Boggy Creek Farms. 5x7. 2011.09.07

Here is the painting from today’s paint out at Boggy Creek Farms with Plein Air Austin.

“What’s a paint out?” Every one always asks.  Well it’s when a a group of local artists gather to paint a selected location. Plein Air painting requires the artist to paint quickly to capture the light and shadows before they change as the sun shifts through the day.  It just adds to the fun of adventuring to find the next painting. 🙂

There was so much more I wanted to paint there. But I smartly opted for a shady spot to weather the Texas heat.  This is a view of the back porch in the early morning.

Boggy Creek Farms was a pleasant surprise to find it tucked neatly away in down town Austin. Its quite the busy morning haunt for local families coming to visit and watch the chickens and collect fresh veggies, eggs and goodies found on the farm.

Definitely going to go back with Xander for fun weekend adventure.  I’ll try to remember to take pictures on site of my easel and the other painters next time.
