Alonso Davis

In a summer session at the San Antonio Art Institute(now gone)  Alonso Davis challenged me.  Do you want to think of yourself as an artist, or a housewife?  Made me mad, so I painted Dogs of Hell.  After he set us up to paint a mural (on a barber shop wall)  I designed, helped paint, and finished the 10’x20′ mural, that stayed there for ten years.    I chose artist.  Thanks, Alonso Davis, west coast muralist.

Tobacco Barn painting

Few NC farmers grow tobacco anymore. The legislature may lift the ban on growing hemp. Don’t know if that is good or not. We need farmers, for oh so many reasons. This painting is on display at 86 N. Main, Waynesville, NC.RAP---Tobacco-barn-1-2008
