Deep Eddy Pool House

For three years my dear friend and fellow painter, Laurel Daniel, and I have painted at Deep Eddy Pool sometime during the heat of Austin’s summer. We get there early and finish painting as it’s really getting hot. Then we jump into the spring fed pool and cool off. It doesn’t get better than that!

Hill Country Spring

“Hill Country Spring” is another 5” x 7” I did recently in my studio from a plein air watercolor. I wasn’t satisfied with the original painting and the studio time gave me another shot at it. I usually work larger, but it has been a great exercise in focusing on what really makes a painting work. This version captures the scene better than the original.
