"Mountain Guard"

A lone cowboy stands guard overlooking a mountain range. I actually spotted this cowboy at the cattle drive in the Ft. Worth Stockyards and just substituted the Stockyard buildings for the mountains.

"Pelican Point"

oil on gesso board

Headed to White Rock Lake early Monday morning to paint with our plein air group, driving in the most beautiful hazy fog. I arrived at this cove where you could see nothing but shades of gray with the dark outline of the trees and a few of the fall colors peeking through the mist. By the time we unloaded our cars and were set up to paint, we were greeted with this clear sunny day. There were numerous pelicans just off to the left, thus the name, Pelican Point.
