Texas Colorscapes

16X20
Oil on Canvas

One of the prettiest places to visit in historic Fredericksburg, Texas, is a drive called The Loop just outside of town. The trees and hills are beautiful backdrops for the cactus and wildflowers, and if you wait about five minutes you usually will see deer, too. This painting, Fredericksburg Glow, was finished this week from my studio on Saturday, with help from my three furry assistants.

That's Beautiful, Nancy! The colors are great. I love the colors in the sky, too! One of my favorite things is a day with blue skies! (Not gray and rainy like today!!)
