Today, I ventured out to Boggy Creek Farms. A local farm located in the east heart of down town Austin just off 7th street. The farm grows a large selection of veggies and greens as well as fresh eggs! Of course we can always find a variety of scenic spots to paint as well like neat garden patches, chicken coops, and parked tractors.
By paint out norms it was a very brief painting. More of a impressionable sketch of the garden statues.
This morning I offered to take my son along for painting too. We could share painting and time together. But the morning brought a few more challenges to consider. It was indeed a Boggy fall morning with muggy heat and swarms of mosquitoes lying in wait. *yes, that was with mosquito spray. I think they were immune or very hungry.
So out of self preservation, it was a very short paint out , but I am pleased with the expressive paint strokes.
A nice gesture to inspire another larger painting soon. Once I stop itching…
