Winter Wonderland - Texas Style - 6" x 6" - Oil on Archival Panel - Available here
Happy New Year to us all! Today started out cloudy, and I didn't see anything out my window that didn't look gray. But, since I had committed to paint from life everyday this month, I went out anyway to Bull Creek, only about 10 minutes from home, and was rewarded with a beautiful scene to paint. Then the sun came out and the water was dazzling. I feel very rusty, but, from experience, I know that improvement comes with practice. #stradaeasel
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.
