    Home, oil on birch panel, 6"x6", 2016. Old Timer, oil on panel, 6x6", 2016. This was my first little warm up painting, marking the kick of the 2016 EnPleinAir Texas Invitational. I painted it off the side of the road in the small Texas town of Ballinger. Upon seeing this painting, a woman commented that she teared up a little because it reminded her of home. The title I gave it seemed especially appropriate after that. This modest and humble painting reminded her, that is no place like home.

    I can't stop visiting this lovely painting. The brushstrokes of paint are so engaging and full of energy.


    This is a sweet, loving painting of a subject matter the painter obviously enjoys painting. For an old subject, this painting is fresh and lively. The free brush stroke is masterful.
