The Plein Air Austin group met at Michaelis Ranch in Kyle, Texas yesterday. Several of us were enamored with the idea of painting the cattle, who were gathered under the distant trees, and headed into the pasture with our gear. As soon as we got there, they all came over to greet us - I guess they thought we had food! This is the closest this city girl has ever been to cattle! One of them knocked over an easel, luckily, that happened before the artist had her paints out. We were so busy taking pictures and laughing that it took a long time to settle into painting mode. What a great day!
Expect to see some cow paintings in the near future!
