Red Coconut RV Park

This was our  paint-out location last Wednesday.  I loved the way the shadow of the palm tree hit the trailer.

Golden Beach

This Paint the Beach Painting was painted at Bowditch Park.  I was in the shade the whole morning so it was fun.  I put a path in the composition in memory of Maya Bryant.  She was magic.  She would take an ordinary paint-out destination and turn it into masterpiece.  We all miss Maya. 
The painting was painted in yellows and oranges.  It makes a happy painting.

Beach Shrimp Boat

Last Tuesday & Wednesday, I was out by 7 AM painting for "Paint the Beach"  This was the first painting.  There are lots of Shrimp boats to paint.  It is a popular subject.  I started drawing the painting in the fog.  It was nice and cool.  Then the sun came out and the temperature rose to the 80s.  I tried to put an umbrella up but it was too windy.  I finished the painting in the sun with breaks sitting in the shade of a big truck.
I framed the paintings on Thursday and forgot to take a photo.  So you can see reflections on the glass.  It was all worth it.  I sold both paintings Friday night at the big Paint the Beach gala.

Gulf Breeze Cottages

I have been painting.  But there are too many other obligations in my like.  Today I painted out with the Sanibel Art Group on Sainibel Island at Gulf Breeze Cottages.  Cute cottages right next to the gulf.  I am happy with my painting.  I conquered all those greens.
