"Bell Tower-MSSA"

9 x 12
oil on canvas

The is the bell tower at the Monteagle Sunday School Assembly, part of the Chautaugua movement in the US at the turn of the century, located in East Tennessee between Nashville and Chattanooga.  I'll be taking it to The Gallery on the Assembly in a few weeks. This entire area is filled with quaint old Victorian homes built in the late 1800's to the early 1900's. My husband will be teaching a photography class there and I'm planning on a week of plein air painting. A little slice of early Americana!

Dallas Reunion Tower

9 x12
oil on  canvas

Painted with our Monday group of plein air painters yesterday and found this lovely spot south of downtown Dallas with the Trinity River and the top of the Reunion Tower in the background. For those of you who aren't familiar with Dallas, the tower is a big part of our skyline. An elevator takes you up 50 stories to a restaurant and observation deck.
