I had painted this scene as a demo for an art class in Del Rio and gave it away that night. I decided to paint it again, this time spending a more time on it to bring it to further completion.

Darrell

 

"Darrell"
18"x24" Oil

I painted this a while back and wasn't really happy with it. It has been sitting in the corner waiting for me to do something with it. So, I just finished repainting it. I simplified the background which helped, it had to much detail before. I also grayed down some of the color to allow the longhorn to dominate the painting. Overall, much better.

I will upload to my website soon.

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.
