Artist's House 11-2004 18x24 acrylic
The Professor relates, "I bought this house in 1977. I transformed it into living and studio space. I loved it and never thought to leave. We moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2007 and rented the house and put it up for sale. I stayed on teaching in Tomball TX and rented a room. Commuting. After 4 years and a divorce, the house has been sold or it is going through the selling process...all the papers have been signed and I will hopefully close on March 15th. This marks an ending...and a new beginning. Here are paintings of the house over the years.

That's Princess my favorite...now dead. I built the 2 story deck and opened the back with sliding doors. The studio was upstairs. Deck is still there. The people buying intend to fix it up and live there. That's great. I always thought it would be torn down by developers. I am sad to see the house go. All life is about saying good by and hello to something new. I am now looking for a new studio near Mary Margaret."
