Partly Sunny - 6" x 6" Oil on Panel - Available here
Day 10 of the Strada Easel 30 paintings in 30 days challenge:"Partly Sunny". This morning I set up my umbrella and easel while the sky was still dripping rain. I'd only have a small window of time between rain storms and other activities to get my painting in. The crepe myrtles have been so beautiful this year, and I wanted a couple m ore shots at them before they fade.
Patricia Butler loves to paint. Living and working in Austin, Texas, she is drawn to the beauty around her and the challenge of capturing the essence of the scene before her. She counts herself very blessed to be living in Austin, which is a vibrant, growing city, and, with its multitude of lovely parks and nearby lakes and hill country, it presents endless inspiration. She is a founding member of Plein Air Austin, and enjoys painting with the group any chance she gets.
