This cabin is located at Wenmohs Ranch. Some time in the mid 1800s, a teacher lived in half of this small building, while the other half was used as a smokehouse. I painted it during a Saturday morning outing with a small group from Plein Air Austin. The perspective on the upper window is pretty wonky, and I suppose I should fix it, but if anyone complains, I'll just say "it's folk art."

This next one was painted on a cold, gray day in Georgetown, Texas, along the South San Gabriel River. I had to ignore the construction noise being generated at the apartment building going up just across the river to my right.

This final one was painted with a group from Plein Air Austin, on a great piece of property in Bee Cave, TX. I had to get past a guard house, then drove past multimillion dollar homes & 2 electric gates, but once I got onto the ranch it was amazing. The first thing I saw was a group of wild turkeys walking around.
