Country School House #1

In our county there are a great number of country schoolhouses that have been restored and maintained. This is one that is several miles up the road from us. My goal is to eventually paint them all. I think there are more than 20.

True Blue

Yet another bluebonnet painting! They were everywhere this past spring. Actually, I am not particularly fond of most traditional bluebonnet paintings because I think many of them tend to get too "dotty" with lots and lots of blue and white dots. So maybe this doesn't even look like bluebonnets. But it is the way I saw it without my glasses!

Red Boat and Red Barn

I posted this painting (or a version of it) last week. When I looked it on the blogsite, it bore little resemblance to the actual work. I so took it down and tried photographing it in many different places and lights. I hope this looks better than the last attempt. I did make a few changes to it also. It is from a photograph I took several weeks ago when we were on a canal cruise in Copenhagen.
