I my quest for places to paint,  I went to Palmetto State Park near Luling, TX. These ducks hung out near the banks of the lake. The ducks are a star attraction and get fed bread by the campers so when they see a group of kids walking towards them they run over to meet them.
This was a great place to paint and I will go back when the weather is better in the Spring and early Summer.

Greenbelt Corridor Park, TX, Early Morning

This is another scene from the same park. The dense trees let slices of light cast across the road.

Greenbelt Corridor Park, TX


Greenbelt Corridor Park, TX

This park is just north of Dallas. My son J and I took a walk down this road just as the sun as coming up. I took pictures to take back to the studio to paint. The light in the middle of the picture is the focal point.

Hill Country Road


Hill Country Road

The light was interesting coming from the middle left of the painting behind the trees that lost their leaves. The shadows across the road lead the eye to the other side.

Sisterdale, TX


Sisterdale, TX

Sisterdale is in the Hill Country with a lot of off road scenery like this. I wanted to capture this thin slice of bright light that came through the clouds.

Welfare, TX


Welfare, TX

Welfare is a small community just north of Boerne, TX. The country road that winds through it has a lot to paint and I go there often. This was early in the morning with this huge expanse of shadow that contrasts the ranch house.

Blanco State Park, TX


Blanco State Park, TX

I spent a good deal of Spring and Summer, 2014, scoping out state parks for a place to paint. Blanco is half way between Boerne and Austin and it is a great place to paint with lots to go back to. Most state parks are very good for camping and recreation, but now always loaded with scenery for a painter. 
This was painted on an overcast day but warm enough for visitors to swim.
