Pictures from Texas and Ireland

SOLD!!!! This is a montage of Texas images from El Capitan near El Paso to the Hill Country near the Frio River State Park to Caddo Lake at Uncertain (in East Texas).  Hence the title: Waltz Across Texas.

Waltz Across Texas, 12 x 36 Digital Print
East Texas Relic, 9 x 12 Pastel
This was an old abandoned ranch on US 71, somewhere between Carthage and Buffalo.

Twin Cyprus, 9 x 12 Pastel
Unfortunately, Caddo Lake is this green.  It's an invasive plant nearly blanketing the whole lake.  This is a 2 hour study I tried to see if I could loosen up my painting.

Irish Pasture #1, 9 x 12 Pastel
Irish pastures are not fenced in.  The sheep roam freely.  Look closely and you can see the blue paint on their rumps.  That's how they are "branded".

Irish Pasture #2, 9 x 12 Pastel
Find the sheep?
