Colors in the digital image may vary slightly from monitor to monitor. What I am seeing on my iMac closely matches what is on the original canvas. 

I paint from personal experience and prefer painting from my own photo references. Memories of that trip to Galveston come back in waves, and Glen Campbell's song Galveston runs through my mind.

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin' I still see her dark eyes glowing' She was 21 when I left Galveston
Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing While I watch the cannons flashing I clean my gun and dream of Galveston
I still see her standing by the water Standing there lookin' out to sea And is she waiting there for me? On the beach where we used to run
Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying Before I dry the tears she's crying Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun At Galveston, at Galveston

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.
