I have always loved drawing and photography for fun. At school my notebooks were covered with images and poems for every class. I have mostly worked as a certified teacher at the AISD in Austin, TX, but make poetry, comic, and photo books on the weekend as a hobby. Here are a few of my top images for viewing and for sale.
Interests

Image of the day Luck Owl Swirls 56

This week for Tuesday I have posted a painting of a luck owl.  This is a re-sketch and repaint of a Feng Shui decorative owl said to bring good luck to the home.  It is part of a large Feng Shui themed painting I started in 2011. I did this one a while back, and need to recycle some older art for a while.  This week Photoshop Elements and my scanner’s drivers crashed my computer.  I therefore need to take a drawing comics break to fix computer issues.  I had just gotten a new computer, and I thought it was all going to transfer over smoothly from the old to the new system.  It did not do this transfer.  I think I will fix up one of my old computers to use Photoshop and photo scanners, and will just transfer the photos back and forth to my Internet computer using a thumb drive.  You can have a graphics computer or a net computer, but not both without blowing major cash.  I was posting comics Tuesday and Friday, but may need to push it back to just Tuesday until the computer issues are solved.

Also, I just read a "How to Write Art Blogs" book that says review blogs are a good way to promote your Art, and the Art of others without it seeming too much like a "spam" type advertisement.  A tool, but a smart tool indeed.
