People playing on the beach on labor day. I painted from our balcony for the last paintings of the day. I don't get out and paint enough in Texas. I don't care for the heat so I tend to work from photos for some of my Texas landscapes. I do get out a little with Plein Air Austin during the cooler months when I don't have gallery duty. I have painted down in the Rockport/Fulton area but only for a weekend. I try and include my home state in my study of the landscape. I must admit the landscape in California inspires me to paint in just about any conditions (excluding earthquakes).
