"New Sweden Church" --- Sold


On Thursday morning, I joined the Plein Air Austin group and painted this beautiful church. It was so wonderful painting with PAA again. I was a member for many years, but have not been active for a long time. This paint out was arranged by my friend Robert. As a matter of fact, he scarifies quite a bid finding this location. Several years ago. Robert was bicycling near Manor, Texas. He had a bad fall on a country road and lost two of his front teeth. With a blood covered face, he stood up and found this beautiful place. "What a painting it is!" Robert thought. Now he is back and with many artists coming with him. I felt quite good about what I did. The greys work nicely. I appreciate so much that many friends sharing their grey recipes with me. I can't wait to try them all.

A small sacrifice for the larger good! (: I love the little patch of bright on the roof. Wonderful.

Looks like you have already worked out your greys. This couldn't be more perfect! It's fun to see both your and Laurel's paintings of the New Sweden Church.

I really like this one. It is such a different look from your still life work. I especially like the loose quality, soft color palette.
