I haven’t added the water yet the rocks are in first. I have a round watercolor palette for sand stone.
Zion Narrows is a watercolor painting using an old photo from my library. The top half has four or five layers of watercolors. Tomorrow the bottom half.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I’m in good health I took a break because my creative muse stopped. My muse was letting me know I was not fine. I removed Facebook and Twitter from my phone and pulled my work from from Las Vegas Artist Guild and City of World gallery’s. I covered the a large painting in my studio. Stopping “social media” I was no longer being pushed to be mad at something out of my control. Pulling my paintings let the pressure off my muse. It took months of to get back to where I was able to uncover my painting from March and put it away for later and put a new paper on a board.
So here is things moving forward. I will be feeding my muse with trips to beautiful places every month. I no longer look at social media. I will be posting my paintings on Facebook, Tumbler, and Instagram because it’s where people are.

Here how to get a hold of me
The last trip to Moab UT took 7 days with four camp sites in southern UT. Escalante, to Capital Reef, to Dead Horse, to Arches. Next trip is back to southern UT base camp near Natural Bridge nation park it will be at the first of 6/22 for several days.
The last place to show my work. It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Its been about two months of not painting. So I’ve pulled all my work from everywhere. Last year was a rough year. I’m going to see what comes next.
The watercolor paintings are at City of the World Gallery in the Meadow mall right next to the downstairs entrance to Macys.
I finished up four 5 x 7 watercolor paintings. These are part of my “Grass is always greener” series
I’m at City of the World Gallery today and next Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. City of the World Gallery is located right next to the Macy’s down stairs entrance at the Meadows mall.

It looks like I am going to finish up this bell today at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery I’m here from 2:00 to 9:00 today. The bell is getting better. The tree is in. The painting is based off my photos of Dead Horse state park UT.
I’m back at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery. This bell is in the ugly stage. The back ground is in but need to be tweaked. Tomorrow I’m back from 3:00 to 9:00. There’s a tree going in.
I put “Oil can on truck rim” back up on the easel for shadows and highlights. It made it have more depth. It’s a 8″ x 10″ oil painting done here at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery at the Galleria Mall.
There is some beautiful art at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery. A all volunteer crew hung a gallery full of local artists. The tables and the glass cases are full of more paintings, ceramics and prints.
