Many have been effected by Hurricane Harvey and its flooding damage. We will all rise above this flood damage. For an artist it can be a bit difficult as people focus on putting their lives and homes back together and they are not always interested in spending on art. But art can bring healing and happiness back in to your homes.
Texas Plein air artists especially take on the challenges of storms, humidity and heat which drive us back inside to paint. I am hoping to get to my studio soon and not by boat, to finish painting the sunflowers and landscapes.

My art studio is located down a country lane off Kluge Road which now you can can see is flooded.
Sunflower Show coming in October
No matter what the weather is like I am going to paint. I set up my space with photo reference of views that I have experienced. I set up a live still life of flowers. I went to Muller Ranch in Woodland, California to experience the farming scene of growing sunflowers. I was quite impacted looking at the flowers at the different times of the day.
