Fall Creek at El Tesoro by Sheri Jones

Fall Creek at El Tesoro by Sheri Jones
7x14 oil on canvas
I painted this today at El Tesoro Camp in Granbury, Texas. I met 9 other artist there to paint. This is a camp for children and we were fortunate to get special permission to paint there. This was set up a month ago by Claudia Davis  and Maryann Brummer  when the weather was unseasonably warm. Today we had winter weather with temperatures only reaching  41 for the high.  I dressed like I was going snow skiing and did fine. We were low on the river protected from the wind. It turned into a great day for those willing to brave the cool weather.  This is available for purchase $250.00

It was cold for us Texans yesterday. You are a hardy Plein Air Artist. This is a wonderful painting of moving water.
