One of the big day's Galveston has had this year, a long boarder heading out to get wet but hopefully stay warm while doing it. A bonus in this painting is snoop the little dog.

Pretty big weekend at Galveston. The surf was breaking pretty far out from the jetty and some long boarders got some good rides. Here's one of the waves.

We do have cactus down here in Texas and you probably new that. How about in marshland next to the beach? Well, just in case you didn't know that you can see this fine specimen of a cactus on the shores of San Luis Pass on the Galveston Island side next to the bay. Take the off road trail and drive down till you hit the water and hang a left and somewhere close you'll find it.

What's your earliest child hood memories at the beach? The one that I recall was riding around in my dad's sand rail he built. From what I've learned it was one of two of the first one's built in Texas. That was fun riding around in it.

I was a stone throw away from Seabrook, TX so I though I'd stop by and paint. This is one of those rare occasions I use just my palette knife, since I forgot my brushes. I knew something was a miss. Super nice day, sunny, shorts weather for sure, and a cool breeze near the surf made for fishing for sure or whatever floats your boat, lol. Photo below of the setup as I painted.

This area at Texas City used to be filled with bait shops etc. until the big hurricane came and wiped it off clean. This small sand bar in my childhood days has survived. I can remember going out on it and fishing, nice to know it's still here.

Clear Lake, Texas. It used to be really clear, so I hear from a man who used to run a boat cleaning business. Sadly his shop and the marina itself has closed do to the Hurricane a while back. However this marina right next door is still around. My dad used to own a 22 footer and one day we had to haul her out and clean the bottom as barnacles were all on the bottom. Talk about messy and a hard days work.

The elusive Oreo Cow is in this field. My whole life I've only seen two of them this one and another in a field not to far from home. I think this one pictured here is not as grand as the one I saw about a year ago.

Painted on the same day as the crabber below. The clouds were mostly foggy but whizzing by heading to the right. This low lying cloud floated by which I thought was a nice touch.

Nice day today in Galveston. Warm day but windy with some cool slightly foggy air I guess you could say developing over the water as I painted. The sun poking through every now and then made for some interesting views. Lucked up on this shrimper or crabber, not sure which to call it, docked at a marina. In the distance is an island I once did a painting from a kayak trip. I've piddle paddled around in this bay plenty of times. Once did a trip from that island in pitch black and had to navigate back to shore with the gps, luckily I knew how to turn on the light on it otherwise I might have camped out the night as my destination was about 2 miles away.

If your in Galveston I'm in the Galveston Art League Juried show and won first place with the painting "Last Wave". Also in the show is a painting called Passing Wave. Both will be in the show until end of February.

This guy new his stuff. Looks like he's been doing this for a long time. Treasure hunting on the beach is fun to do. I've done some with a metal locator and found some coins but nothing special.
