Hill Country Landscape Painting, Baron's Creek

This original oil painting was painted on the bank of Baron's Creek in the Texas Hill Country.

Baron's Creek, Study

Baron's Creek meanders through the Fredericksburg area. I was painting there with my dear friend Vanaly Palmer. We decided to catch a very quick study of the creek before it got dark. It was fall, cool and lovely as always! The sun was setting in front of us, back lighting the creek. The orange sky was beautiful.

Vanaly is a delight to paint with. She loves adventure and is always ready for any outing.


Baron's Creek, Study

Baron's Creek, Study, is available on my web site. It's 8 inches tall by 10 inches wide. This small landscape study is priced at $85.00. I've painted a larger piece from this study. I have it in a "possible" frame. This piece is about 28 x 32. I'll take a better picture of it later with out the frame. I can color correct it better that way.


Here's a quick peak into my studio. Trust me, this is just a part of the paint that I have!


Please visit my Etsy store for original watercolor and oil paintings priced from $10.00 to $395.00.

This is a lovely painting Jean!
I believe you when you tell us it's only part of the paint you have! I also have a ton...... I'm an art supply junkie!

I love the "peak" into your studio. I feel like if people saw the bins and bins of paint and supplies, they'd wonder how we even work. :-)

Brenda said...

Lora, thank you so much! I subscribed to your lovely blog with bloglines.


Hey Nancy - Those bins work pretty good, and it's easy to keep them organized by 6 colors. But, alas, like I said, that's not all!! It is really is a good help for what I'm not using at the moment that's on my work table. It would be so fun to find you in F'burg one day!


Hey Manon! Oh yeah, we need to keep it a secret!! I'm glad you like my painting. Thank you so much.


Monique - it's fun to show little pics of my studio! Oh yes, as Manon says, "supply junkie!!"

Michelle, thank you. I love that sky. Love that orange sky!! It's always a thrill when I can get that into a painting and have it right!


Hey Brenda, I'm glad you stopped by. Thank you!


Marionette, thank you! Your blog and newsletter are awesome, by the way!
