Plein Air at Warbler Woods

This was painted at Warbler Woods, just outside of San Antonio. What a peaceful and beautiful wild bird sanctuary! I must confess that I have now been bitten by the bird watching bug. So many interests, so little time!!!

Plein Air at Live Oak City Park Lake

Several of the Texas Paint Slingers went to Live Oak City Park last week. There was a threat of rain but it did not keep us away. We've been needing rain so badly I think we would have happily painted while dancing in it!
It was overcast, making the light flat but, the air was cool. It was so nice getting back outside after our long, hot summer!

Oil Portrait

I painted this portrait of my husband in pastels in April. Here it is again in oils. This painting looks much more like him. He is very pleased so that makes me even happier. He was so patient when I asked him to pose for a photo shoot. This was my favorite of the day.
