Runnymede Country Inn

I completed the Runnymede Country Inn commission. Anne, co-owner of this elegant English-style country inn in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, says they will be hanging it on the wall above the guest book table. Very nice placement! And she has also ordered little fold-over note cards with the image of the painting on the front.

For reference, I used photos that I took last fall when my girlfriends and I spent a shopping weekend in Fredericksburg. The photos were taken in early morning on a crisp Novemeber day. You can see a slight pink glow behind this lovely home, fading up to a soft blue Hill Country sky. I really enjoyed painting this wonderful Bed & Breakfast!

Thanks, Leslie! Yes, I did enjoy this commission very much. And I definitely plan to go back to stay there. It is a wonderful B&B, the breakfast is fabulous, and it is so close to Fredericksburg. Perfect for a Hill Country trip with the girlfriends!
