Reef Rover

Sold

Scuba diving has been something I've enjoyed and runs in the family. My dad was head of the Scuba Diving club at Macdill Airforce Base while he was stationed in Florida in the 60's and did a great deal of diving and two brothers who are certified divers and mom was a snorkler but did go on some dives. Lot's of stories my dad has about diving around Florida including cave diving, night diving, and spearfishing. Looking forward to doing a lot more of these paintings.

The common Cat Tail seen here, which I've always called it that, is also called Bulrush, Catninetail, and probably the more funnier descriptive name, corn dog grass.

Sold

Familiar Ground is referring to a tree which this cow visits everyday to my knowledge. There's other trees around but this one is the biggest in the area. Will have more of these coming soon since I really like cows there everywhere down here. 


Sample of the above painting.

It's interesting to see these tankers going out to sea. I have no clue where there headed maybe South America, Africa, or the Middle East through the Mediterranean Sea. Must be one heck of a voyage. This view is to the left of the 27th jetty. The waves were breaking pretty good outside.

Longboarder

Sold

The small days are great for longboarding for two reasons, with a short board it's harder to catch waves, and tow longboards are fun. This guy having a fun day just outside 27th.

Low Tide at 8 Mile


Low Tide at 8 Mile
Galveston Island, Texas

Oil on Panel

Sold

Shrimp boats are fun to paint. Loads of interesting shapes and colors. This particular shrimp boat is at the end of the 8 mile road on the island. Do to a low tide the boat is actually leaning to it's left as the inlet there is quite shallow. The owners have been fixing it up a little every year. Looking better now.
