Oil on canvas, 32"x40".  The rising sun spread a warm glow over the whole landscape.  I painted this from a photo I took this past spring.

Clear Water

Oil on canas, 36"x48".  This is not a new painting, but one I haven't posted.  I painted this from a photo my son took near Austin.  What caught my eye in this scene is the clear swirling water coming around the big rocks and over the small rocks on the bottom of the stream.

Veila's Back Yard

6"x8" oil on canvas on panel, plein air painting. About a week ago I visited my friend, Veila, at her home in north Texas.  It's about a 7 hour drive from my home in east Texas.  We had a great time painting and visiting.

9"x12" oil on canvas on panel plein air painting: I also did this one at my dad's farm last week. It's such a peaceful, beautiful place. This view is from the back of the house down the hill toward the pond, the opposite direction from the road.

Afternoon View

9"x12" oil on canvas on panel plein air painting: I went to my dad's farm in central Texas last week and painted this one afternnoon from the deck of the house. The horizontal row of trees and bushes is along a fence beside the road. From this view on the hill, you can't see the road. This huge old oak tree is beside the driveway which goes down to the road. The weather was beautiful and it was so nice to be able to paint en plain air.

I've been very busy painting for a new Natural History Museum that will open in August. It is exciting and lots of fun! I'll post some pictures later.
