Ledges at Bull Creek


Ledges at Bull Creek, 9 x 12

Today was my first chance since the new year to paint en plein air. After several paintout cancellations due to cold and rain in the last six weeks, it was a joy to be out in the sunshine. Not only that, but this creek was full and flowing - something we haven't seen since before the draught. A glorious sight!

Oh, we in colder climes are so jealous! It is a lovely painting.

Love the way you handle foliage. And water... beautiful!

Laurel, it was great seeing you again yesterday and I had a great time. Your painting is fabulous and I'm hoping to finish mine this weekend. I plan to show up on the 30th and to keep showing up as often as I can. Thanks for being so kind and supportive - it really means a lot to a newbie like me!

We've been socked in my the rain... I expect it's heading your way, so glad you were able to get out and paint!

I can feel the bright sunny winter day (Texas Winter Day) in your painting.
