This is a new oil painting of the early August Sycamore. It is on Highway 90 West on the north side of the highway at Pinto Creek. It is 20x16, painted on gessoed panel. I plan to take photos of this same tree all through the fall and winter. A catalog of the seasonal changes will be interesting, and give me lots of painting ideas. My original blog post on Sycamore trees is on August 26 in the Flora and Fauna Report. You can click here see the original post and the reference photo.

I painted a 12x9 oil of my garden zinnias, wild cosmos, and marigolds last year. This piece is sold, you can see it on my web site here.
I just grabbed the camera and got outside as quickly and quietly as possible, trying to not scare the deer. These are a bit grainy, I had to use the optical zoom to capture it. That is the chain to my porch swing in the middle of the shot. Again, these are not good shots, but the subject matter was too good to pass up. ( apologies to any photographers out there!)
We have white tail deer in this part of Texas. I never tire of watching them.
Until next time!
