Since the 1980's, I have been putting portraits in the homes of people in Texas. I am expanding my art through sales without commission (although commissioned art is still available) through Internet sales of travel and culture.

A link will be opened in July for art.

Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel-at the Women's Museum Dallas

I loved photographing the wedding professionals luncheon in Garland featuring wedding and event planner Donnie Brown.Donnie Brown:He is knowledgable, gracious, and funny.

The day began at the Premier Best Western in Denton where Jules got ready. Cynthia and Chrystal covered the photography there while I went to Valley View a half hour north to get details at Jakes ranch.Jake has a lot of acres in Valley View. Down the hill from the house, he built a pergola for his bride to marry in. He also created a "church entrance," a set of french doors for her father to use to come through bringing Julie down the aisle. Very romantic!

In the next few weeks I will be retouching all the images so that ...
