Yes! We have green!

We had a cold front come through, and I paid for not taking a painting sweater with me this morning. I shivered for a while, and decided to paint from the back of the car with the picnic blanket draped over my shoulders for warmth. It was seventy six degrees. Hahaha! I love Texas.

We have been getting some good rain over the past week and sprigs of fresh green grass are perking up all over the place. This is one of the greenest views I have seen in a while!

Back for a short while!

This is more of a test run than anything. My regular blog is not accessible to me via iPhone, yet, so this is the way to go for a bit.

Let's talk November 2011.....
I've been preparing for almost a year now for the 2011 Fall Show at Whistle Pik Galleries where Wanda Choate, Jerry Ricketson, Brian Grimm and I will be showcased. I am very excited about all the new work that will go up. I have ten new pieces going into the show (plus whatever tiny Plein air bits I do, and really like, from now to then). I know Brian has some ginormous paintings I am dying to see, and I have had a few glimpses of the absolute beauty Wanda has coming. Jerry's new paintings are total mystery to me at this point, but I love his work, so it's worth the wait.
The reception is Friday November 4..... And I'd send you a link to Whistle Pik's event page, but I don't know how to do that on this app! Hahaha!

I attached an image of one of my Show pieces to this post and am not sure how it will turn out, but here are the specs on it:
