Zilker on a Silver Day - 6" x 6" - Oil on Linen Panel - Available here
Day 27 of the Strada Easel 31 day painting challenge. I didn't get out of the house in time to paint this morning, when it was sunny, & by the time I went out at noon, the sun was filtering through the clouds, shedding a silvery light on the land. I went to Zilker park. adjacent to our office complex, and, even though it is usually more fun to try to capture sunlight, I went ahead and started painting to keep up the practice. There is always something happening at Zilker. People walking dogs, people walking people, friendly games of Frisbee golf, etc.
