I am working on creating a painting of the houses on my street in the early evening when the light is fading. There is a lot of architecture in this scene and there is more work to be done. There is also more color in the lawn than you see here, purples, etc.. But, I think I am close. These are lovely old homes.
This is a plein air painting I did standing above a bluebonnet field near Fredericksburg, Texas. The private road that meanders through these fields of grazing cattle and bluebonnets is called the Willow City Loop. This is the prettiest site on the road. We were told by a local rancher not to wander into the field due to rattlesnakes hiding under the flowers!
"Lavender Valley" 18 X 24 inch oil (c)Ann McCann 2018
This is a field of lavender and sunflowers were we painted in Provence. This is the first large studio painting I have done of this scene. I wish you could smell the perfume and hear the bees buzzing. What a wonderful day, plein air painting in this very spot.
Roman Bridge in Spain (Granada) 9 X 12 Oil (c)Ann McCann 2018
I have pretty much sold all my plein air paintings from Spain. They were a hit at my show here at the dental school last fall. This one is still in my inventory. This is an overlook in the ancient city of Toledo with a real Roman bridge in the distance. It is still in use! The building on the top of the cliff is an old monastery.
"Adobe Moon Grande" 16 X 20 Oil (c) Ann McCann 2018
I did a small painting of this Santa Fe scene and decided to go bigger for my show. There was a super moon that night so it was pretty big at dusk. This scene has almost every Santa Fe feature- chamisa, juniper, adobe and mountains!
"Hibiscus Duo Grande" 16 X 20 Oil (c) Ann McCann 2018
I am getting ready for a show at the UT Southwestern Medical School Faculty Club in March. So, I am concentrating on creating larger paintings for the show. I did a small 5X7 of this image a while ago and decided to go big with it. My hairdresser supplied the flowers!
"White Flower Canyon" 20 X 24 Oil (c) Ann McCann 2018
I will miss this one and the memories that go with it. Our family had a wonderful trip to Big Bend in December 2017. My daughter came home from overseas to go with us. I love the white flowers (whatever they are!) and the rose/blue cliffs. I know the new owner will enjoy it too.
