Western Ridge

Western Ridge, 6 x 8, SOLD

I spent this morning painting at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower which today was full of people. It's bluebonnet time and lots of kids were out of school. In addition to formal garden spaces, many trails lead out into the surrounding acres. I found this quiet spot at the beginning of one of those trails.

I really like the simplicity of these plein air paintings. The simple brushwork conveys everything.

Really nice painting! I especially love those ribbons of pastel colors leading the eye into the background.

You paint the most exquisite fields. How beautifully you stated the flowers and the distance!
