Painting the Parks

...Lufkin parks, that is.  Here are my 3 latest Lufkin Parks plein air paintings.  My friend, Barb, and I plan to paint all the Lufkin parks.  We started in April, and so far, we've painted 4.  All of these are 8x10 oil on panel.

SOLD Plein air 8x10 inches, oil on panel.  I met a friend at Chambers Park and we painted this morning.  It was fun, and the weather was perfect.

SOLD  Oil on gallery wrapped canvas, 6 x 12 inches.  The 1 1/2" edges are also painted.   I painted this from a photo I took at my dad's farm in central Texas.  Can you see how peaceful it is there?

On the Bank

Oil on canvas, 30x36 .  This is a lake near Longview, Texas.  It's the same lake I painted in A Pause for Thought, just a different view.

A Pause for Thought

16x20 oil on canvas.  This is a lake in East Texas which is a really pretty, peaceful place.  I love places like this.  I used several photos which I took about a year ago.  I had fun painting this--the paint just seemed to flow from the brush.  That doesn't happen very often.

Primary Colors

SOLD  Oil on 1 1/2" deep gallery wrap canvas, 6"x12".  I often see these trains in the mornings, and I have taken pictures of them several times.  Occasionally, they were all three there at the same time.

To the House

This is an 8"x10" oil on panel plein air painting of the driveway leading up to my dad's farm house.  The huge tree is an old elm that is beautiful in all seasons.
