The title adds a little mystery...you're drawn into the painting by the 3 small figures in the distance; two are talking and the other has walked away... This is a watercolor, 16 x 20. I completed this painting 2 days before Christmas.
I'm delighted to announce that my painting, AWESOME AUTUMN won First Place in DeSoto Art League's annual membership show. There were 44 entries and 4 "over-all" awards; 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and honorable mention. Winning is a good "motivator"....back to work I go!
RIVER BEND RANCH - Watercolor - 8"x10" Today I spent about 3 hours cleaning up my work area; emptying the trash and sweeping up little bits of debris that is always under my drawing board. I only had a couple of hours before dinner so I decided to do a small landscape. This is the 3rd in a series of "River Bend" paintings.
