Billowy Reflections and The Weekender

Captured here are two Texas icons: the Guadalupe River which runs through the Hill Country and the Driskill Hotel in downtown Austin. Something about the color palette and the low focal point in each connects these two paintings. Sure, one is a nature scene and one is an interior, but both send the viewer's gaze (and the painter's gaze) into a thoughtful distance of repose.

So lovely, Laurel. And the preview for your show is the perfect appetizer. Love the images but can't wait to see them in person. Congratulations!
