It Takes a Village was my quick draw piece for Plein Air Easton in 2021. I scouted out the scene the day before and knew how I was going to approach it. “Pyramid Scheme” was inspired from studies and photos from Texas Plein Air. The goats team worked created the composition. Finally, “Spring Fed” was painted in the field on a ranch during Plein Air Texas.
