THE BLUE HOE 24X30 2001

This painting brought me much joy. It was executed about two blocks from my coffee shop. This provided me a place to use the restroom and was easy to take breaks from painting. An old friend liked it and asked if The Texas Society of Engineers could use it on a T-shirt. I still see the shirts being worn on occasion. I was also invited to have a one person show at The Children's Museum in Austin. I felt like I had made a full circle, from beginning classes at the MFA in Houston @1962, to exhibiting in a children's museum. It is humbling what one can do with a little paint and a tractor.
