I haven't been painting murals lately, but I have been busy with several art projects.

This fall sign painting of Psalm 100: 4 with pumpkin motifs and in autumn colors was painted for a display at Dallas Baptist University.

I have been working on a calligraphy job of addressing 250 wedding envelopes for a wedding in January, 2008. The invitations are being mailed before Thanksgiving. This takes a steady hand and a lot of quiet uninterrupted time.

Williams Pyro Inc. of Fort Worth, Texas established a fund for injured firemen and their families several years ago. An annual chili cook-off at the Bass Pro Shop in Grapevine brings in many contributions for this important fund. This boot was a prize for the first place, Novice division in the "Stop, Drop and Roll Chili Cook-Off" I painted the hot chili motif and the lettering on the real fireman's boot.

A 6" x 6" Baby Boy Bootee

This small acrylic painting was painted for a new baby boy. To personalize the little painting, the baby's name and birth date were added.
