A Day at the Farm

A Day at the Farm

11x 14 oil on wood panel

I painted in Fredericksburg recently and had to stop at the Wild Seed Farm. We bought seeds and wondered around the gardens. We were delighted when we found fields of zinna's, cosmos and sunflowers. The butterflies and humming birds were fluttering everywhere.

Warm Autumn Light

Warm Autumn Light 11x14 oil on canvas

I created this in the studio yesterday after a painting trip to Fredericksburg. I painted a sunrise during the plein air event with The Good Art Company. The  glow of the morning light on the dried grasses and wild sunflowers was striking on the cool dirt road. I was inspired at every turn.

Barons Creekside

Barons Creekside 11x14 oil on canvas

I created this during the Good Art Company Plein Air event in Fredericksburg this week. We stayed at Barons Creekside. The cabins are each very unique and developed with recycled windows, doors and furnishings.  The creek runs through the middle of the cabins and provided great views. . It was a joy to paint along the sounds of the flowing water and gentle breeze.

Cool morning light is what inspired this painting. Just as the sun peeks over the tree tops the colors and shapes come to life.

Heron Blues

Heron Blues 14x11 oil on canvas

 I can't help but be inspired from living on the lake. The colors and wild life grace the landscape. This great heron often greets us as we cruise out in the morning. This must be a good fishing spot.

The Play of Light

The Play of Light 9x12 oil on canvas

The play of light on the lake is a never ending display of color.  During the summer we take the boat out in the early hours or as the sun goes down. It is always a beautiful display.

We experience a feeling of peace and a connection to nature. I hope this painting provides you a moment of peace.

Dreamy Sunrise

Dreamy Sunrise 14x11 oil on canvas

This painting evolved from a couple of field studies from the master garden in Granbury. I stirred in a few twist and turns in the small creek leading the eye thru the scene. It was a fun exercise in letting go of the reality and going with a dreamy sunrise.

Summer Garden

Summer Garden 9x12 oil on wood panel

This is my second painting I did at the master's garden in Granbury.  The mornings are starting off cooler these days. So hopefully I will be able to get out more often. There is just nothing like painting on location. It was surprising to find so much in bloom.

After witnessing this gorgeous sunrise, I couldn't wait to paint it.

Creek Bound 13

Creek Bound 13 8x10 oil on canvas panel

Working in a series of the same landscape has been a great way to explore new color combinations.

I wanted to suggest first morning's light with this painting. 

Capturing the golden light and adding texture makes this one of my favorites.

Do you have a favorite in this series?
