Gruene River Grille

Gruene River Grille, 10x8
SOLD

Today's post is from last Saturday's PAA paintout in Gruene, Texas, just north of New Braunfels. Once again I had to finish the piece almost a week later. I was fighting a slight fever during the outing and, contrary to the plan, being outdoors only made things worse. Happily, unfettered access to plenty of Thanksgiving food the last few days has returned things to normal.

Your diagonal brush strokes lend some energy to your painting. I love the colors, too, especially the blue on the building. Very nice! Glad you are feeling better!

Great colours and the energy and movement in the brushstrokes create a wild overgrown effect around this old weathered restaurant. Very nice!

Nice Painting and glad you are feeling better. Have you been to Cactus Jack's. The Bovine Art Assoc has a show there right now in Greune. I know a bunch of cow artists having fun.
