It's Hard Getting Old!

Yes, another elephant! This one really inspired me with all his poor wrinkles and sags! Do you think the inspiration to paint this elephant came from my BIG birthday coming up this summer? I think so. The title is perfect and so true!

Have a great weekend!

Birds Birds Birds

The endangered Golden Cheeked Warbler lives around the San Antonio area and is being invaded by building, building, building! Too many houses going up around here! I never knew he was so cute until I looked him up and painted him.
Bellow are two more Ruby Throated Hummingbirds. Both are small, 5 by 5 and framed in a goldish frame. They will go to the gallery downtown.
It's Fiesta here! Beautiful weather and lots of partying!

First Annual Juried Show and Exhibition

Last night was the Juried Competition that was judged by Lorenzo Chavez, a great pastel artist from Colorado. It was lots of fun! I won an Honorable Mention in the animal category for "Elephant Eyes". I also got the People's Choice award. ( I had lots of friends there!!!!) Thanks, you all! I am thrilled with the Honorable Mention since this was my first juried competition.
The owl above my head won first place.
