Cactus at Mission San Jose

There are so many beautiful things to paint at our area missions. The photo for this painting was taken early one morning. Hardly a soul had arrived so it was very peaceful. The sunlight was perfect.

Texas Farm #1

This is an old farm located in our area. Wish I had been able to catch it on a sunny day. It is in line with one of the proposed Trans-Texas Corridor routes. When I saw what routes were proposed, I went out an photographed as many farms as I could in hopes of preserving them, if only in a painting. I have no idea who owns this particular farm.
The colors are not quite true. The barn is not that red and the foreground not that yellow but this is the best I was able to get. Where is my owner's manual!?
