Lake Somerville Trees

Lake Somerville Trees, 10 x 8

I had the good fortune this weekend this weekend to go to Bryan, Texas to the Forsyth Gallery, where some Plein Air Austin members currently have paintings on display (me included). The gallery was hosting a paint-out, and some of us in PAA went down to join in. On the way there Friday evening, our caravan stopped at Lake Somerville and painted. These trees were on a hilly peninsula that caught our eyes. It was a beautiful evening and a wonderful way to spend it--painting at the lake with friends.
