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!
