Across the Harbor

Plein air, 9x12, oil on canvas on panel. This is another painting I did on the Port Aransas paint out. It is very interesting painting shrimp boats. We saw these across the harbor from where we were set up in Aransas Pass.

Cloudy Day Sunset

Plein air, 9x12, oil on canvas on panel. This is the first painting I did when I went to Port Aransas on a paint out with the Outdoor Painters Society in November. The day was cloudy and very windy. It was difficult to keep everything from blowing away. We found a windbreak and painted in Aransas Pass that afternoon.

Reflection of Tradition

Oil on canvas, 16"x20". Here is another painting that's in my show at the Museum of East Texas (936) 639-4434. I painted this from a photo I took in Illinois. Last summer, I took my dad and went to Woodstock, Illinois, for my niece's wedding. Woodstock is about an hour northwest of Chicago. On our way home, in central Illinois, it had been raining and was just beginning to clear from the left. You can still see the rain on the right side of the picture.

Palm Shadows

Oil on panel, 12"x9", Plein Air painting. We went to the Rio Grande Valley to visit my sister-in-law for New Years. This is a painting I did about a block from her house in La Feria. I liked the design of the shadows on the side of the building, so I set up my easel and painted this. It was a beautiful, sunny day about 80 degrees.
