I remember long spring days and warm summer nights riding my bicycle around Austin. It was always a joy to reach the river and feel the cool air on the banks. Maybe dip my toes in for a bit.
A lovely watercolor, the prints are available at Port Aransas Art Center beginning August 1st! Memories of surf and sand.
Memorial Day this year Arnica found herself out at Port Aransas when a young man decided to raise a giant Texas flag. What a sight! Everyone had a great time on the beach. Prints for this painting will be available in the Port Aransas Art Center beginning August 1st!
It’s been too long since a beach visit happened. Time to take some time. Prints of beach scenes painted by Arnica Grace will be available at the Port Aransas Art Center beginning in August! Pick this print up there for a reasonable cost. Visit, have fun, go swimming!
Our spring brought the most beautiful flush of wildflowers! The bluebonnets are glorious.
This tiny painting, only 5″ x 7″ is a Plein Air work done on site at the Zilker Botanical Gardens. Don’t you just love that place?
This happy pelican let me get so close to him that I could just about count his tail feathers! I love seeing wildlife on the coast. A great memory of the ocean just waiting to be taken home. Prints available for sale at the Port Aransas Art Center beginning August 1st!

This tiny gem of a painting simply shimmers. The spring flowers draw the viewer into the picture plane. Austin’s historic landmark, the Elisabet Ney Museum, is a tiny castle under a blue sky. A beautiful piece for any home.
Arnica Grace and the Round Rock Plein Air Painters got a first look at the beautiful blooms. Full of color and light, this 11″ x 14″ oil painting was made on site.
Plein Air painting is a time-honored traditional way for artists to capture a spectacular moment in time. From Monet and Cezanne all the way down to the present, painters like Arnica have always enjoyed the challenge of capturing the light and colors of the seasons.
