One afternoon I was out taking a walk on the road where we used to live on the other side of Chattanooga. I came upon this fence post, which was a big old trunk of a tree. It was so beautiful because it looked as if there was a bouquet of leaves sticking out of its top. There was actually a little tree growing just an inch away from it on the right which made it look just like a vase. It was just a sweet little sight that made a happy little painting.
What a pleasure it was to paint on this Raymar panel (smooth cotton).
... as we jumped over the fence ignoring the "Posted" signs, we knew there was going to be a wonderful sight to behold just a few more yards around the corner. We hoped we wouldn't get caught and were taking a big chance. You know, these Tennessee folks don't take it kindly when you walk onto their property. They often carry shotguns and they mean business! As we walked around the bend, whispering so no one would here, this sight fell in front of us. WOW!! We knew it would be worth our while!! Obviously, no one saw us so we got lots of photos, jumped back over the fence, got into the car and sped away!! Now that was exciting!!
This is another ridgeline view that I painted last night and today. It's been a while since I painted so just wanted to do something simple. As the painting progressed, it told me it wanted bluebonnets and paintbrushes, so I put them in. It's just a little piece - 5"x7", oils on canvas board.
My girlfriend, Linda, and I went out plein air painting one afternoon and as we were set up next to this hay field a big thunderstorm suddenly came over us. We barely made it to the car with our equipment before it started raining with lots of thunder and lightening!
