Yesterday was a day devoted to art. Art class, art books at the half price bookstore and a visit to San Antonio’s most inspiring art gallery. I just finished my second painting of a series of impressionistic landscapes in acrylic paint. It is a great feeling to have fun with a medium that has been challenging in the past. I see trees in my future…..
This is an oil painting that I am working on. It is on canvas. The original is 8×10 inches.
Julian Onderdonk is coming to the Witte Museum in San Antonio, September 18, 2008. Not Julian himself, but his wonderful Texas landscapes will be there and so will I. I may get arrested for drooling on them, but hey, I have friends in low places that will bail me out. He has inspired me to paint in his incomparable impressionistic way, as Andrew and Jamie Wyeth continue to inspire me to paint detail and honest realism.
