Have so enjoyed painting my beach series. I took some inspiring pics this summer on South Padre Island, and I have a bunch from my trip to the Mayan Riviera. I try to capture the evocative spirit of these exotic regions so we can remember the magic right here at home.

Finished this triptych a month ago and finally posting. Was a gift for Jillian our daughter-in-law. I love hay bales and plan to paint a bunch more, after my beach series. I love the beach and our farm lands. I am Texan after all.
