I was thrilled to see that the picture I submitted of the Republic of Texas print I bought from Old Try made their blog. They were even nice enough to put in a few nice words for me. If you are Southern, then you will love their stuff!!! Affordable letter press prints. So cool. Here is the blog entry .

Today I took down "Alamo Plaza" from Frisco City Hall. The good news is that the Art In the Atrium show is not over yet. I actually sold it and and needed to get it off the wall before the buyer moves out of town. I replaced it with my new water tower painting "Hometown" The Art In the Atrium show runs through August. So if you are in the Frisco area, stop by and check it out. It is on the first floor near the library entrance.

Most of you know that I started up a t-shirt company with a co-worker of mine back in September. Most all of the designs are hand drawn by me and they usually have a Texas theme. We have really had a blast designing, promoting, and selling these t-shirts. We have just started a blog as another avenue to get the word out about our new products and also to highlight things we like. We will have lots of Texana goodness on the new blog. I would love for y'all to jump on board and follow us!

I thought I would share this picture of where my mixed media piece "Lone Star Gusher" ended up. I had visited the owners in this loft condo in Fort Worth before I started the piece to get direction for the theme and color combos they were wanting. It was created to be a compliment to the other artwork on the left wall. The clients sent me this image to show me how it turned out once it was framed up to match the other piece. I'm really glad they did! I love to see where my artwork ends up....really cool.

Two weeks ago at the Frisco Square - Arts In The Square art show we picked up this really cool painting. It is an oil painting of a prickly pear cactus. It measures 10 x 14. The painting is by a young artist named Erika Huddleston. We fell in love with her stuff and couldn't leave without adding to our collection. Make sure and check out her website. We also bought a few other pieces this weekend from another local artist named Walter Kane. I'll post those pictures upon their arrival.

Lone Star Gusher - 24 x 40
I finally finished this one up and delivered it to its home in Fort Worth, Texas. This was a fun piece to work on and the largest collage painting I have ever done.

Here is a little bit of new information for y'all that I am thrilled to announce. I have partnered up with a good friend Cory, to form a new little business called Texowa Designs. I've been wanting to branch out into some home decor stuff for a few years now, but I just never seemed to have enough time to put it all together. Cory is from Iowa and he mentioned wanting to move away from his concert poster gig to do some more stuff for the home and office. It was the perfect match at the perfect time. We are starting out with some of the stuff that we know best : Texas, Iowa, music, beer, and history. To keep up with all this "Texowa Goodness" Look for us here:

I am so thrilled to announce that my artwork and my t-shirts will both be for sale at the brand new Gruene Trading Company! I am from New Braunfels, Texas so this is really a treat for me. The Gruene Trading Company is located next door to my all time favorite Texas spot - Gruene Hall. I will have my Holga prints, acrylic transfers, and some larger Holga prints on canvas available. I will also have my t-shirts that I designed for sale in the store as well. The store is set to open in the coming weeks. If you head down to Gruene make sure and check out this great new store!

Above is my new t-shirt design. I was drawing a tumbleweed and realized I could make it take the shape of Texas and use the Texas rivers as branches. I actually drew this while I was sitting in a gym waiting for my son's basketball game to start. The shirts come in two colors and I've got them for sale in my shop. On a side note, I should have that commission piece ready to roll soon. I'll post a progress picture in a few days.

24" x 40" on handmade cradled board
I put down a few coats of paint and laid in some acrylic transfers of some text and an oil well. My next steps will consist of adding some color and maybe some stars. I'm really pleased with how this is shaping up. I hope to be finished with this one in the next week or so.

Full view - 24 x 40
Here is a first look at a commission piece that I got started on this week. It measures 24" x 40" and is on a cradled board that I made myself. I started with a background of vintage Texas ephemera. The client suggested a few specific colors and an oil well in the center, other than that, it's free game. I'm super excited about this one. It is also the largest piece I've ever done. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Man, I've been a bad blogger. Oh well, what are ya gonna do? I've been focusing a lot of my time to my new t-shirt company and some new designs for the shirts. I'll share those soon. I've also got a really neat commission opportunity coming up which I'm going to be getting more info on tomorrow. I'll keep you posted on the progress of that. In the meantime here is a little oil pastel landscape I did a few weeks back on some scrap wood. It measures 8" x 13"

Bird on Canvas - oil 12 x 15
I couldn't resist. I saw a post on Facebook from the Brice McCasland fan page letting me know that they had some new artwork in their Etsy shop. I clicked of course to check it out and I found this beauty! I have been wanting to get one of Brice's original pieces for a while now....and I kick myself at some of the ones I've passed up on a few years ago. Brice is a local artist with great style. I can't wait to get this up in the house.

Do you remember this post from July? I had mentioned that I thought it would make a cool t-shirt. Well, today that thought became a reality! I'm digging it! You can pick one up here.

Last night we had the opening reception for the Frisco Art In the Atrium show held at the George A. Purefoy building in Frisco, Texas. It was a great evening overall. This year's show is one of the best yet. The local talent is outstanding. There are over 70 pieces in this year's show covering five floors in the atrium of the city hall building. I was pretty happy with the location of my artwork....it is on the first floor right next to public library entrance. It is probably the best spot in the house for traffic. I'm hoping my artwork will become a big hit with all the stay at home moms that drag their kids to the library every day! Ha! The show will run through August. I even got a shout out from the school district website.

This year I only had one piece selected for the show....but I'm really excited about the one that made the cut. The reception is Wednesday, November 2nd from 7-9 PM at the Frisco City Hall / Library Complex. If you are around stop by and see me. The show will run through August of 2012.

Here are a few new pieces I did a few weeks ago. I have sold a few of these lately and will get my current inventory up on my ETSY shop this week. At one point a few weeks ago, I had about 30 unique acrylic transfer pieces. I really dig these. They are fun to do!
