A Little Painting of my Early RV Life

I was driving between MS and Texas, only a few hours away from my destination, when I got caught in a huge storm on the interstate, I knew I needed to pull off the road. Visibility was poor. I followed 2 tractor-trailers to an off ramp, knowing that they likely knew of a sfe place to park, I was not disappointed as they pulled into a large empty gravel lot and stopped. I followed them in and parked my motorhome as well, leaving plenty of space between us. As I sat there watching the rain pour down , running down the paved roads and spilling into the dirt lot, and the wind-blown trees leaning I knew I had made the right choice. I decided to get out my paint and do a quick study of the storm. I think I had interpreted very well what was happening for the next few hours.

Making a New Effort...

To try to catch up on my painting blog. These posts may not be in the order that I painted them, but it's more important to me to get them on here.

This painting is one I did while boondocking (camping without hookups) near Balmorhea, TX, in a cow pasture. What intrigued me more than the cows, was the eggret that wandered in every day toward the end of the lake where I had parked my RV. I loved the shadows on the water. It was calm and peaceful here and I stayed 4 days.
