San Pedro Creek series | After The Rains

After the rains, San Pedro Creek, 40in x 55in, Oil on Canvas.

For several years I have been working on a body of work to bring attention to our community’s rivers and creeks ... to preserved them and not see them become areas for illegal dumping or havens for collecting trash.  San Pedro Creek borders the Lone Star Art District, where I have a working art studio and artist incubation space.  After a good rain, I go to the banks of the creek and see what the waters bring downstream.  From this, I’ve created the San Pedro Creek series of paintings using tar, aluminum, gold leaf, copper and white pigments on canvas.

The Anniversary Gift

My wife asked me to make something that for our anniversary so I made diner and gave her a painting... after the dinner. We sat and talked about all the blessings we had throwout the years. 

The painting stayed with us for several years and then one morning she tells me, "I want to tell the world how much I love you" ok... I asked what should I do, sell the anniversary painting so we can celebrate our love with everyone". 

...So I did, this painting is in a private collection.
