"Coolin' Off"

11 x 14
oil on stretched canvas

Knew one of these days that my photo of this dog would become a painting! I was out at one of the local parks painting en plein air when this dog jumped in the nearby water fountain, was so glad I had my camera with me to capture this happy guy coolin' off!
Have been painting so many local historical buildings lately for two upcoming shows that I had to "take a break" and paint something else. This one made me happy!

"Pilot Grove Church-1895"

9 x 12
oil on canvas

Pilot Grove Church is one of the older structures at Dallas Heritage Village, home to the largest and finest collection of 19th century pioneer and Victorian homes and commercial buildings in Texas. 
Several days of plein air painting this week with the wonderful cooler July temps, and Heritage Park offers limitless painting opportunities.
