I just returned from a trip to northern Illinois for my niece's wedding. I took my dad with me and it was a great trip--I drove about 2000 miles round trip. I took my paints, hoping to find time to paint en plein air, but, that didn't happen. I did take pictures, though, and I hope to be able to paint tomorrow. A bad case of poison oak has taken me over and I'm waiting for medication from my doctor. Obviously, he doesn't have poison oak or I wouldn't still be waiting... I think it's leprosy...ooooh!

9x12 Plein Air oil on canvas on panel. This is another one of the paintings I did last week at the Paint Historic Waxahachie paint out. It was so HOT (close to 100) and the light was so bright!!! I was standing partially in the shade, but it was a challenge getting this finished.

10x8 oil on canvas on panel Plein Air painting. This is one of the paintings I did at the Paint Historic Waxahachie paint out. This antique car with a 1949 Texas license plate on it is parked downtown almost all the time. I had lots of fun and did 5 plein air paintings.

Paint Historic Waxahachie

I'll be leaving at 6:00 AM tomorrow to drive to Waxahachie, Texas , near Dallas, for the paint out there. It's about 3 hours from here. I'm really looking forward to it. I will be home late on Sunday, the 6th, with plein air paintings to post.
