Highway 123 north of Czestochowa, Texas complete with the Cattle which I changed to White Faced Herefords for more visibility. I added the Bluebonnets, Cactus and little red roofed house!

I was driving down the highway when I happened to glance to the side and see a couple of farmers on their modern tractors talking over the fence. I thought this had some potential so I recomposed the scene using a couple of antique tractors that I saw at the Hamilton Antique Tractor Pull. For those of you who arent into Antique Tractors the Rivalry between the fans of John Deere (Green Tractor) and Farmall (Red Tractor) is sometimes quite intense. So if these two guys with their extreme differences of opinion can be friends, why can't those Muslims and Jews get along?

I sat out in public and painted this painting from memory while I was showing my work at the big Antiques Fair at Round Top!

This title is the result of my annual contest to name one of my Paintings. I found this church somewhere between Lake Jackson and Columbus several years ago and it's been at the back of my mind as a Painting Subject for years.The road is from the Anchor X Ranch near Lampassas, Texas and I decided to add the Bluebonnets In anticipation of what was a great wildflower show this last spring!

Available for purchase:

Armadillos are not very colorful so I placed this one in some Bluebonnets and Indian Paint Brushes. Makes me wonder if these two flowers together might have been an inspiration for the colors of the Texas Flag. I have no trouble photographing Armadillos because they are almost blind and easy to get close to.

My Latest Original "Back Off" This will be published on my 2014 Texas Wildlife Calendar I photographed these 2 Cougars at the Waco Zoo and one of them snarled at me as I was taking pictures. I'm glad I was outside their area. Cougars are making a strong comeback in Texas, I suspect it's because of the explosion in the Feral Hog population causing an abundance of easy prey.

This cliff is near Rock Springs on the way to the Devil's River State Natural Area and is typical of lots of places in the Hill Country. I was attracted to the patterns made by years of running water on the face of the cliff ans added this Longhorn Steer to lend a bit of realism so folks wouldn't think I was doing Abstract Art!

The Baker Hotel is on the Historic Bankhead Highway in Mineral Wells, Texas and opened in 1929. The Mineral Waters from the area were said to have healing properties and the Baker Hotel was built to accommodate the large number of people coming to bathe there. The Baker was host to the Elite of the Nation and its Ballrooms featured the top names in entertainment of the era. The hotel closed in 1972 but the street floor continued to be retail space until 2000. Plans are underway to restore this National Historic Landmark!

This is almost a nightly scene on our porch. Our cats sit and hiss from a distance as these Masked Bandits (Racoons) raid their food dish.

The Bankhead Hotel is in Strawn, Texas and so far it is the only place that I've found that carries the Bankhead Name. The brick street in made of bricks from the nearby Ghost Town of Thurber. The hotel in no longer in operation bu seems to be fairly well maintained on the outside.

The Bar-L is one of only 2 places in Texas that will bring a beer to your car due to being Grandfathered when the law changed.Judging from the design of the place it is definitely Classic 50's Style!

I was in Hico , Texas when I discovered this "59 Chevy"; which was undoubtedly designed by a fan of "Batman"; then a few miles down the road near Fairy, I found this barn. I thought the Chevy ought to be in the barn and I made the barn red because I was going to include this painting in my 1992 Battered Barns Calendar and I figured that a Barn Calendar should have at least one Red Barn!
