Limestone Floor, McKinney Falls 8"x10" oil on canvas panel

Took Stella to McKinney Falls on Sat. March 26th. The heat was in the 90's with 75% humidity. Unfortunately for Stella, dogs were not allowed to swim and the falls were very inviting. Leading into the lower falls is this long stretch of flat limestone that drops off to 20 foot cliffs. I found this wonderful tree popping out below the edge and just getting it's spring foliage.

Walnut Creek Cliffs


Went out for a Saturday morning bike ride at walnut Creek and found this area off on a side path.
Got home, ate lunch and took Stella back out, it's a no leash park, and painted while she enjoyed the water.

Red Bud


Painted this 8x10 at lunch yesterday. The creek is close to my studio by one of the local TV stations. I kept seeing this Red Bud from the road and finally took some time to capture it. I spent about an hour on it.

Almost Spring


The last February weekend was overcast until the late afternoon on Sunday, so I rushed out to my favorite area and did this quick painting to capture the waning sun. 8x10, oil on panel.
