Floor & Decor


A plein air pastel painting of a young live oak trees in front of the Floor & Decor building in north Austin Texas.

A quick 45 minute sketch of young live oak trees in the floor & decor parking lot. I really like how this one came out. It just seems to work for me. It was created using a wet pastel process on Wallis sanded paper.

Fall Grasses

Fall Grass

A plein air pastel painting of the colors of fall.

Today I planned on painting a water scene but the winds where just too strong to make good reflections, I then noticed the beautiful grasses blowing in the wind and could not resist. The colors of the grasses here in central Texas during this time of year are just amazing and very inspiring. This painting took about an hour to complete and the winds where so strong I broke my tripod head and almost lost the painting, but luck prevailed and I was able to finish the piece.
