All Along The Guadalupe


This weekend, Plein Air Austin had its annual retreat in Hunt, Texas, along the Guadalupe River in the Texas Hill Country. With one of Texas' most beautiful rivers full from recent rains, non-stop sunshine and temperatures in the seventies all weekend, the timing couldn't have been better for anyone interested in painting en plein air. The picture above shows the last venue of five I painted in forty-eight hours. That's probably no big deal for some, but for me, it is definitely a lot of painting. I'll be posting each one separately, after I've had a chance to make last minute tweaks.

So, one of these days I want to paint with ya'll. Does your group let in "outsiders"? Our Spring certainly seems abundant with color and quite mild, still surprised the heat has not hit us yet. I look forward to seeing the rest of your paintings, love seeing the set-up with your painting.

Love it, Stephen! What a great time it was, and I so enjoyed painting with you--I love that you posted a picture that puts it in context--we should all do that more often.
