Brazos River at Pecan Plantation


PLEIN AIR PAINT OUT,
PECAN PLANTATION
on the shore of the
BRAZOS RIVER

Several Artists got together a couple of
weeks ago to paint outdoors on the
shore of the Brazos River in Pecan Plantation
near Granbury, Texas.
It was a cold and overcast Saturday
morning. We started early about 8 am to
paint the fall foliage of golds and reds.
Even though the weather conditions weren't
perfect we enjoyed God's pretty scenery.
Below is a picture of the painting I did with the photo
of the scene below it.

Here I am bundled up with my new plein air cart that has a
small chair attached to it.  I like to sit and paint. Others have their
own set ups and like to stand.

A Fun Plein Air Paint Out

Cedar Creek Lake House Painting Retreat '09


CANVAS BY CANVAS
A group of artists who paint individually
and collaboratively


The CBC Artists went on a four
day painting retreat the end of October.
We stayed at a Lake House on Cedar Creek Lake.
What fun we had being focused for several days on
just painting!  We had a ton of fun laughing, talking and ate some
wonderful meals.  Artists are good cooks, too.
Some of the group went to Canton's First Monday and
shopped till they dropped bringing back bargains galore!
We were quite productive during our painting time. About 30
pieces of art were produced including drawings, oil, watercolor and
acrylic paintings, pen & ink sketches, collage and pastel.
I've posted two acrylics and a pastel I painted on the retreat.
