China Grove, TX

I painted this before Christmas.  Matter of fact, I finished it on Christmas Eve.  I went out there several times to catch the right lighting.  It takes about 20 minutes to get to China Grove from San Antonio.  It was about 4pm and I had to hurry because the sun was setting at 5:30pm.  I put on my finishing touches and went home.  This is the same China Grove as in the Doobie Bros. song.

Roses (a)

I had trouble getting started in the morning so I challenged myself on Facebook.  I had to paint something in 2 hours and post it to my account.  I posted it but I felt it needed to be worked on some more.  Most of the time this is dangerous territory.  I could possibly ruin the painting by overworking it.  Luckily, this came out perfectly. I started at 11:30am and posted at 1:30pm.  At 4:30pm I finally finished. 

This was my painting after two hours.

3 Roses

I used the same flowers from Roses. Most of the roses I buy never make it into a finished painting, these made in two.

White Pumpkin

I started this painting as a warm up for a larger painting.  I soon realized this may be one of my best paintings.  I love it.
