I worked larger for this one. The plan is a 16 by 20 piece. This is an 8 by 10 exploration painting.

On the way back from Sulphur Springs, Texas I took a ton of photos. I love scenes with freshly baled hay. I hadn't been on that road since I was a teenager. I plan on a large pastel and watercolor of this scene.

This is my first study for a larger set of paintings in watercolor and pastel. The subject matter is the flower garden on town lake along Cesar Chavez.

On Friday night I had a little time to paint in my hotel room. I decided to give this one a little more sauce to give it a little punch. I think this version is very close to what I was able to do in pastel.

This is one of my favorite buildings in Commerce, Texas. Its sits on a corner of Park street. I was on my way back to Austin one morning and caught this light on the house.

In the evening I like to sit outside and watch clouds if we have them. I like how they dominate the tree tops with color and what appears to be volume.

This little man did not want to be photographed but I caught him briefly unaware. He is one of Justin's sons. When the family gets together, this part of our family socializes too. Its fun to see their relationships develop.
