Robin’s Birthday Paint Party

I had a fun time painting for Robin’s birthday at Escondido.  I like being able to travel for work sometimes to meet nice people.  When I first got there I noticed some neat horses and it was really hot so it was apt what the birthday lady chose to paint.    

Painting at the Park – Family

I have been teaching some of my students sculpture and ceramics.  These are a few that I had left over from examples and I found that these coil pots made perfect succulent/cacti homes.  The last one with the plant inside is a student’s and they look so good all together. ?

4th of July Electrical Boxes

For Fourth of July I wanted to pretty up some boxes as well as create something festive for the town.  I wanted to have the folks at the base feel like they’re part of the town.  It’s also been annoying me how ugly some of the power boxes are on this part of town when I Read more about 4th of July Electrical Boxes[…]
