I received Angela's nifty sketchbook (the theme is PLACES) and admired her artwork of her studio/workshop for hours...mulling over what place I would do. Surveying my workplace, I decided that a painting of a trash dump or disaster scene just wouldn't look too good. So I chose a Texas scene instead...a portion of my niece and her husband's place just down the road a ways.
Now Texans have some strange ways. Take trees for instance. When they aren't using trees for hanging hoss thieves, or crashing their pickups into, or barbecuing something....they stick bottles on em. The tradition supposedly stems from old Indian lore of capturing evil spirits in the bottles. Hmm. OK. So I did a couple of bottle trees and some other stuff they have around their yard.
The painting measures 7 and a half by 9 and a half and was done in acrylics (new SOHO brand) and perspiration. It's on its way to you, Liz...if it can make it through y'all's blizzard.
