Sculpture, paintout, and workshop

Arab Spring
bronze on granite
I finished my Arabian horse and am pleased with the way it turned out. I had a lot of help and input from friends and other "horse" people, especially my friend Sabine Higgins. She really knows her horses.
Kent doing a pastel of one of the houses on the  Gingerbread Tour of Homes.
The Paint Historic Waxahachie paintout finished up Sunday. I finished nine paintings. It was a really great event. I saw and painted with so many great friends and so many great paintings were produced by them. My friend Ted Clemens won best of show, Kent Brewer won first place, and Olivette Hubler won second place.
Five of my 8 x 10 paintings done during the week

Three 4 x 6 and one more of my 8 x 10s

The sculptor John Coleman doing a demo at his workshop in Oklahoma City.
 I attended a great workshop with the sculptor John Coleman in Oklahoma City at the National cowboy and Western Heritage Museum.It has been a really great workshop and  John is a super teacher.
One of the sculptures I started, an almost life size bust of an American Indian.


  1. Vous êtes un artiste accompli...
    J'aime beaucoup la sculpture qui est très complémentaire à la peinture... J'aime dire la même chose de la cuisine!...
    La sculpture que vous avez commencé est déjà formidable. J'ai hâte de la voir achevée.
    Merci pour votre gentille proposition... Vous ne seriez pas si loin j'aurais été ravie de peindre parmi vous.
    Gros bisous

  2. Hello there Douglas!... Bloomin' great work in both brush and bronze!

    You are a busy man and "out there"... doin' it! That's the joy of this art business: being with friends and kickin' butt doin' what we love!

    That last warrior piece is really superb! Great musculature and texture in the clay!

    Keep up the great work!
    Warmest regards,
