Central Market Park

This is a little park behind our Central Market. This painting was done in Plein Air (outside) today. It's a 6 x 8 oil on panel. It was a very windy day. Luckily we found a spot behind a building that still had a great view.

This is 6 x 8. Oil on Panel. This painting was done for the DPW Painting Challenge. The photo was put up by Linda. She's texting and sitting on a fountain. I left the fountain a bit abstract. I really like the horizontal next to the vertical figure.

Boggy Creek Market

After walking around the farmers market and taking photographs, watching the chickens and talking to fellow plein air painters, I decided on a simple flower bush. The painting is actually a little warmer color in person. Just so you know it is an actual plein air painting, you can see the grass that is on the painting. Just kidding. I didn't realize there was grass on it until I cropped the image. This is a 6 x 8 Oil on panel.

The Sky is Falling

I named this painting after "Chicken Little". Although the KFC commercial kept coming to my head, "Chicken Genius". I didn't want people to misunderstand and think I was calling my painting genius. However, I'm thinking this is probably one smart chicken. This is from the DPW challenge where lots of talented artists each paint the same photo. I left some dripping in this painting because I liked the effect. This is 6 x 6 Oil on Gessoboard panel.

Zilker Botanical Gardens

I apologize that this is a little blurry. In my haste to get it photographed and on my blog, I didn't take a great photo. HOWEVER, tomorrow I intend to go in and lighten up some areas so I will take a better photo after my changes. This painting is done plein air, on location at Zilker's beautiful Botanical Gardens. It is 6 x 8 Oil on Panel. It may even have a little earth from the Zilker garden in with the oil paint! Just so you will know it's authentic....
