Day Four, Afternoon, ECAA Paintout, 6-4-2010

June 11, 2010














Day Four, Afternoon. The temperature has reached 100 degrees. I wanted to paint a historic home for my last panting in this ECAA paint out. I found a house on Marvin Street which is owned by a retired Brit from Manchester England. He was a nice guy. He greeted me with cold water and house stories. He was most concerned he had the British flag higher than the US flag. I found a spot in the shade of the oaks. I t was a tiring but exciting week. I sold one painting and received  a honorable mention. There were 65 painters and over 250 paintings produced.

Day Two of the ECAA paint out and  I returned to Waxahachie alone at day break to find a peaceful town on Memorial day. After a short walk around the square I decided on the rear of the Rogers Hotel. I loved the composition. The sun was rising over my shoulder creating  fire exit stair shadows on the building. I strived to show the courthouse beyond – washed out with purple-gray. I finished the painting after about 3 hours. The sun was higher in the sky and the temperature is rising fast, 99 degrees expected today. I headed back to Dallas and arrived home by noon.

ECAA Paint Historic Waxahachie TX, May 29, 2010

 Day One of the Ellis County Arts Association Plein Air Paint Historic Waxahachie TX started with a 1 ½ hour quick draw session at 10:00am. The subject was the Town Square plus one block in each direction. After the quick draw the paintings produced were auctioned on the courthouse grounds. I feel fortunate my painting of the Farmers Market sold. Little did I know this was the beginning of one of the most exciting plein air painting events ever with over 60 really good painters and 7 straight days of painting.
