May will be a “featured” month for Chuck and Barbara.  Their annual Texascapes Show will be featured at Fredericksburg Art Gallery in May, with the Opening Reception on May 4, 6-8 PM.  Here’s a preview of Chuck’s 30 x 40 painting “Guadalupe Mountains” that will be part of the show.

Also in May, the Museum of Western Art in Kerrville will display the single largest exhibition of Chuck and Barbara’s paintings to date!  Reception for this show is May 17, 5:30-7 PM.  And, there’s participation in Paint the Town plein air painting competition in Marble Falls (May 2-5).  Lastly, off to the plein air painting, convention, and national show of Oil Painters of America in Colorado.  Whew!  What a May full….




My first painting video!  All the preparation for a Quick Draw that didn’t happen turned into a perfect opportunity to make a fast-paced video.  Check it out below.  The painting took about 45 minutes in real time, but this was sped up in the movie for entertainment value.  For those artists and friends who would like to know more about the process, please click here for a pdf that explains it all.
