I met today with my co-worker on the Jazz Festival scheduled for Oct 20 from 2 to 8pm in downtown Buda, Texas on the greenbelt.  We will have a head-liner band, the Jitterbug Vipers, who is very popluar in the central Texas area, several well-known singers, Kim Kafka accompanied by Morris Nelms, Dena Taylor accompanied by David Chao, and several jazz bands, including Steve Shoen.  I am sure this will be a welcome addition to the art festival, which is in its 9th year and going strong.  The Art Festival is schedule for October 20 and 21.  There will also be music on Saturday morning and all day Sunday.  The Art Festival will include 40 to 50 fine artists, a children's art tent manned by local talented artists, and a silent auction that supports scholarships for local high school seniors that will be continuing there art in college.  Local restaurants will have food booths or will be open to serve the public and there will be a quilt showat the city hall sponsored by the Buda Bees.  Our website is

Kansas Trip

Richard and I are headed to Wichita, Kansas on Friday, May 31 to spend the weekend with my father's family.  This is the annual White reunion at Willie and Carla White's house.  I will be seeing many of my relatives that I only see once a year and catch up on what is happening with them.  We will be driving and I hope to take some good photos to encourage me to paint some new paintings. 

I am scheduled for a one-person exhibit in the Buda Tourism Office/Stagecoach Park in July, 2012 and I'm looking forward to seeing many of my friends and patrons at the exhibit reception.  More information on reception later.  I am presently working on a series of cloud paintings and hope to have several ready for the July exhibit.

Art Leagues and such.

I have recently rejoined an art group, Creative Arts Society (CAS), and joined the Wimberley Valley Art League(WVAL).  They both have very fine websites that I would ask you to visit. and Take a minute and look them over.  We had a great meeting tonight at WVAL.  I go with a group of fellow artists to these meetings so we get to discuss many art related items or the way going and coming home.  So much fun.
