Gazing at a Classical Column in Waxahachie

Bed and Breakfast in Waxahachie, Texas

Bed and Breakfast in Waxahachie, Texas

I admit that exhaustion is slowly taking me down.  I chose to drive to Waxahachie late this afternoon, following a round of final exams at my high school.  By the time I arrived, I discovered that there was serious loading that had to be done for the art work to be successfully installed by Saturday’s show.  I helped carry a number of screen panels to serve as temporary walls for hanging art work.  By the time that job was done, the sun was at quiet a hot spot in the late afternoon.  Cruising northward on Business Highway 287, my eye was caught by the sun on the side of this Ionic column at a popular Bed and Breakfast.  I pulled the Jeep over and gave it a try.  Though the sun and humidity were hard to bear, the shade made it possible for me to stand at my easel awhile and attempt to capture this pretty environment.

Thanks for reading.  Tomorrow is the last day to paint before judging.  I’ll try to get in time for one more painting between school and the late afternoon deadline.

I paint in order to remember.

I journal when I feel alone.

I blog to remind myself that I am not alone.

    What a luscious scene! It may have been hot out, but looking at this made me feel I had found shady solace. And so Classical, all it needs is a gauzy nymph sparkling her way along the trees. : )
    Nothing stale here.

      Thank you! It’s the only piece that sold in this recent collection of work. And the buyer did mention that she liked the “cool” feeling of the composition.
