Lost Creek Trail

Lost Creek Trail, 6 x 8

Today was a gorgeous Monday in Austin--a day when I feel lucky to live here (most days I do, actually). I ended up in a shady spot with my friend and mentor, Laurel Daniel, whose post today you should really see--she's an amazing painter, but an even more amazing person. (You'll also see where I edited some cliffs out in the interest of time). This is a spot near a lovely creek and really stunning cliffs that is very near my girls' school. What a good day.

Okay, I am so jealous! I am posting this on Laurel's blog too but I am so glad you two got together to paint! Both paintings yall posted are wonderful.

Mary Anne Cary said...

I really like this painting Julie, and I love your colors. Your style really is evident and confident.

Laurel Daniel said...

You got such great color in this little piece - I especially love the combination of the pinks, yellows and organges on the path. We did have GREAT fun! A very good day.

Thank you Denise- it was a treat.

I still feel new to painting (2 yrs) so only recently have I felt like I'm figuring out my "style." So thank you, Mary Anne, that is very helpful!

And Laurel, you are generous as usual! Thanks again for a great morning.

Hi Julie,

I'm hoping that the style you seek stays this way, loose, abstract, lush and rich. Glorious.

Julie, I'm so jealous, it sounds like you get to paint out everyday...lovely landscape.

Not at all, but I do paint 6 out of 7 days a week right now. I go out perhaps two of those, and take my camera with me those two days I do get the chance to go out.
