"Wild Billy Kirk"

A long time teacher and friend died recently. He was a special person who made a big impact on me and my painting. He died soon after he had a painting accepted in the Oil Painters of America national exhibit this year. He was so excited and I was proud of him. He loved western painting and went to reenactment events for resource material. This pastel painting is of him in his cowboy garb.

"Santa Cruz by the Bay"

My daughter used to live in Santa Cruz, CA and this is a scene that was a block or two from her house. I understand why it was so hard for her to return to northern Alabama. The ocean has a mysterious pull.
