Dena says to bring a picnic lunch and plan to listen to music and look at the art, sit under the trees, listen to music and buy some art. :) There will be refreshments for the reception. From Austin, go out HWY71 and turn left on Hamilton Pool Rd., go 21.2 miles until stop sign at 962 and 962 Spur, turn right. Take the first right at Old Spicewood rd. (C302) and take the second left to The Bunkhouse.
It is a beautiful location. Regina and I took our 8 pastel paintings out on Monday. I'm showing
Little Green Apples, 8 x 10 inches, Black Gallery Frame
On the Edge, Pastel, 8 x 10 inches
Lookin' for Rain on the Flats, Pastel, 18 x 24 inches
The drive is beautiful and not that far. Worth going just for the views. We went from there to Marble Falls for lunch at the famous Blue Bonnet Cafe, famous for their homemade pies. Then to the local art gallery,
Highland Arts Guild
318 Main St
Marble Falls, TX 78654-5715
and then stopped to do some plein air at Pace Bend Park. We found a camp ground with a table in the shade so we set up our pastels, easels and other items and got to work. We painted off in the same direction but you can see a difference in our styles.
