Summer Series
The summer has been filled with a busy schedule and not much time for travel. So I created a journey of my own, right at the easel. Using my own symbols and colors, I painted a series of paintings that represent to me, different countries and cultures. Here are a few of them for you to see. Also in the series is Mexico, Japan, and Greece. Mary at the Winnsboro Gallery has two of them available, Japan, and China. The others can be seen here at the studio, or online at www.wilderartstudio.

23rd World Wide SketchCrawl July 11
SketchCrawl a World Wide event: having people from different corners of the world
join in a day of sketching and journaling and then, thanks to the Internet, having everyone share the results on an online forum.
I went on my first official
sketchcrawl , and I am excited to say that I scheduled to do it again in August 8. We have gone out and found people, nature, and day to day life to sketch. The official world wide is posted on the internet, usually about every three months. But a group of artist in the Tyler area has formed and plan to go each month. We will post our sketches on the internet site during the official sketchcrawl. It should be fun as well as a great way to keep the drawing habit sharpened. Please come join in the fun if you get a chance. Just let me know you are interested and will keep you updated as each event gets nearer.

I was invited to judge an art show at the Henderson County Art League, in Athens, Texas. There was a variety of artist from beginners to professional. Congratulations to all of you, it was an impressive show.
