Plein Air Painting in Gale Winds, April 6, 2010

Waxahachie courthouse

My friend Chris Toplyn recently moved to Texas from Boston, Massachusetts.  We had the opportunity this afternoon to go out and do some plein air painting.  The high winds made the effort exceedingly difficult, but we did manage to get some things down on paper (his MUCH better than mine!).  The school schedule once again is brutal at this time of year.  This is the first time I’ve picked up the brush since my last post (eons ago).  If all goes according to plan, I’ll get out again to paint for a short span on Thursday.  Tomorrow’s out of the question–school, plus my opportunity to attend an Andy Warhol museum lecture, and finally an appointment with H & R Block (glad that is nearly over for another year).

I hope I’ll have something better to show after Thursday evening.  Thanks for reading.

    A very nice start. Enjoy the Warhol lecture. The IMA has 4 of his Electric Chair silkscreens on exhibit right now. They are beautiful and brilliant.

    It looks very good, David! Roofs always seem to have a tough of nostalgic romanticism. These definitely do, with their peaks and architectural additions. Love your colors as well.

    I kind of like this just as it is, David. You have captured a moment in time, beautifully and allow my mind’s eye to fill in the rest.
