I’ll hopefully be starting a commentary enhanced version of my just finished excerpt series from my 2004 novella, The Old American Artist, next week!
It’ll be fun rummaging through my feelings and thoughts and what the excerpt meant to me then, and what it means to me now, with further hindsight.
I’ve posted some info about the painting on my book’s cover page below. I think I’ve located it, tucked away for over a decade now, lol! Once I can get a got image of it, I’ll upload it to Fine Art America and probably make the painting available for purchase 😊
Immediately below the Image section below, is my Index of sorts from my starting page for the excerpt series itself. Lots of good info with the links tagged to specifics of anything you might like to know more about.
That’s about it for now, hope everyone has a great Friday. We’re gonna try to enjoy the relatively mild weather the next few days ’cause next week we’re looking at possibly dipping into the teens for a few days. Round here, that’s like being 100 far north, lol! We got a lot of good teas for making hot tea, maybe pick up a couple of squashes to make in the oven 😊
The Image – San Antonio Riverwalk
Large, 30×40 I think, painted with water soluble oils in the early 2000s, San Antonio Riverwalk
San Antonio Riverwalk, my cover image for The Old American Artist, is one of two San Antonio painting I’ve done, the other titled the same, 24×36, sold a long time ago in New York.
My cover image for The Old American Artist (top of post), was in climate control storage for a long time after a dear friend, a curator and promoter who’d championed this piece, passed away. I’ve had it in my closet for many years now, took it out last summer, gave it a good look, and put it back away. Robert, a dear supportive friend who’s unfortunately no longer with us, said he could never figure out how I made my work look as European as I did. I didn’t either, much less knew or felt or realized, as I do now, how true that was. Probably the Impressionism of it. I still don’t really know. Part of the mystery of art and me and whatever it is that really happens deep down in the creative chambers of my soul ❤️
Ironically, I’ve some recent watercolors I can think of that are also impressionistic and one, in particular, A Walk in Paris With a View of the Eiffel Tower, nearly as European. But that’s cheating, since Paris is in Europe, lol!

Of the other two works, one is of wildflowers here in Austin, and the other is an imaginative figure work!

- July 31, 2021 – Prepping a New 16×20 Acrylic, Working Title : Testing the WaterThe initial goal was to simply select and mark the area for my figure. Then I freely applied Golden’s light molding paste, leaving the selected area for my figure much more level, and forming the paste into potentially vegetative designs as inspiration and malleable ground meshed —
- July 30, 2021 – What a Difference a New Keyboard Makes : LENRICH iPad pro 12.9 case with keyboardThis is an older now discontinued keyboard, but one of the few still available for my IPad Pro 2nd generation model (current model is 5th generation I believe), but I’m impressed with it enough to post about it and (if all continues well) my renewed ease of use not having to use the onscreen keyboard for blog posts, emails etc – that’s a big deal for me, lol! 😊
- July 29, 2021 – Whew! Yesterday Was a Day of Plowing Through, lol!Above is a picture of me November 2019 (notice the weather is warm but hot, finally 😊) and I look just a bit worn out? I’d just climbed the 218 steps to top of Old Baldy near Wimberley Texas! That’s kinda how I felt yesterday, only without as nice a view, lol! I’ll just say that….
- July 28, 2021 – New 25×40 #Acrylic on Canvas In-Progress : Barton Springs Greenbelt Indian SummerA chore heat filled day where my keyboard evidently is deciding it’s had it, lol! Hopefully I finish this post 😊 Basically I started the groundwork for my newest painting, acrylic, wanting to settle on my composition before hand, unlike how I handled my just finished watercolor, same size, where I inserted my figure at the end.
- July 27, 2021 – 4 Weeks Running! My Most Viewed Image For the Week @FineArtAmerica, Summer is a Lady : #Watercolor on Paper #ContemporaryImpressionismI’m sure I’ve had images repeat as most viewed 4 times in a row, but I wasn’t paying as much attention to that as I try to nowadays 😊 Summer is a Lady continues to simmer atop my selection of photos and artwork and illustrated poetry ♥️
- July 26, 2021 – Where I Left Off Before Our Trip, New #Watercolor on Canvas Completed : Barton Springs Greenbelt Indian SummerI just took another look at my newly completed painting (above) to try for some settled sentiment I can include for my post, and I do have that – some settled sentiment. I’m still digesting and assimilating what this new work means to me. Though I know it’s incomplete, because I also know this work is more a conscious marker of where I want to head, and feel compelled to head toward, I do have a grasp enough to point out some things that are making themselves more known to me.
- July 25, 2021 – Where I Left Off Before Our Trip, New Watercolor on Canvas in-progress, Developing the Right Figure to AddAs you can tell from my top pic, my efforts to progress from my value study and digital studies below are not going great, lol! I take solace from several things —
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
