Goat Shed

Goat Shed, 12 x 9, L. Daniel

Last Thursday, Plein Air Austin had another drizzly paintout day; I had to set up my easel in the back of my car to keep the canvas dry. We painted at a wonderful ranch and it was well worth the trouble. Our wonderful host, Pat Haberman, drove us all around and promised to have us back when the sun is out. (I don't forget a promise like that!) Thank you Pat! :) This little shed used to be the home and shelter of a goat herd. I would have loved to see their little faces peeking out through the rain...

The following day, Plein Air Austin left for a weekend painting trip in the Hill Country. It's just that time of year. More on that tomorrow!

I'm so jealous of all those plein air outings you get to go on! And your paintings reflect the joy and fun you obviously have out there! We New Englanders are still "battling the elements" so to speak.

Nicely done despite your challenges.

This is lovely! I like the blue shed with bits of red peeking through. Your greens are nice, too. Sounds like your plein air group is having a great time! Looking forward to seeing more!!
