Evening On The Marsh

Painted at the end of the day, I worked to finish before the light was gone. A party on a nearby deck kept me company while the marsh grass’ color dared me to paint it. I love the grass patterns through the water and the skyline in the distance.

Barton Springs Pool

Austin’s iconic Barton Springs Pool grants relief from the summer heat at a steady 68 degrees year round. It’s a treasure for the city and a refreshing place to paint in the summer.

Enlarging Wall Sculpture

I’m so excited about today’s studio work. Sometimes it takes several months to gain enough distance from a project to change direction. My artist friend, Elwood Howell, reminded me of the value of drawing in charcoal to conceptualize and it was so freeing to work this way again. The wall sculpture enlargement of “In God’s Paint Box” has been on hold while Ampersand tweaked production of the boards, but I waited beyond that to start the work. Knowing that there were changes to make in the shapes and support structure, but unsure of what to do, charcoal drawing opened up creative doors. I’ll be cutting wood soon!
