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!

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!
