What started with a surprise print sale at Buda Mercantile recently turned into a safe-distancing, masked opportunity to both paint on the spot and sell a couple more prints this past Saturday!
Our youngest girl, Tania, herself author of the illustrated children’s book, Skydancer, provided point with her close friend, Bebe, for the remodeling of this grand 1898 structure in the heart of Buda, a small town just south of Austin. Bebe, in turn, is a prime organizer of the Christmas Bazaar Sheila and I enjoyed showing in so much last Christmas at Donn’s Depot (pics and video here).
Links should be active in above tweet for info on getting Tania’s beautifully illustrated book. Plus the live link to my blog post is – https://felipeadanlerma.com/2019/07/22/fun-reading-of-skydancer-by-tania-marie-degregorio-at-lady-bird-johnson-wildflower-center-austin-😊/
Hopefully these two enterprising ladies, plus shops like Buda Mercantile and The Old Bakery & Emporium, the latter both historical structures here in the Austin area hosting local artisans of all modes of art, will be back up and running full speed later next year 💕
Above is a screen shot w/lots of info how to contact Buda Mercantile.
Their Facebook link, https://m.facebook.com/budamercantile/ also has a link, seen bottom of pic above ( “Send Message” ) which I’m told is also a good way to reach the folks there.
So, what did “I” sell recently at Buda Mercantile. Well, one large print of my popular digital rendition of Lady Bird Lake via Lookout Point, a small print of my very popular pink Austin sunset, and one of mine and my wife’s original gift writings, If Mom’s Were. And, almost sold two of my 2000s Hill Country impressionist paintings – https://felipeadanlerma.com/2019/12/11/my-yesterday-in-pictures-for-dec-10-2019-😊/
Above painting is a scene off Hwy 71 heading to Columbus from Austin, and the scene below is on the road to Lost Maples in the Texas Hill Country ♥️
Both works are 18×24 inches framed.
And both art works are available at “very” special holiday pricing at the Buda Mercantile!
Just ask for Natalie, or one of the other helpful folk there 😊
So hopefully I’ll have good things to report after next weekend also, and meanwhile wish everyone happy safe holidays! 💕

- September 20, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” Still Not Done, But, Already a Learning Tool For Me!“Learning Tool for Me” is part of my blog title today simply ’cause I’ve looking at this post as specifically geared to get me where I wanna go – keeping in mind my destination is a generalized abstraction of image / feeling / and intuitive aspiration (hopefully including figurative work) & it’s reached a point of development over my previous renditions that I now need to put my resolve into concrete, hopefully creative, useful thoughts for my future directions. Lot of contradictions. Like life. Like me 😊 Here goes (for now) —
- September 19, 2021 – Dappled Light, “Figures in a Landscape Study” ContinuedJust a quick post updating yesterday’s release showing what I’ve changed/added on to a watercolor on paper I’d 1st posted about on Sept 7th…A bigger factor in today’s image update is the addition of more “white”.
- September 18, 2021 – Dapple Light, My Creative Conundrum and CaldronMy regular readers know I’ve been more and more attracted to the idea of being able to paint dappled light, consciously, and hopefully, eventually more spontaneously. I titled my post to include both “conundrum” – which I kept misspelling til I looked it up 😊 – and “caldron” – which I keep feeling my creative heart and mind are swimming in (over their heads) lol!

They’re short, tight with information. What will take a little time, if you notice the time 😊 is….
- September 15, 2021 – Birds at Pfluger Bridge Austin @FineArtAmericaBirds at Pfluger Bridge Austin is an 11×14 oil painting I finished a little over 3 years ago, but never wrote up about individually on my blog. I realized this was the case when I tried to find my WordPress image from an older blog post to include in my most recent post; about birds of course 😊 Why I hadn’t done a post, announcing when I’d uploaded it to Fine Art America is simply that I….
- September 14, 2021 – Playing with 4K Video to Grab Still ShotsNow that we’ve had our bird feeder up a few months at our new location, we’ve come across a wider variety of birds (and other critters) and’ve been working at grabbing shots of birds in motion I might could use for sketches and such 🦅
Thanks again, everyone! 😊
