Many people in the Lakeway community know Johnnie Fields – the guy with the genuine smile and the easy laugh, who has taught so many in Lakeway and elsewhere how to paint with watercolor, how to trust their instincts with the brush and to “be loose and unafraid,” as he puts it. Fields, born in Waco, has spent a good portion of his life in Texas. He attended the University of Texas, studying architecture and later opening an architecture firm. He’s helped draw up designs for several area churches and schools – most recently, Lake Travis Middle School. While some might consider 90+ a good age to have been retired…
Regardless of what happens to the Lakeway Arts District proposal, we could still have an Arts District community here in Lakeway…online! If you are an artist and would be interested in having a free webpage showcasing your art on our Arts District website, please use the contact form and let us know. These pages will only be free for a limited time, so act soon and reserve yours. In the future, we will be adding a robust Arts Calendar to the site as well.
