Something new and fun. Gouache paintings torn up and then glued back together.
Also want to share something I found on Brain Pickings which was just what every artist needs to read. Check the link below and enjoy.

This photo was taken through instagram with an earlybird filter. I have just always love that filter, to me it looks like an old 70’s polaroid photo. The story behind the land grabber’s house, the man who owned this house fenced in an additional 4 acres which belonged to the state of New Mexico and put a new mobile home on it. He was found out and lost everything. Nice try. When working on the panel below the photo it was to be an abstract. From my poor dwindling memory came land grabber’s house. Some thing just want to be. When do you know that a painting is finished? Best stop before.

Farming isn’t easy, weather, pest,cost of equipment, and time.
Below is Randy Lesly, he is the manager at Melrose Grain & Elevator (Hardware & Farm Store). This is in Melrose, New Mexico. He is a very nice man who knows the history of the area. His first day at the elevator was 9/11. Thank You to Randy for the time you spent with me in April.
