Saturday (5/8) Plein Air Austin met in Driftwood, Texas.  It started out as a cloudy, blustery day, but at one point the sun shone through for a moment:

Later, I turned my attention to the old depression era gas station, abandoned on this scenic Texas backroad (11X15):

  1. I like both of these but the gas station is priceless. We don’t see many of these left these days. For awhile they sat, unused.Most have been torn down.

  2. Robert,

    Killer job on the Texaco station. It’s really fabulous. Love the whimsical quality, yet there’s plenty of detail to define the environment. And a GREAT job giving it the look of a bright morning. Very inviting.

    • Thanks Stephen…Sorry I cropped you out of the painting but the split focus didn’t work. I am glad you liked it even sans you. Nice comments. I appreciate them. (Sorry for the delayed response. Just now found your comment in gmail).
