Busy, busy, busy.

Arab Spring
Work in Progress
  This has been one of my busiest and most productive springs. I have sculpted, painted, and participated in many  different shows and events. The most recent show was a few weeks ago at the Southwest Gallery in Dallas where I participated in the Outdoor Painters' Society's Southwest Salon and quick draw at White Rock Lake. It was a great event and a lot of fun seeing all my friends who participated.

  This  coming weekend I have an art show at David Dike Fine Art in Dallas. I will be doing a sculpture demo from about  2:00 til 8:00. I will have most of my sculptures on display there. I will be working on a jaguar sculpture and possibly starting a new one.
   I just found out that I have been invited to participate in the Fort Worth Historical Society's Preservation Is The Art Of The City Show. I have several other shows that I have applied to, that I hope to hear from soon.
Horses at the Benbrook Stable.
  I am still working on my Arabian horse sculpture so I have been spending a lot of time at the stable near my house. There are two Arabians but most of the horses there are quarter horses, and I am really getting inspired to sculpt one of those after I finish  the Arabian. I have enjoyed the time I have spent there sculpting the horses and all the activity of the stable. The people there really love their horses.
Roses and iris in my backyard.
  In addition to all the painting and sculpting, I am really enjoying the great weather we have had and working in my yard. I have to say that this has been a great year for flowers and gardens in general. I have not had a chance to go fishing or camping yet this spring but it is on my list of things to do,and of course I'll bring my paints.
  And when it rains we have a great new Exhibit of 70+ Impressionist paintings at the Kimbel Art Museum. I have seen it several times already.
