Window at Laguna Gloria
Laguna Gloria is a restored 1916 Italian style villa that was once the home of the Texas legend, Clara Driscoll. The building overlooks Lake Austin and is a very imposing structure. It now houses an art museum and an art school. I initially intended to paint the whole building. However, while walking around the lovely grounds, I was taken with this arched cut glass window and decided on a more intimate view of the structure. It is a fun place to paint and I plan to return there often.
