I found this scene while driving between Richmond and Eagle Lake, Texas, on the southwest side of Houston. What started out as a gray overcast spring morning gave way to breaking clouds and blue sky peering though the breaks. This piece was painted loosely and spontaneously with combination of brush and palette knife.   This piece is on canvas board and will need a frame for display.

Getting to Know David

David has always wanted to be a painter. His professional career consisted of design and illustration roles, but it was not until a brush with his own mortality that David decided to change careers and become a full-time artist. “I quit my job in Houston and moved to the small and slow-paced border town of Del Rio, Texas, where I am now living my dream,” he says. Inspired by the outdoors, he often paints outside or takes photographs on his road trips to which he refers once back in his studio. The resulting paintings are marked by impressionist-style brushwork and a natural use of color. David’s pastoral scenes of the countryside are idyllic, invoking within the viewer a serene sense of calm.
