Here is an old pencil drawing of mine, my old style from about 25 years ago. I got tired today, couldn't manage a painting so here is this instead. Plus the computer was acting up, I had the devil of a time getting it on line. Hours! I am sure everyone knows how that goes! Its not for sale. 5.50 x 8.50 inches, graphite on paper.

SOLD Here is the plant sale finished. I was a little scared to finish, but I am happy how it turned out. Its 4 x 6, oil with acrylic undercoat. $100.

I am in the mood to play with a new technique, well its not new, but its something I haven't done. This layer of paint has to totally dry before I can finish it. The idea is to paint over this layer, letting a bit show through here and there and create an interesting vibration of colors. I want to show that it was a bright and busy day at the Spring plant sale at Heathcote. Its 5 x 7 with a thin layer of acrylic paint that I will go over with oil paint.

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 am not sure what they are, they are in bloom all over Fort Pierce and Jensen Beach. I like them and I am probably going to paint them some more. I don't think they bloom for too long. I was in Jensen Beach today at the Indian River Drive Park. Very nice lots of children running around and coming to look at my painting. Their moms point at my painting and say stuff like, "You can paint like that too but you have to practice a whole lot, it takes a lot of work and maybe some day you can paint too. " Sounds awful! hehehe, To any kids looking, painting is fun, play with it and make a mess, and someday after a lot of messes you will start making good paintings too with some messes in there too every now and then. Its 8 x 10, oil, knife and brush plein air alla prima. $200.

Here is my painting endeavor for today, plus some building! I like to make boat models now and then and age them so they don't look brand new and plastic. The smoke stack and life boat aren't aged yet. I still have a lot to do, the rigging, rails and sail plus some odd bits and pieces.
