Adventures in plein air.

Unfortunately, this painting excursion didn't pay off.  The sun came up behind the clouds.  At least the ice coffee was good.

Summer Sunset 03

I really like sunsets because you can paint in full light until it gets dark.  With sunrises I'm using small LED lights attached to my easel.

Summer Sunset 01

Arrived just in time to catch a beautiful abstract sunset.  It didn't take me long to finish this because every paintstroke was inspired by the view in front of me. Pure joy in creating this.

Sunrise Study - South Texas 3

Painted from life.  Every morning I have my plein air dog with me.  He likes to get out and sniff around.  He then gets back in the front seat and takes a nap as I paint.

Stayed at home today and painted in the front yard.  I moved out to the country so there are trees all around.

Summer Sunrise 11

I now carry a frame with me when I paint outdoors.  It helps me decide if the painting is finished or not.  It also protects it on the way home.

Sunset Colors

 One of my favorites. I drove out to Canyon Lake, TX. It's pretty rural out there.  I've actually done a few paintings out here. This night everything clicked and I brought home this stunning sunset.

Summer Sunrise 09

This was interesting.  Before I drove out I looked at the cloud cover and the moonlight and saw it was very cloudy.  At this point I make a decision to go out or stay in.  I decided to go out knowing some form of inspiration will hit me at some point.  Well, it did and I'm so happy I decided to go out when otherwise I would have just given up.
