I arrived home late last night, LATE, after driving all day, about 14 hours. Needless to say, I didn't got much done in the way of painting. Although, I did paint a little. I cleaned up all my things, washing, putting things back in the studio and pulling out paintings. I've got a few paintings that I felt need some more work. This was one of them. I actually painted this in Texas when I was at the OPA show. I felt the reflections were a little weak. I deepened some of the colors in them and added a couple more brushstrokes on the shoreline the it was texture against the smooth water. I have a couple more that I worked on today and photographed a few paintings also.

Tonight I will be at the Royal Palms Resort doing a demo as I have done on some previous Friday nights. It's late notice now, but if you are in the area stop by. I will be there next Friday also. I'll be back in the studio tomorrow packing some sold paintings and prints, cleaning up and getting ready for some serious studio painting. The sales on my e-book, How to Create Beautiful Paintings Using Foundational Concepts have been going very well. There have been a couple of glitches. 1. I inverted two terms, but corrected that and got the new version out the few that bought at first. 2. I set up the sale with paypal, an email with the download link was supposed to go out after your purchase. It has been inconsistent with some people getting the link and others not. I've had to keep an eye on the paypal and send out the link as quickly as I can. So, that is disappointing. I have now talked to the person that works on my website about finding a cart for me to do what I want. Hopefully, this will be resolved soon. In the meantime, if you purchase the ebook and don't get the download link, email me at

Talk to you all later.
Have a good weekend.
