Boggy Creek Farms

October 12, 2013

Today, I ventured out to Boggy Creek Farms.   A local farm located in the east heart of down town Austin just off 7th street.  The farm grows a large selection of veggies and greens as well as fresh eggs!  Of course we can always find a variety of scenic spots to paint as well like neat garden patches, chicken coops, and parked tractors.

By paint out norms it was a very brief painting.  More of a impressionable sketch of  the garden statues.

This morning I offered to take my son along for painting too.  We could share painting and time together.  But the morning brought a few more challenges to consider.  It was indeed a Boggy fall morning with muggy heat and swarms of mosquitoes lying in wait.  *yes, that was with mosquito spray.  I think they were immune or very hungry.

So out of self preservation, it was a very short paint out , but I am pleased with the expressive paint strokes.
A nice gesture to inspire another larger painting soon.  Once I stop itching…
