Plein Air Oil Workshop Fredericksburg, TX with Guido Frick by Texas Artist Nancy Standlee

 LBJ Sheep 15020
8x10 Oil
on Ampersand Gessobord
Available on Daily Paintworks

I took a plein air oil workshop with Guido Frick in Fredericksburg TX November 9-13 to really stretch myself as I don't paint plein air. This landscape was painted on Friday at the Sauer-Beckmann Living History Farm on the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park in Stonewall. I tried putting in two sheep but they really looked like a cross between a pig and a dog so when I got home I took one of my photos and printed it so I could more closely study how a sheep really looks and besides they just didn't want to stand still. This one was very friendly with Guido. I would recommend Guido's workshop if you are interested in impressionist oils. He will teach in the U.S. in 2016. He's also on Facebook if you'd like to follow his current treks and paintings.

Traveling with wet paintings
This really works. I'd heard about it before but this time after Guido discussed it more thoroughly I gave it a try and it's an easy way to travel in a car with wet oil paintings. Place push pins in the corners and secure with Duct tape. Different sizes can be used if they have a common edge size. Place painted sides together. 

 You are invited Friday evening 6:30-8:30 Nov. 20 for the reception for the unveiling of the stars painted for the city of Arlington.
And Third Degree Art has a painting or two to show with it.

You are a wonderful inspiration, the way you push yourself to try new things!
Still think YOUR flowers are a knockout!

Love that hint about the pushpins. Would also work when having to store pieces too close together. Thx bunches
