Anywhere, USA


If you were blindfolded and dropped into the middle of this scene, you'd have no idea if you were in Waco, Texas or Arma, Kansas. I think it's kinda scary.

I designed this logo for a new store in Wimberley. They have all sorts of jellies, pickles, salsas, jalapenos, picnic supplies and more. It's a great collection of gourmet food from Texas. The owner did a fabulous job of pulling this store together.

Along with the logo, there is outside art. The past 3 days I have been up on a ladder painting four awnings across the front of the store. There are fruits, vegetables, mugs of beer and glasses of wine. So far, three of them are finished. Today is a rain day.

Over the weekend, th weather was perfect. The humidity was low, the temperatures were in the 80's and the sun was shining. The town was bustling with tourists.

awning art


One last awning to paint. When the rain stops, I'll be back on the ladder. This has been a really fun project. Thanks, Maggie!

springtime in autumn


Along with a 2 year drought, this summer was the hottest on record in the Austin area. The landscape has been brown, dusty and dead for months. Now with cool weather and rain, everything is springtime green. In the next couple of weeks we'll have the first freeze and go back to brown and grey for the winter. I love changing seasons.

downtown Dallas


When I lived in Dallas, I had repeating dreams of sliding down the long, steep angled part of I.M. Pei's Fountain Place building. I always managed to wake up before landing on the ground.

Waiting for the bus. I believe this is Ross Avenue and Ackard Street.

Sioux Gallery


The Sioux Gallery is one of many shops on "The Square" in Wimberley, Texas. This is the original center of town from back in the pioneer days. The Square is now quaint and funky restaraunts and shops for the tourists that visit the area. Most of the buildings are made of native limestone rock. More drawings to come in this series.

The Square in Wimberley , Texas


Left side of a panoramic drawing. This is Wimberley, the a quaint small town with loads of natural beauty. There is no real downtown, but "The Square" is a quircky collection of mostly old buildings for tourist shops and restaurants in the center of town. The Cypress Creek Cafe is one of the original buildings from the times of the pioneer days of the 180o's. Most houses and buildings are built of limestone rock which is very prevelant in this area. Having lived in lots of large, cosmopolitan cities in my life, Wimberley is the perfect small town. I've lived here for 6 years and I do love it here.

occupational hazards


This started as a sketch of a guy doing his laundry and eating a Dairy Queen meal. I changed the background to tell a different story.

Wimberley Cafe


'The Square' in Wimberley, Texas. Locals and tourists both dine here. As a small town, the choices of restaraunts are limited (TexMex being the favorite). This cafe serves breakfast and lunch with the typical diner flare. With great pride, they also carry a nice selection of Blue Bell ice cream.
