"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.


  1. Absolutely stunning, Ann. Your autumn is lasting longer than our own. We had some beautiful colors this year but they were really short-lived. We most have bare trees now. I really love all of your work and have for years.

  2. Beautiful composition and piece Ann. The colors suggest Fall and are perfectly balanced against the beautiful water color. Super!

  3. Great fall color and light - good distance with the sailboat...spectacular effort!

  4. So lovely - the little sailboat adds the perfect touch!

  5. Beautiful autumn colors and reflections love the sail boat in the distance too.
