Looks great! The Palm Springs natives should recognize that flower but they'll be so awestruck they'll probably just stand and drool !!!

PS - I like the new sig line

WOW! Thank you all VERY MUCH.



Here is an 8x10 canvas sketch I started a while back:





I only had a vague idea in my mind and tried to play and go with instinct, something velvet doesn't let me do.







This is a terrible pic I took at the 2/3s stage.






The pic doesn't do the sketch justice, but is fine.

zerostreet - it is 8x10", thanks for liking it.

hewey - thanks, the vibe is the focus!

LLT - It's pretty simple, but it better in person.

Hey Robb,

I just saw that you have a few painting in town over at Hank's...I can't wait to see these babies up close.

Just plain fantastic work as always Robb...

That's funny Rick, that was my first thought when I saw that Hank had 2 of Robbs paintings - this is my best chance to see a real life Hamel up close and in person!
