It was cloudy and threatening rain, so I decided I wanted a colorful scene to paint. I chose to paint the building that houses the boats. It is the Bastrop River Company http://www.bastropriverco.com/. They are equipped for any kind of river travel as you see. If you want a fun day or more on the river contact them.
I painted for about an hour and a half. It did sprinkle at one point but I was under a good tree. There were four artists and we each painted something different.
I painted for about an hour and a half. I was working on Colourfix sanded paper with an assortment of brands of pastels. I got a fairly decent start and finished in about the same amount of time at home.

Carolyn made me smile. She said, "I love the sign, I think if I get closer I could read it!" As you see, can't be done. I like it better in person that in these photos. Hmmmm. As it should be I suppose. Smile.
Gene has been busy working on the garage. The two car garage was separated by an insulated wall. The one side had been used for a workshop and has an air conditioner and the windows. The wall takes up space and makes it very hard to get in and out of the bigger car. It will be much more useful now. Gene has his workshop in a shed out back.
