Hutto Stable

8"x10" oil on linen panel
Saturday was a beautiful mid-60's with slight wind and bright skies. I found this stable along with a house and outbuildings that had seen many years of neglect while I was driving down numerous County Roads in the Hutto farmland. It's actually on the other side of the field from my last studio painting, "Stories To Tell".

Stories To Tell

18"x24" oil on linen
Just finished this studio painting. Like most of my studio work, I like to take another look after a week of so just be certain I didn't miss anything. This little shack was in the middle of a field in Hutto, Texas overlooking soon to be crops. I imagine it's only time, (and money), before the farmer cuts down the trees and plows over the building.

Still Standing

8"x10" oil on linen panel
This is a cotton gin in Hutto, Texas that now plays host to the occasional farmers market and houses all of Hutto's unissued garbage bins.
Think I'll be coming back for some fresh produce soon.
