This link really is not an art related link, but I did not know where else to put it.  If you are ever planning to come to the hill country, in particular, Fredericksburg, Texas, look at this link before you come.  It is Patsy Swendson's bed and breakfast called "The Cook's Cottage and Suites".   It is a beautiful place to stay and is within walking distance of all the things you want to see in Fredericksburg.  Her bed and breakfast has been rated as "one of the top 25 most romantic places in the U.S.".  Anyway, give her page a look before you come to the hill country.  Patsy is also working on her 48th and 49th cookbooks at the present time, one of which I am sure will be a favorite of ours, all about the tortilla in Texas.

Bill Strain is a good friend of mine and a fellow watercolorist.  If you would like to look at some of his watercolors and some other interesting things he does, click below on his name.  When you look at some of his pictures, if you see a picture of a guy with a gray beard and not much hair on his head in the picture - I think that is Bill.

I recently met a fellow watercolor (that's spelled watercolour where she is from) painter via the internet, from Orkney, Scotland.  Her name is Tracy Hall and she does beautiful florals.  Tracy has now ventured into animal paintings and she does great wildlife pictures - she has a red cockerel (what I call a rooster) that I love (and now i have a print of it).  She has also begun offering prints.  And I found out from her that her husband Jim, also plays the 5-string banjo.  Any family that has a 5-string banjo in the house, is good people.  Please take time to look at her work by clicking on her name below.  Tracy and her family (Jim, Jamie, and Jennifer) are some of my most favorite people.

I met another watercolorist through the internet who spells watercolor "funny" but he does beautiful work.  A lot of his subject matter is similar to mine, but he does it from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, in Ashby-de-la-Zouch in Leicestershire.  His name is Peter Saw. Peter also does pastels and other media.  Please visit his site by clicking on his name below.

I recently met another Texas artist (although he lived, painted and wrote) in Hawaii for some time and is now back in Texas.  Don Huebner does real mixture of oil paintings and you can see them on his page - his work is so varied I will not try to describe it.  Just pay his page a visit and you will see what I am talking about - it will be worth your time and effort.

Kathy Robbins is a Texan who was transplanted to California at a tender age, but she still has ties to Texas, and a Texan never becomes an "ex Texan" - we are Texans forever.  Kathy does beautiful paintings that you have to see.  She uses acrylics, gouache, and transparent watercolors.  This one you have to see.  Click on her name below to visit her web page.
