Saturday's sunrise in Calvert, TX yielded two small paintings, both of which show the great color and atmosphere of the morning. See yesterday's post on my BLOG. Below is a shot at the easel and a few folks in the group...thanks for the pics, Charles!
The thing that caused the "ahhHA!" in this painting, was the scene itself! Someone in the group noticed the REFLECTION of the sunlight on THE GRASS! It helped that the grass was really damp from the dewy fog, causing reflection, but even dry grass would reflect the sunlight when it's this intense!
HEY TO FRIENDS IN the DFW area! THIS Saturday, Oct. 25 in Waxahachie is the Texas Country Reporter Festival! It features great food and music and some special guests (like me!). I will have a booth full of selections from "Last Year on the Farm", and a few other surprises! Please come see me on the courthouse square!
Have you checked the paintings on my son's project web auction site, Texas Louvre? Bargains will be there for just about 2 more weeks. I am adding a few more there tomorrow!
