After a hard day on the range, this cowboy's doggies were set free.

This is from my South Western phase in the 90's. I used tissue paper over Arches watercolor paper to create a rough texture to express a rugged composition.

I needed to come up with something special for my sister's December birthday.

She loves tattoos,

nude portraits,

her birth flower a Poinsettia,

and she loves her niece.

Every tat has a meaning. The heart and dagger depicts true love never dies. This particular style would be considered "Sailor Jerry" old school.

Now that I look back on that cold day in December when we had the photo shoot. My daughter was a really good sport about putting up with the brisk weather and ME.


a blast from my past

Title: Hide and Seek, 1990
Watercolor, 20" x 18"

I was digging through some of my things in storage, and I ran across this watercolor painting with cow skull and rattle snake. I can't believe it's been 19 years since I painted this. It was signed with my married name before I took my maiden name back.

The texture of this was achieved by laying tissue paper over aches watercolor paper. Yea, I was a texture freak even back then.

Hope you all have a relaxing Sunday before tomorrow's Monday grind.
