Quiet Creek

Quiet Creek, L. Daniel, 12 x 9


Last week, the Outdoor Painters Society met up for a few days to paint in Wimberley, Texas... about an hour from my home. This was a special treat because we were invited to paint on private land along the creek. I got there early and had a quiet morning with this glowing stand of cypress tress. Delightful. (Also delightful was the gathering of friends at lunch time.) :) Thanks for having us, Bob!

Laurel, I am even more in awe of your talents after TRYING a similar painting that day. I tried to do too much with mine and created a mess. You can learn a lot seeing things through other artists eyes. Great seeing you again!

Beautiful! Very lyrical. It feels so "light" get the values are not "white." Such a very dreamy and lovely painting!

Love the high key sunshiney feel to this one. That blue of the water is gorgeous against those glowing trees...Well done and sounds like an amazing day!

Beautiful Laurel. I love those bits of purple-blue with the golds.
