Windmill

I wanted to try a new method on my collage, so I cut the pieces into rectangles and some squares.  I thought a windmill would be a good thing to experiment with. It was unbalanced I thought so I added a couple of black birds.  I tried blue in the sky and didn't care for it, so I went back to the white.

It is 18x18 on stretched canvas.  It was fun to do, thinking about what a precious commodity our water is , and unfortunately is dwindling in our area.

TexArt in Kerrville, TX

I spent a week in Kerrville, TX at another SKB workshop.  This one was called TexArt.  It was a great week.  David Rankin was the watercolor instructor and i really enjoyed his class.  He is an awesome instructor.  We did gray studies using paynes gray watercolor.  We also all did this same snow scene.  They all turned out great.
We also went to the Musuem of Western art in Kerrville and saw the beautiful paintings about Charles Goodnight by Lee Cable. They are awesome. Then Friday Night we went to Fredericksburg to the Hanna Gallery to see the Society of Animals exhibit. Wow! What artists they are.  If you are close by go see these awesome art pieces.



These sketches I did after I got home.
