Sunrise at Tandy Hills

Sunrise at Tandy Hills
8 x 10
oil on canvas
This weekend I participated in Prairie Fest at Tandy Hills Park. My friend Sheri Jones and I were the first two to start painting. On the drive over the sky was just grey. But, by the time I set up, the sky was an orange/yellow color with purple clouds. I was amazed that it changed so much. It made waking up at 5:30 worth it.
 It was a great day, I finished five 8 x 10s in all. Many of my really talented friends participated also including Sheri Jones, Blair Currin, Olivette Hubler, Carol Ivey, Steve Miller, Claudia Davis, Janice Weaver and Tina Bohlman. I was fortunate to buy two paintings in the silent auction, a cactus painting by Sheri  and a view of Fort Worth's skyline by Blair


  1. I like this, Doug!! I've painted the tree on the left when out there at another time. Love all the interesting trunks. Beautiful soft colors in your sky. VERY nice!!

  2. Je suis certaine que ce fut une journée délicieuse pour vous et l'ensemble de vos amis peintres... Je ressens beaucoup de douceur dans cette peinture et son atmosphère traduit une grande sérénité, accompagnée d'une merveilleuse harmonie de couleurs.

  3. Great job, Doug. Sounds like a good day to be painting. So sorry I missed it.
    Maybe next year!
