6 x 8 in., oil on panel

My apologies for the inconsistent posts lately! I've been hard at work all spring behind the scenes. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I've taken two workshops, one with Randall Sexton and Plein Air Austin here in the city, and one in Kerrville with Matt Smith through Kerrville Arts and Cultural Center. Both workshops have kept me trying new techniques reinventing some old, and renewing some of my equipment and supplies. Spring is a time of renewal, and I'm on board. :)

This little guy is a tree out on a golf course in Bastrop, Texas. I spent a couple of days out there following my youngest at her tournament, and sketched and photographed more than a few trees in the process. Despite the overcast skies, I got some fun study material.  This painting sold to a dear friend of one of my daughters. She's just finishing college, but is already an art lover and a collector!

Had I come across this scene, I may have continued walking but I'm grateful that you realized its potential. One can see your love of trees and the outdoors with each painting. pure joy.
