This is a painting I created at Chandor Gardens in Weatherford. I met a group of artist that share the same passion with gardens. This is a charming garden in the heart of Weatherford. It was a cool place to spend a hot summer morning.  It's worth a trip to check it out.

El Camino del Flamboyan, by Melissa A. Torres, 16x20 acrylic on canvas



El Flamboyan, or Flamboyant Tree, is noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. In many tropical parts of the world it is grown as an ornamental tree and in English it is given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant. It is also one of several trees known as Flame tree

I love trees, but this one by far is my favorite.  They are all over the island in Puerto Rico, which is where this painting was inspired. 

                                                  This painting is available at my Etsy shop.

Pastel Workshop With Rae Andrews September 13th

Hi everyone, I will be teaching a one day PASTEL workshop at the Georgetown Art Center on September 13th 9.30 am - 3.30pm

See link for details
http://www.georgetownartcentertx.org/calendar/2230/
I hope you can join me..
Cheers!
Rae

This workshop is designed not only to show the pastel student how they can use this medium in differing ways, but also will concentrate on design and composition. Rae will demonstrate techniques and varied approaches for manipulating pastels. Individual expression is key to Rae and she will strive to bring out each student’s personal sense of design and color.
Rae uses velour paper generally for portraits and also good sanded paper. She will demonstrate both at this workshop. Students can choose which substrate they prefer as each will give a different result.
There will be ongoing critiques throughout this workshop, and students can expect short technical demos on the use of pastels throughout the afternoon.


"Opening" 6x9, Oil on Gessobord by Dawn Waters Baker

"Opening" 6x9, Oil on Gessobord

 I have been wanting to do some Texas skies. I loved the way this one had a little opening of light that illuminated everything with a warm glow. I also like the way the clouds express a tension between the cool and warm colors. I look up and see this tension yet it is harmonious. The light ties it all together.

Reminds me of those cold days in Autumn when the storms come passing by. Not to chilly but just enough to trigger all those feeling you know all to well of what's coming in the next few months. Have your boots on?

I am continuing to work on mugshots.  I liked the white shirt that he wore and didn't want to cut it off by painting a 6x6 version.  His skin is warm and provides a good contrast for the cool in his shirt.

Raspberries and Creme White Daisy was painted to make a point. Push color to its limits. Put in something unexpected. Shake it up a little. Let your brush cut loose. Paint like no one is watching, no one is judging, and it's just you and your favorite friend in a room with tons of colorful paint, brushes, and canvases in stacks up to the ceiling. Read more....
