|Beach Houses 10"x12" oil on canvas|
The first one, a beach scene from Galveston Island, Texas, was practically still wet when I photographed it. Our family went to Galveston for the first week in June and I painted it plein air. It was hot and it took me two morning sessions, but I ended up with a painting I am pleased with.
*Edited: The above painting, "Beach Houses" was accepted into the exhibition!!! So happy!
|Secluded Barns 16"x20" oil on canvas|
In retrospect the slight blurriness that accompanied the photo I used probably helped me paint this one a little looser than I normally paint, or one might say "impressionistically", if that's even a word.
So, fingers crossed til July 1st when AIS will announce which paintings will be accepted into the show.
