"Morning Has Broken", 6x8" Oil on Canvas
I am pretty happy with my little painting above. Clouds have been alluring and screaming.. paint me, paint-me...the entire trip. We just don't get to see enough of them in East Texas buried in heavy drapes of pine forest. I have really enjoyed watching and studying the changing play of light, shadow and movement as they roll along their way across the expanse of endless sky... a challenge to
capture on canvas.
Balmorhea Natural Springs
We arrived in Carlsbad, NM late yesterday stopping in Balmorhea, TX to swim in the natural bottom, spring fed pool. I have missed my swimming so this was a delightful break from the desert heat. The temperature of the water is 72 to 76 degrees year round and a popular site for scuba divers. I couldn't get it all in one photo so there are two photos, right and left, it's quite large.
Heading out today to check out the Caverns here in Carlsbad ....what a ride we are on...yee-haa!!!
