Also an oily-landscapist, here (but I'm not from TX or OK). May post something.
I've been interested for some time in "The Luminists", in America, because I see something in their work which approximates one's vision in what I have called "sesshin-vision", but which can also be everyday-vision if one sits sufficient hours per day. Again, Maxfield Parrish has a few paintings that verge upon this vision, whether by accident or not, I don't know, as I don't know the artist's biography (a meditator? Dunno).
Also, long-time photographer here.

The first image in this topic is from life. The second sketch is most definitely NOT from life.
I like oil paint and am also fond of landscape painting (Plein air style on small canvas (white gesso)). You should post some of your paintings.
All the images I've posted in this topic were done in photoshop, FYI.
