Gallery on the Square in Wimberley

I am again displaying my wildflowers in Gallery on the Square, a wonderful contemporary fine art gallery located in the heart of Wimberley, which is located in the Texas Hill Country west of San Marcos and Austin (click here to learn more about this little getaway or here for a map).

Currently on display are:
and, just in time for Valentine's,

All are on gallery-wrap canvas. If you are ever in Wimberley, please stop by this gallery and be sure to ask about my work. Of course, you can view a large selection of my wildflowers posted at my online gallery. As always, my Casa de Linda Gallery and Studio in historic downtown New Braunfels is open by appointment. Just e-mail at if you are interested in seeing a larger selection of my work in person.

Texas Hill Country Weather

We had a rare appearance of snow mixed with lots of ice this past week. Kept me out of the studio for a week and had to cancel art classes. Looks like we are back on track now. I keep telling folks, "That's why I don't live up north!" Seriously, it was pretty to look at.

I have continued to do some freelance writing for the San Antonio Express-News. My latest article, about a home in New Braunfels, was published today in the SA Life section. You can read it online at The owners, Paul and Nancy Bower, happen to be fellow artists and fellow members of the New Braunfels Art League. The story should be up for about a week.

My writing is something I do "on the side," but my art is my true love. If this is your first time here, please be sure to visit my website, where you can read all about my work as an artist.

San Antonio Express-News...
I'll have two articles in Saturday's San Antonio Express-News. One is on overwintering plants and the other is a story on a lovely home in San Antonio for the Spaces feature. They are posted online in case you want to read them. When you get there, click on the "Give them shelter" headline for the article on overwintering. Click on "Spaces: Bungalow setting..." headline for a link to that article.

NBAL Artist of the Year...
Panoramic photographer Bill Brockmeier was named New Braunfels Art League 2006 Artist of the Year at a reception Thursday night. If you can't make it to the gallery this month, you can see Bill's work on his website. Bill is a friend of mine and I've proud of him!

New Wildflowers...
I got to spend some time in the studio this week and have completed two new wildflower paintings. They are each 18 X 24. As soon as they are dry enough, I'll take photos to post on my gallery blog.

Exhibit-Highlights of 2006

This is a photo of the four paintings I have in the New Braunfels Art League "Highlights of 2006" show. The exhibit showcases the league's artists of the month from last year. A reception for the artists will be held from 5-8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11 at the gallery, located at 239 W. San Antonio St. in downtown New Braunfels. The show runs through Jan. 30. I'll also have my studio, which is located upstairs, open to the public that evening. The works on exhibit can be seen at my Wildflower Gallery Blog. If you are in the area, please join us!
