I am continuing on my path of painting abstracted landscapes, using both brushwork and multiple types of palette knife application. Experimenting is SO MUCH FUN. I just get into a zone and paint up a storm. I love the looseness of this and the vibrant colors. I painted this scene from the CA wine country a few years back in a small format, in a more traditional landscape style. But I am loving this new direction. What do you think??

Amy Hillenbrand, Bill Oakey and I installed 25 paintings today in two large display cases in the Scarborough Building main 6th Street lobby here in Austin. Was fun and looks so wonderful. Will let you know if we are able to plan a reception. Hope you'll have a chance to view my 16 paintings, including 8 new works. It's up through early to mid April. Hoping to catch some SXSW attendees.

Hi Neighbor, well not really only if we were counting being in the same state. Nice painting. Looks like your having fun, keep it up. I'm down here below Houston by the way. Ever come down to Galveston?

Thanks, all! Yes, Randall I do occasionally get to Galveston as my husband is a BOI (born on island). Your ocean / surf paintings are fab!

Looks great, Debbie. I love the colors. I totally understand the attraction of abstract and find myself being pulled in that direction too.

Have a great show!
