Daily Painting 196 Snap Dragons at the Orange Grove

It started out as a plein air, but it started to rain and I had to run. Its at Peterson's Grove in Vero Beach, its 8 x 10, oil, mostly knife, some brush. I drove right by these snap dragons and didn't see them. When I walked back looking for a place to paint, there they were. I got everything finished before it rained except for the background orange trees. I didn't like my rainy looking sky so I brightened that up too. $300.

Nice variety of trees in this -- also the snapdragons. Isn't it funny how we sometimes don't see what is right there all along? And lucky when it suddenly comes into view!
Paint on,

Thanks Jenna, yes I was so surprised to see them. Of course, I was driving but still.
