Daily Painting 95 Revisited The Old Holly in the Rain

Daily Painting 145 SOLDFrom Little Jim Bridge Bait and Tackle Fort Pierce Plein Air

SOLD5 x 7, oil, plein air, alla prima. All knife. I had fun today, talked with the fishermen and took some photos for later paintings. They were catching lots of pufferfish and not much else. We had a great turnout for the paintout, I was thinking no one would come because the weatherman said 75% chance of rain. We did get some this evening. One of the ladies in our group got locked out of her car, I called 911 for her and the police no longer help you if you are locked out. Or at least here in Fort Pierce. Luckily there was a very nice repo man at the bait and tackle shop and he got the car unlocked for her.

Daily Painting 141 Edenlawn Plantation Plein Air

8 x 10 , oil, all knife, from life or plein air, alla prima.

Edenlawn Plantation has been there for years, its a very nice place to paint, all these old broken down cottages. It was a nice vacation spot years ago, nicely landscaped. Now the jungle has taken over, sidewalks are cracked and raised from the tree roots and the little cottages have vines growing all over many of them.

The new owner is going to bring it back to life and fix it all up again and is very kindly letting us paint there.
