Spring Meadow

Spring Meadow

oil on canvas
I spent most of the day at the Paint Historic Waxahachie paintout today. It was a very enjoyable day, but hot, 100, and windy. I did one painting  at the quick draw but I need to rephotograph it so I'll post it tomorrow. I had lunch with Steve Miller and Ted Clement and their wives and Olivet Hubler. Then we all went off to find locations to paint for the afternoon. This was my second painting of the day. Most of my friends did paintings of buildings or homes but I wanted to do a landscape so I found this field on the edge of town by the bike trails. I found some shade and went to work.


  1. VERY nice, Doug! Great job with the greens and a really good composition. Hope it is cooler for you and all tomorrow!

  2. Hi, just browsing your site.
    I like the composition and depth of this one with nice colour and aerial perspective.
    I was interested in your bronzes as I used to be a bronze caster a few years ago, Cheers, Paul.
