Lilies for Vern

8.5 x 11" 
acrylic on watercolor paper 

 I've always loved day lilies. They're resilient, wild, beautiful,  drought tolerant, and glorious for the short time they're with us.  This is my entry in Vern Schwarz's  journal.  pax.

Paco & The End for James

5x5 oil on canvas paper
This is for my fellow Texas friend, James. James sent me photo references of his dog, Paco and I could not help but think that this funny sideways glance was a perfect depiction of Paco responding to another one of James' tall stories.

5x9 oil on canvas paper
I'm sad to say this is my last painting for the ever talented group of Flying Moleskins. Because this journey has come to an end for me, and with James' wonderful sense of humor, I thought it fitting to end James' book with The End.

Dominique, thank you so very much for including me in this group. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know every single one of you. My moleskine is truly a special gift, and I will treasure it always!

"Beach Buddies" by Edward Burton

This is my last submission to the Flying Moleskins. This is for Sheila Tajima whose moleskin's theme was "What you love". When I'm at the beach I love watching dogs have a good ol time playing in the surf. I hope you like it, Sheila, your book is heading home.
