Grazing in the Sun:Field Study 7x5 oil painting

 I came across one of these, longhorns I think, while I was exploring the hill country not too far from Johnson City,TX. I was attracted to the warmth reflected up and into the shadow of its massive form. Maybe I will see him again sometime soon.

River Crossing:Field Study 7x5 oil painting

 I had stumbled upon a heard of around 15 of these little guys, grazing on cypress trees by the river's edge. I'n the past I'd hear them echoing along the limestone cliff sides I'd explore, but had not seen the full herd till yesterday. I wadded into the current and found a boulder to paint from while one of them crossed the river. I guess all my exploring of the hill country is paying off because I have new ideas to try out.

Sunbather:Field Study 7x5 oil painting

I had gone to McKinney Falls this morning and studied this reptile bathing in the light, which was challenging for me because the log it was on slowly rotated in the torrent of the upper falls. So, I did a quick gesture,drawing, and glanced back at the scene for the colors.

Pedernales River Sunset 7x5 Oil Painting

This vantage point wasn't easy to find, but I'm glad I kept scrambling up the limestone ledges with my gear to try it:

I like seeing barbed wire because it's a sign telling me I've explored all I can and that it's time to go onto the next one.
