The Painting:  The first painting was called White Knight.  I wanted to paint the subject again and sought the deep contrast of cooler colors and white. You only find slight soft accents of reds and yellows.  The paint is thick and is Holbein Duo Oils

The Thought: The gathering of so much talent took place yesterday at the Dutch Art Gallery. The Artists of Texas had their first gallery showing.  Kay Wyne was the liaison for the AOT group and the gallery and did a fabulous job. 

When you walked in  you were blown away by the intensity of the work as well as the diversity.  None of this everyone painting the same thing.  None of this "your work reminds me of someone else's work".  All original and all unique.  I will put up a slide show in a day or two of the show.

The Artists of Texas is a group that welcomes application for membership for any artist that resides full time or part time in the state of Texas. We jury in the artist at this level and invite them to be on the website and on the blog, .  Our website is  From this group is a very select juried group that blog on
The origination of this group was from email visits with  Jamie Williams Grossman, an NY Artist and fellow member of Micah Condon's international group of Daily Painters,

Jamie gathers artist in NY state for paint outs and shows.  Both the friendships and the art have blossomed into a positive thing.  From emails back and forth with Jamie, I decided to begin the Daily Painters of Texas and with the help and blessing of Micah we began.  Vernita Bridges-Hoyt and Debbie Grayson Lincoln, both fellow members of Micah's group, helped as we started up. Kay Wyne of Dallas and Debbie Cannatella of Tyler are also an important part of our jury group for new members.

God has blessed us richly as artists to come together to celebrate our gifts.


The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. My eyes are ever on the LORD, for only he will release my feet from the snare.” Psalm 25:14-15
