1585 Perfect Day at Jetty Park Plein Air Alla Prima

I had a great time painting with my friends today, it was beautiful out at the Jetty park.  The fisherman was there, he left shortly after I started painting.  I hope I didn't make him nervous!

 He was the last thing to be painted so I had to do him from memory.  I am thinking he wasn't catching much anyhow there was a zillion little fish swimming next to the rocks, huge schools of them.  So whatever he had for bait probably wasn't as nice eating as them.  Every now and then some big fish would chase the little ones and there would be big splashes and commotion.  They were all gone by 12:30, about when I left too.

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

1578 Under the Oaks at the Savannas, Plein Air Alla Prima

I painted this today out at the Savanna's Recreational area by Midway road.  Nice day to be in the shade, its cooling down a little but its still pretty warm.

Very pretty out, I saw a lot of places there I would like to paint but no shade to get under.  There are some nice ponds with wild white water lilies and the Florida holly is everywhere.  Pretty pink, white and yellow wild flowers in the grass.  They haven't mowed around there lately and the flowers love it.  

 The painting is oil on masonite, 12 x 16 inches.

1577 SOLD Poinciana Grove

SOLD  I did this one awhile back but I don't think I posted it.  Going to try and get back in the habit of posting my paintings!  I have been painting a fair bit but just haven't been putting them online.  Then I had a month long flu type thing, that is finally better!  But it kicked my motivation out the window.

1575 High Winds Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this awhile ago, in April.  It was during the Souvenirs of Downtown paintout.  From life, it was starting to rain which felt pretty nice as I was getting warm.

I am just getting around to posting it, the planning board has been having meetings about this spot, its a park next to the Episcopal church by the river.  The church is talking about doing something else with it, not sure what, its pretty confusing to me.  I don't really understand politics that well.  As far as I can tell it probably won't stay the same.  Whether it will be nicer or worse I don't know.  I do like it the way it is.  I don't know if I will want to paint it again if they turn it into a tall building or baseball diamond or put fences up.

There was some talk about a dock out into the river which would be nice. I hope the palms and banyan tree can be left alone.

The painting is 8 x10 inches oil on masonite.  It is in a plain oak frame which is optional, I will sell it without the frame too.  The shadow from the frame can be seen on the right.

1561 Blue Cypress Lake Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this one back in March, finally getting around to posting it!  Its a fairly long drive from here to Blue Cypress Lake and it was already getting hot out.  It was hard to find a good view that kept me in the shade.  I think it would be a better place to go in the winter.  I would really like to take a boat ride on the lake, would probably be able to see a lot of interesting spots then.

Those are cypress trees, they grow right in the water like that.  The moss hanging from the branches is Spanish moss.
