Lake Road


Lake Road, 9 x 12
.
Another beautiful fall day here in Texas!!! Some dear friends and fabulous painters, Carole and Charles Sikes were so kind to invite Plein Air Austin to come out and paint their gorgeous view of Lake Travis with them today. This property has been in their family for four generations... it's a very special place. (Thanks guys, for sharing it with us!)

Wow, Laurel. I love all the different subtle color changes in the trees and brush in the middle ground, with the light peaking through from behind. And the red popping through in the foreground really adds to the depth. SO beautiful.

Hi Laurel,

Looking at your paintings I feel that awe I feel when visiting a national gallery and seeing one of the greats I've long admired in person. You just are so incredibly good. Everything is here, colour, composition, light, emotion.
Wow!
