1st Plein Air in 6 months

Thursday I went to Lady Bird Johnsons Wildflower Center in South Austin. What an exciting place to paint. Deborah and Kitty were great to paint with. I painted the tower on such a wonderful warm day. It was cloudy so there were no strong shadows till after I put my palette up.

Come visit

Fredericksburg Farmhouse
Fredericksburg River I
It's been about a week and I have good news. Attending one of my workshops Jill talked with her building manager(s) and they have agreed to showcase some of our painting. Our workshop was with Ian Roberts from Canada, he is a great instructor, anyway some of us will be showing our paintings at 300 West 6th St., on each floor from March 9th thru mid May. So if you are in the Austin area come take a look and view not only my paintings but a small part of the Wildcat painting group. I know you will enjoy them. I have posted 2 painting that will be there, but there will be more. Now this is the first time in being the photographer and painter, so the quality of the photos will improve as I learn my way around.

In the beginning...Sort of

After taking a workshop at Andreeva Portrait Academy in Salado, Tx. I was inspired by the visiting professional artist/instructor and daily blogger Carol Marine. Carol was amazing, articulate and all around fun to learn from. I highly recommend taking her workshop. I though if she can paint and post so can I, its been two weeks now - guess what, I am too. So lets go.
