I've painted at Becker Vineyards often and have painted this cabin many times. It's simply a charming place that I never tire of. The grounds are beautiful and the lavender fields behind the vineyards are amazing. I haven't painted the grape vines yet. Yet. This is a wonderful stop if you're visiting the Texas Hill Country.
"Becker's Cabin" is 11 inches tall by 14 inches wide, and is available on my web site for $395.00. I painted this on location and then further developed it in my studio. Detail:
Last week I went out to a friend's farm. We hiked around for hours and took a bunch of photos. Photographer In Training is sooo fun to go out and play with! One of my favorite shots show the drought conditions we have right now. The fall and winter have been dry, no rain at all. Her goats are used to humans giving them supplemental feed because of the dry conditions. They thought that we had dinner. In no time we were surrounded.
The day was getting late and we were shooting into the sun. The dust kicked up by the goats created quite a cloud. (They will follow you anywhere if they think you have food!) The effect of the back lighting and dust was pretty neat.
Thank you Genie, I had a great time!
As the Cracker Head Crumbles was so kind to feature me on his blog again. He showed the painting below on his "Sunday Drive" post.
Here's another little peek into my studio.
This is my watercolor table. I love this mug. It's a perfect place for some of my brushes.
