Texas Trip

Here are some paintings from a recent trip to Texas.  I went with 5 other artists and we stayed on a ranch an hour and a half West of Austin, near Llano.  It was beautiful landscape, much different from what I see and paint around Pennsylvania.

Winter In Willow Park


9x12 oil

I was happy that we had a brief little snow storm last week.  It was just enough snowfall to make everything pretty - and it wouldn't be winter until I got to paint a snow scene :)
This was painted in Willow Park, Camp Hill.

Gallery Grand


16x16 oil

On Saturday I did a 3 hour demonstration painting at Smith Custom Framing, where I have a featured exhibit through the month of February.  I chose to paint the piano in the gallery.  It was fun to observe all the reflections in the shiny black surface and translate them to paint.  That is the reflection of my drop cloth and legs in the front of the piano.


The exhibit will remain hanging in the gallery through the month of February.
