Saturday Morning
Oil on panel, 11"x14"

Another scene near La Grange, Texas.
Wheels on the Bus...
Oil on panel, 8"x10"

I found this bus sitting under these large Oak trees between Hallettsville and La Grange. It makes me think of all the kids that rode it to and from school and all the laughter and horseplay that went on inside of it.

Spring Greens

Oil on panel, 6"x8"

Another scene near Hallettsville, Texas. I painted this pretty fast like the last one. Mostly completed in a single 1.5 hr session.
Ranch and Cow
Oil on panel, 8"x6"

This was painted pretty fast, I'm trying to gain back some of the spontaneity and freshness the quicker paintings have. This scene is from the GC ranch in Point Comfort, Texas.
Clouds and Waves
Oil on panel, 8"x6"

This is the last of the paintings I started en plein air in Destin, Florida. Again I have adjusted much of the painting in the studio hardly justifying en plein air status.
