This is my 3rd demo on my Austin plein air painting workshop. We went Oasis (a wonderful restaurant by Lake Travis). I painted this one on the balcony facing the big lake. It was a very cold day. The wind was strong and raining too. We had to go inside to get warm and then come out painting, back and forth quite a few times. Oasis was very kind to us, and allow all of us painting inside the restaurant in the afternoon.

I did a plein air painting workshop in Austin before Thanksgiving. It was a cold day. Thank God it did rain that day. I want to thank Linda Carter for allowing us to use her property for the class. There was an old sailboat in the marina. It is kind of interesting.
I am very excited to announce that Derek Penix will come to Austin again in April 2019 and teach a 4-day painting workshop. Derek is a true rising star artist. I know so many artists want to develop a loose and energetic painting style, but it is not easy. Derek really has the know-how. I just love his way of painting. If you are like me, and want paint loose, please check: http://www.qh-art.com/derek-penix-2019-workshop.html. Derek's workshop fills up fast. Please sign up as quick as you can.
Continuing on my slow motion blog posting, this is my plein air of the old San Angelo Movie Cinema. It is no longer in use. I decided painted a monochromatic one. It gives a nostalgic feeling. I am very fortunate. This painting has been collected by San Angelo Fine Art Museum.
