Morning Overlook

Morning Overlook_____18x18 plein air study on linen panel____$1620, if you were not in the workshop :)
I think this is the last post I will make from my recent workshop in Fredericksburg, TX. It was another "big sky" morning, where the clouds seem HUGE and soft, because they float so low...the summer morning sky is something I remember from my youth, so it brings back those childhood memories for me! We painted this on the last morning, from Bill and Nancy Bush's place. Check out Nancy's work...then check again in a few months...she has a unique style and is one of my favorite artists, because her works are always fresh!
I talked with Bill, today, and I am all set to teach next summer during the same week, June 13 - 15. We will paint during the cool and color of the day, in a unique split schedule (an early morning session, midday break and a late afternoon session each day)...this will provide fun opportunities for sight seeing, shopping or extra studio time. We also can explore the museums and galleries of the area, and there are some good ones! Let me know if you need more info, or contact Bill to register!

What a lovely piece, V!

Painting during the cooler parts of the day makes sense to me, having just returned from Ft. Worth this last weekend--whew!

The sky in this painting is so alive I love it.
