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.

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.

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.

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....
