Lady Bird's Jewels 2 - 6" x 6" - Oil on Linen Canvas - SOLD
Day 29 of 31 days of painting a painting a day... My thanks go out to Brian Mark Taylor and the #stradaeasel Crew and to Leslie Saeta for providing incentive for me to complete 31 days of making a painting every single day. There is no better way to get better at anything that daily contemplative practice. This scene is just a few feet away from yesterday's painting. The lovely lime greens backlit against the turquoise water get me everytime. I posted a picture of the setup with the scene in the background, so that you can see the water really is this color!
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.
