Sunrise on the Trail - 6" x 6" - Oil on Archival Panel - Available here
Day 30 of 31 paintings in 31 days... Painted this morning on the Butler hike and bike trail on Lady Bird Lake in Austin, TX. Sunrise is one of my favorite times to be out on the trail. This morning, it was cool, but not too cold...perfect for a brisk walk. I felt like I wanted to keep working on this one, but I ran out of time. The light changes so fast at the beginning and end of the day!
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.
