Barton Springs Shadows, 9 x 12
Barton Springs Pool is fed by an under ground spring and the water stays around 68 degrees all year round. It's a delicious way to cool down, especially in this incredible heat wave we are having. Last week, our plein air group met there to paint - and to swim when it got too hot. We are doing that sort of thing a lot these days - it's the only way to be outside and survive the heat!
A side note: this tree almost got cut down this spring for safety reasons. Thank goodness for the friends of the pool who rallied together and saved it! Can you imagine how many picnics have taken place under that tree?
