I’m honored to say that I have 5 pieces on display [featured below] in the Grapevine Art Project‘s Juried Art Exhibit in the Tower Gallery inside the Grapevine Convention and Visitor’s Center located at 636 S. Main Street in downtown Grapevine, Texas.
The Free Exhibit runs April 6-26, 2018 and is full of art encompassing a range of mediums: jewelry, ceramics, photography, painting, block printing, textiles and so much more! If something catches your eye, guess what — it’s for sale too! Gallery hours coincide with the hours of the Visitor’s Center itself.

As part of a new initiative, GAP is raising money to be used for an Art Scholarship Fund to help support a graduating senior for our local Grapevine Colleyville Independent School District. On the evening of April 14th there will be a Wine Trail drawing for some nice items, and a Silent Auction. The next Saturday on April 21 there will be another Silent Auction during the Artist’s Reception from 5-7pm.

Unfortunately for me, I will not be at the Artist Reception on April 21st, since it happens to coincide with my appearance at the Main ST Fort Worth Arts Festival. But many of the other artists will be on hand to talk about their art and process, plus there’s free refreshments too.So if you’re not visiting me at my booth in Fort Worth, then I’d recommend you pop in for an evening of art!
In addition to the peacocks at Mayfield Park, there were also some cottage gardens, and ponds at the facility.

This weekend on Saturday June 10, 2017, the gallery is having a special themed show “Art & Food Products” from 7pm – 11pm, I’ll be on hand for at least the first couple of hours. Feel free to stop on by and say hi, and check out all the art on hand.
I am a big believer that no space is too small for art. Whether it’s your office in a row of cubicles, a locker, or a wee little nook, you can always fill it with things that inspire and move you.
In that spirit, I’ve put together a bunch of mini-frames, with 3×3 inch prints inside them of my photos, which I’ll be selling at my booth in the Foust Event Center for $10 a piece this upcoming weekend (May 19-21, 2017) at Main Street Days in Grapevine, Texas. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s available:
The Cleburne Camera Club’s 2017 Photo Contest and Exhibition Sale has an embarrassment of riches with striking photos from a range of photographers, including some very talented youth. And I’m not just saying that because I have 3 pieces in the show.
Awards were announced at the Opening Day reception on April 29th. The show runs through May 26th, and is free and open to the public for viewing from Monday – Saturday during 10am – 4pm daily at the JN Long Cultural Arts Complex located at 425 Granbury Street in Cleburne, Texas.

What has slowly become tradition is trekking across the Texas Hillcountry every Spring and Summer, in hopes of finding magical vistas, flora and fauna to snap in my viewfinder. On one of the legs of my recent photography trip, I got lost somewhere between San Saba, Cherokee, and Lampasas on April 6, 2017. So there I was in the Texas Hillcountry near sunset when I came across a large herd of deer. I caught this image of a very pregnant doe, and I adore the painterly effect of this photograph.
