The hill country around Texas west of Austin is beautiful in the springtime. There is such an abundance of color amid the huge canopy of green that covers the whole state. Unfortunately it does not last very long. I painted this during a Dallas Cowboys game that was on my studio television while I painted. It was like have the radio on while used to do my homework in college. i don't know why but it seems to help me concentrate. I guess I never really liked the Cowboys.. Go Oilers, Luv Ya Blue!
