Henry's pasture

Henry's pasture  |  Flanegan  |  sold
We received over two inches of rain which was quite heavenly. In between torrential downpours and a bit of hail, the fog lingered in for a visit and we had a chat. I love how it transforms the Texas landscape and find it so comforting.
Once I found a spot, set up and sat down to paint (I don't have an easel yet), I had wished the fencing was not in my sight line. Then I saw the light in the raindrops, the deer grazing nearby and the birds flushed out by my dog, Tru - which I would never have experienced had my only reference been a photograph of the pasture. Love getting out of the studio.
Near freezing temps are forecast for this evening. I miss my Ohio.

Shy in the studio

Shy in the studio, study 1 | Flanegan   |  8 x 6  |  $100

This is my Shyni Tsunami. A few years back and a couple of broken ribs later, I discovered that he was aptly named by his former owner.

Even though it was a cloudy day when I took this photo, he looked so ethereal peering inside. My current focus is experimenting with various light conditions and I found this overcast day quite challenging. Muddying-up the values came a little too easy, but I'm happy with this one. Onto the next!

What's not to love about a fresh start?
Blue sky...sunbeams striping the landscape...wagging tails during a morning stroll. Here's to new beginnings.
