Andrea was very knowledgeable and attentive. It was a fun class, she is at ease teaching and very inclusive of all of the skill levels of her students and was super helpful. Better than any class I took at UT-Arlington . Not to mention she has a charming personality.

Title or Location: Trinity River Audubon Center
This painting was inspired on one of the many beautiful trails at the Trinity River Audubon Center. I recently joined a Dallas Plein Air painting group and this was my first outing. Mesmerized by the morning sun. Inundated by the sounds of nature. It was a blissful experience. It had been so long since I had been with nature and admittedly caught the plain air bug. There was a unifying experience as nature never stopped all around me and neither did I!

I work in sketchbooks 98 of the time with my favorite pens. I prefer to draw live rather than from photos, so at night I find my characters on TV. Watercolor or other mixed media may find its way into the drawing, depending on which sketchbook I used. This was drawn in a Strathmore 500 series mixed media softcover book. The paper takes mixed media extremely well.

Title or Location: Fort Bend County Texas. This fence post stands next to a gate on a friends ranch, just off of Hwy 59 S.
On February 3rd of this year (2024), I was at my music duet partners ranch near Beasley and Rosenberg Texas, just off of Hwy 59 S. We often times go out to the country to rehearse our music when the weather is nice. I?ve driven through the gate and past this post many times before but on this particular day, the sun was shining just so perfectly and the old, rusty, broken chain really captured my attention. I jumped out of the truck and snapped a few photos, knowing I would eventually paint this
