"The Mule Skinner"

16"x 22"   Graphite   $1500   USD

​This piece originated from an 1890's photograph.  While the origin of the man is not known, he is wearing an anglo haircut with a buffalo robe.  The focus is on the face while intentionally leaving the robe and shirt vague and unfocused for effect.

​"Handsome Dan"

14"x 20"   Graphite   $1200   USD

​This piece was titled "Golden Boy" originally.  The title "Handsome Dan" popped into my mind for an entry to an art show and it stuck...  

​"River Hunter"

16"x 22"   Graphite   $1400   USD

​This piece was taken from a photograph I took on the Brazos River at Kimball's Bend of the old Chisolm Trail.  The morning was cool and foggy with only myself and this fellow to share it.  He stood motionless for what seemed an eternity before moving to a new vantage point...

"Leather and Denim"

15"x 21"   Graphite   $1500   USD

​This is a piece dear to my heart.  It is taken from a photograph by noted Photographer Marian Kalka.  It was taken at a rodeo when a young barrel racer mosied up beside her, kicked back and put her boots up on the fence.

​"Little Boy Blue"

​16"x 22"   Graphite    $1500    USD

​This piece was inspired by a series of photographs from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, New Mexico, and Colorado taken during the height of the Dust Bowl era. By the time I finished, I wondered if it was being shy or a type of resignation coming through....

"Tucked Away"​

12"x 16"   Graphite   $900   USD

​Working from a photograph I took, this piece was a strange juxtaposition of the spiky leaves of a Sotol plant and the delicate flower growing up through them.

"Morning Prayer"


15"x 22"   Graphite   $1500  USD   

​Many a cowboy has stepped out of the bunkhouse at the beginning of the day and uttered a small prayer for the day to be a safe one.  This is what I envisioned for this 1930's West Texas cowboy.
