In which I revive my old Pinterest account in order to start promoting my upcoming novel, but really I just want to pin pictures of English Pointers.
It was cold and wet in Galveston today, definitely not the perfect day to be there with a dog. But I got to see the sandhill cranes. They were by the airport, close to Holly’s vet’s practice. Their feathers somewhat ruffled from the wind, they appeared like magical creatures.
Galveston, Texas, September 2008 – Waiting for Ike Galveston always has a way of making you feel unwelcome. But as the Island breeze caressed her face, Katie scolded herself for the uncharitable thought. Pelicans glided in a V above her head. And though the church door was locked – something she’d dreaded since she’d seenContinue reading “Galveston, September 2008”
It’s definitely been a busy weekend and I was mighty tired today. I treated myself to a delivery breakfast from Pondicherry – a dosa with veggies and ginger inside, coconut almond pancakes with fruit and yogurt, and an avocado quinoa bowl, all of which was delicious. I ate it at various points during the day.Continue reading “Highlights of the Day”

I had a bit of an adventure, though, so painting live tonight required being resourceful. I basically had too much fun last night, then today after I workedContinue reading “Art for Hope”
Tonight I hosted a party in honor of the wonderful collectors who purchased art this year. In preparation I decided to make a video highlighting some of this year’s favorite paintings, trips, and parties.

You probably remember the original art, which is available at the gallery, but the cover itself is really something! Take a look! Also today I painted liveContinue reading “Keep Spinning Around”
Are you ready? The moment has finally arrived! Tomorrow I will reveal the cover of Storms of Malhado, my upcoming novel! As usual, I made the art myself, but for the first time ever I had professional help designing the actual cover! Can’t wait to show it to y’all tomorrow!
One of my most inspiring collectors is on a trip to Colorado and posted some amazing videos of sleigh dogs. I definitely had to draw these! Meanwhile here in Houston I managed to read too late into the night and not get enough sleep, which impacted the photo shoot I had this morning. I’m tryingContinue reading “Sleigh Dogs”
This is a sandhill crane. It’s the season for sandhill cranes in Galveston, and although winter doesn’t excite me, and I don’t care for the Holidays – to put it mildly – I do enjoy the occasional glimpse I get of these beautiful birds. I see them sometimes when I drive out to Campeche CoveContinue reading “Do You Read Seasonally?”
