I found this colorful bush on my way to paint to the Marina on Lake Granbury. This was the brightest subject I could find on this gray and overcast morning.

We traveled to Palo Duro Canyon last weekend and rented a room on the rim. It didn't take me ten minutes after arriving before I had the paint box out and I was painting. The sun was setting quickly and the paint was flying. How exciting!

This was completed at a three day workshop with Qiang Huang. I learned a lot about dramatic lighting and setting up a still life. Look for new work with influences from him. He is part of the Daily painter movement, posting a painting a day. He works a full time job and manages to paint at night. Amazing.

I painted this while participating in Last Friday Gallery Night in Granbury. I was painting at Stringfellow's Restaurant by the window. A storm blue in and the clouds got darker and darker. Between that and the romantic light in the restaurant it was a challenge. To top it off the electricity went out. It was time to go but I still managed to paint a bright happy picture.
