The Oil Painters Society met this weekend for a paintout in Glen Rose, Texas, about 1 1/2 hours drive southwest of Dallas. The temperature has finally cooled off a little after our record setting hot summer, so we had a super turnout for the plein air event, almost 30 really fine artists! It was exciting to be in such great company. The first morning a number of us painted Barnard's Mill next to the Art Museum (notice the stone building to the left, typical of Hill Country architectural material). The Paluxy River flows just behind the mill, or at least it would flow if it had any water in it. Lack of rain and the extreme heat have left a dry river bed for now.
