"Hold the Blue"

When I was painting plein air recently and a gentleman walked up and said "Hold the Blue"~!
He told me lived nearby and that he had seen so many painters try to paint the bluebonnets but cover the whole canvas with too many bluebonnets. I think I need a better camera because the pic of this panting actually looks bluer than the actual painting does. Anyway the fellow came back as I was packing up and he said, "hey nice job" so I think he approved. I had a great time last week painting in Brenham. The weather was great and it was fun and relaxing, the way painting should be. Thank you for looking!

"Kingsland Inn" 11x14

"Kingsland Inn" 11x14 oil on linen
This is one of the paintings I did when in England last October. We were painting in a town in the Cotswolds called Bourton on the Water. It had a little stream running right through the middle of town. This was one of the hotels there on the main street. It was actually sunny that day, one of the few that we had during the whole trip.

Thank you for looking!
