As part of Senator José Rodríguez’ ongoing efforts showcasing District 29, the Senator’s office held a call for artists to display artwork at his District 29 Office. Three of my pieces were selected and will be on display from December 7 through May 1 of next year.
The Senator will be hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Holiday Open House at the El Paso office on Friday December 7th. from 4-6:00 p.m. at 100 N. Ochoa, Suite A. If you missed my works on display at the Crossland Gallery you can check them out there. The pieces selected are:
- Stop at 700 Mundy, 48″ X 24″, oil on canvas, 2012
- The Great Fabens Getaway, oil on canvas, 36″ X 36″, 2012
- All Tapped Out in El Paso, oil on canvas, 48″ X 48″, 2011
All of the basic color blocking is done and now its on to the details. The plan is to have the next update be the completed painting…
I started a new painting a week or so ago and I finally got to getting some details into it. It’s based off a series photos I shot at the Whoopee Bowl Antiques:
Interestingly, the white chicken is the exact same aluminum sculpture like the green one I found in Fabens. I used the Fabens chicken in my “The Great Fabens Getaway” painting. These chickens apparently get around:

Starting something new. I’m moving back into a comfortable size after the series of small paintings I did.
