  1. Wow! Those are awesome. Such a tough subject. I’ve tried it several times and it’s always a challenge. Please check out my gallery at http://www.jfrederickart.com

  2. Wonderful work, Robert. Great colors and energy to these pieces. It is indeed a challenge to paint, as the capitol bldg has so many details. Hope to see you soon.

    • Hey Baron… What a pleasant surprise.  I hope to see you soon as well…My Saturdays are taken until June but then I plan to make the Plein Air Austin paintouts at that point. Hope to see you out painting.  Very good to hear from you.. Take care, Robert

    I really enjoyed the openness of this blog.

  5. Wow, Robert, an inspiration to get back to brushes and paper. My back is still contrary, but your work is encouraging to try again! Hope you are well and classes are going well. If I’m lucky, I’ll be back in the fall.
