Eagle Lake Landscape

Eagle Lake Landscape
9"x12" Oil on panel.

Another piece inspired by photos take near Eagle Lake on the 90 Alternate southwest of Houston.
If you live in the Houston area and have never made this drive, I highly recommend it.
Drive it when the wildflowers are out and you will not be disappointed.

On the 90A near Eagle Lake

"On the 90A near Eagle Lake"
9"x12", oil on panel

This was painted using brush work mixed with palette knife about 50/50. Very loose and spontaneous work with bold color. I used photos taken on the 90 Alternate between Richmond and Eagle Lake. Lots of nice ranch land on that route.

Field of Blue

"Field of Blue"
9"x12" oil on linen panel

What a fun piece to paint. I love scenes like this. A nice distant view, a field full of bluebonnets and other wildflowers with a beautiful blue Texas sky!
