I finished this 18X24 oil on canvas, “Texas Pride”, the end of January, ’09. It was a challenge and joy.  (click on pic to enlarge)

I delivered ‘Texas Pride’ this evening. They loved it. I mean really loved it. Made me proud, not only that I did it but that they loved it. I look forward to the next one…


“The painting is amazing! I saw the original photo Craig took in Iraq and love what you’ve done with the background. The Texas flag was one of the first items he requested after he’d been in Iraq a short time and you captured his pride in Texas beautifully.”
