This is Jared, my second cousin. He is now turning a bit gray but still looks like a leading man. Oh, to be young and good looking!

I don't do many landscapes. Just don't feel like I know how to do them yet. This used to hang on my office wall. Now it is on the wall of one of my former students.
My oldest granddaughter, Zoe. She is now finishing her first year at Auburn. This is from one or her more funky days - hairdo from some foreign zip code. She was still beautiful though! She wants to go to med school after AU. And I pray that her dreams come true.
My wife Nan, feeding pigeons on our trip to Germany in 2014. She rested on this bench while my grandson and I wandered the grounds of a beautiful old building (can't recall its name) taking photos.

This is Audrey, my youngest grandaughter. I painted it from the photo she selected as her "favorite"among all the ones I took of her last summer while she was visiting. It was really an accident - she was running at me and I meant to get her entire face. Kind of different, but I like it too.

I call this "The Bun". My eye caught this woman's hair as I sat behind her in church one Sunday. The smallest things can catch an artist's eye. I enjoy making nice paintings of simple things.

Another painting of Nicole, Matt's wife. I've painted her several times. I'm still working on painting people, not as portraits, but as just a painting subject. People are truly God's greatest creation. He said He made us in His own image! How's that for a compliment?

An older painting of my mom in my dad's yard, admiring his handiwork. She was a beautiful woman and I miss her. She is gone now, a victim of the most hellish disease on earth - dementia. I choose to remember her this way, lovely gray hair, at peace in her simple life. Beautiful.

The lovely wife of one of my best friends and colleagues. She is dressed in her traditional Indian wedding garments. 

My granddaughter chalking up her daddy's drive way, still dressed in her Sunday dress. She is now a teenager with green, purple or blue hair, depending on her mood that week I suppose. She is now living in Virginia. Sure wish she lived closer to us in Birmingham.
