Accidental Art: Taos, New Mexico

I was happy to see a hashtagged "Accidental Art" (#accidentalart) on Twitter. It has some great finds on it. I added this one today. It was a steel door on the side of a building in Taos, NM.

Summer's end

It's about over. I've always had an ambivalent relationship with summer. I generally don't like cold weather, but summer in Texas is such a beating, and it has always had other issues, like money. But better to have them than not.
This painting is a representation of local summers, with cicadas chattering away. The landscape is loosely based on part of the creek and greenbelt that are across the street from my studio and home.
I used watercolor paper as a "patch" that also functions as the surface of the tree. It's titled "Summer, Elmwood Creek", it's 8 by 8 inches and it's acrylic on paper and canvas.

Pic for tat

I did this ink and watercolor drawing a couple of years ago. I had been considering designing my own tattoo for awhile, and I decided this image would be a good one. So my friend and tattoo artist Riley Padgett inked his interpretation onto my left arm. So here it is:

Looks pretty good, I think.
