East Texas Plein Air, June 18, 2010

Grand Saline, Texas

Friday morning, I headed to east Texas with Gaylord O’Con, a painting buddy I’ve recently met.  The temperatures again soared to triple digits, but we got an early start on the morning, leaving Dallas around 6:00 a.m.  We first settled beside this abandoned cotton gin.  I wanted to capture some of the dynamics of the huge tree shrouded in shadow in front of the gin, along with the railroad crossing behind it.

Last Day of the Waxahachie Paint Out, June 3, 2010

June 3, 2010

Stop, Look and Listen

The last day of painting for the Waxahachie Paint Out brought overcast skies and marvelously cool breezes.  I could have stayed all day.  Chris Toplyn joined me and we had the good fortune of meeting up with Gaylord O’Con from Dallas.  The three of us painted the entire afternoon, enjoying the cool, along with the mutual encouagement.  It’s been a great week in Waxhachie.  I’ve managed to kick out eight watercolors, and definitely feel drained from the endeavors.

Thanks for reading.
