12x12 Oil on Cradled Panel

On a beautiful autumn day a couple of weeks ago I drove to Glen Rose to paint.  In my rush to leave I forgot my mineral spirits - remembered just as I was approaching the Glen Rose square.  I was also short on time, so decided to leave my paints in the car and take some photographs.  The Texas landscape can sometimes be barren, but not this time.  Because we have had some good rain this season, the land displayed her color in all its glory.  I am continuing to discover the joys of painting the landscape and Texas has some beautiful and interesting views.

In keeping with this little Texas theme and with politics present, here is a quote from Molly Ivens .....
 Good thing we've still got politics in Texas -- finest form of free entertainment ever invented.

AND, btw, I voted yesterday ..... have you?

Virtual Paintout is a challenge using Google maps.  Bill Guffey chooses a different site  each month from any place in the world.  November's virtual trip took us to Croatia.  It certainly is a beautiful country and was fun to do a little exploring for a painting.

12x4 Oil on Panel
This was painted for the Daily Paintworks Challenge suggested by Jo MacKenzie.  Her challenge was to paint an emotion.  This young man appeared to be sad and resigned to the fact that he was arrested.  Thanks, Jo!  This was a good challenge.

These colorful kayaks appeared to be waiting for someone to take them out.  The day was clear and the water calm so it was a perfect time to be kayaking.

This painting was inspired by an evening in South Carolina.  The colors were amazing and the air was clear and held the fragrance of early autumn.  Sweet memories.
