1750 Down by the River Plein air alla Prima

It was really hard prying myself out of bed today, it was cold for here, 50 degrees.  I was glad I went out, its been a beautiful day! This was at the Old Fort Park site here in Fort Pierce, looking down towards the river.  I was in a nice sunny spot and got warmed up fast.

I was close to the road and some of the drivers slowed down to look.  One stopped and yelled out that the painting was beautiful!   The painting was at the stage of palm tree trunks with no leaves so I am not sure what he was seeing.

1742 Family Reunion Plein air

I painted this one a few weeks ago out at the Inlet State Park.  I was tired and not too happy with the way it looked so I let it sit for awhile.
About a week ago I tweaked it a little and still wasn't happy. Today I picked it up and I think its finally finished!  Originally it was very even, palms were very much alike, same colors in them, foreground and background boring.  I fixed up the sea grapes under the palms and added the one in the left background.  I added the trail and made some of the palms come forward and some go into the back.  Some are thinner and some thicker.  It made me think of families, how in most families there are differences and similarities in how they look. That is how I came up with the title.

 The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite,
