Mrs. Donna Johnson (oil 9/12)

This is a portrait I did for Pastor Wellington Johnson and his wife Donna. They just got a new house and this is a housewarming gift. I played keyboards at their church with my pal Lonzo Coulter. I don't do many portraits but I had a lot of fun with this subject. I tell you one thing Pastor Wellington sure can preach!

St Augustine FL House. (watercolor 8/9.5 $100

St Augustine FL is chock full of interesting buildings and homes. A lot of artists there agree. Check out the galleries down there that feature local artists. They get the spirit of the place. More interesting than the fancy expensive galleries that feature trendy foreign stuff. Some of that stuff looks like factory art. Assembly line art or whatever you want to call it.
If interesed in buying email me the title.

Federal Point FL House. (watercolor 11/8)

I liked this house in Federal Point FL. There is a neat white church down from it that I need to paint. My folks say they have a fish fry there every April. Alaskan pollack, yum. If interested in buying email me the title.
