Impressions III, White Rock Lake

Impressions II, White Rock Lake – 5″ x 7″ pastel

Today I revisited the same location at White Rock Lake as last week, but I wanted to paint it completely different this time. I love vibrant color and playing with contrasts in my subject, so today I really had fun. Hope you do, too!

To beat our 100º heat, I headed out to White Rock Lake in the morning and captured the Dallas skyline at early light. I love this view of the city.

I’d like to invite you to visit my booth at the Uptown Art Fair in Minneapolis. This is my first time showing in Minnesota, and I’m really excited since this is an extremely competitive show to get into. I’ll be exhibiting several new pieces for the first time, so I hope you can stop by and check them out. See you this weekend!
