I completed a diptych of the place called "Blue Hole" on the San Gabriel River in Georgetown, Texas. It is named "San Gabriel Morning", an oil 8x16. This painting is part of the "captured" series - objects temporarily captured in roots, rocks, etc. as the river moves along.
We finally had rains in Georgetown and green is the order of the day. A wealth of birds with their varied songs proliferate this place. Beautiful!
The sweetest gift for me is the Scissor tailed Flycatcher, the Oklahoma state bird. They were scarce last summer during the drought which was a disappointment.
Years ago in a particularly difficult time a Scissor-tail sang all night long - very unusual - so I took it to be a special promise for me of better things to come in a new place, in a new season. This bird is part of the special nature of being back in Texas.
I have opened my studio-gallery to the public three days a week, from Thursday through Saturday, from 10am to 6pm. Check out my website, www.sherryjo.com, for the address and please come by when you are in the area.
