Bull Creek  12x16"
Oil on canvas board. Framed size: 17 x 21"
$295 framed + tax (TX only) + $17 sh/h.

Happy to send a photo of this one framed. A favorite among my family members. Original post: Since boxes still surround me and I haven't been able to set up my easel, I am posting a painting I completed before moving. Love this one! I painted it in Laurel Daniel's plein air class and it was exhibited this summer in an AVAA juried show at the Scarborough Building in downtown Austin. As for the studio - the good news is my art board is up, and my next-to-the-easel table is up. Just have to set up my easel and buy new paints. I learned in Carol Marine's workshop that it's not optimum to buy paints with the word "hue" in them - it means they have added some filler to the paint preventing you from achieving the richest color. So bye-bye Cad Red Hue and Cad Yellow Hue! Hello cad red and cad yellow.

SHHHHHHhhhhh.... don't spoil the Christmas present surprise! And... NO hues are GOOD hues (a little art humor!). Yes, they may look fine, but they won't age well, and if you're asking people to pay good money..... you can't cheap out. This is a lovely piece - moving water is hard - you are not afraid to tackling tough subjects are you? Nice piece. I can't wait to see your new stuff.
