Out Back, Pastel Painting

This pastel landscape is the lake on the north end out back of our home.  It is typical of areas here in the Lost Pines near Lake Bastrop or other small lakes.  We have many birds and other animals here.  We have a white egret that seems to hang around our yard year round.

My artwork is part of the excitement this month at Art Connections, a unique gallery filled with art and artists:
