TACO MOON

I am very fond of “Street Tacos”… so I painted a food truck I saw down on the Trinity River near downtown Dallas. I have also painted the Margret Hunt Hill Bridge which is near that spot as well. 

Taco Moon was honored with a First Place in Oils in Grand Prairie’s 2017 Annual Juried Art Show & Sale, on display at the Uptown Theater in Grand Prairie, Texas. It also won a Merchandise Award at the RCAS 51st Regional Juried Art Exhibition and Sale.
