Daily Painting 1186 Waves in the Indian River

I am finally getting back to painting and blogging. I had the bug from Hell, it lasted almost two months. I would get a bit better and then have to go back on another antibiotic. Its been a week now since the last antibiotic, hopefully it is finished for good now.

The painting is 8 x 10, oil on masonite. Its almost all painted with the palette knife and has super texture. I had fun painting it, it was nice to get back to painting, it feels like forever.

Its a job and a half, I have too many plants! The painting is oil, 5 x 7 inches, framed,

Daily Painting 1168 Pads 'n Palms Plein Air Alla Prima

There is a little story about the palm trees, the two behind the egret. Used to be three, there is the horizontal stump right in back of the bird. I painted that tree, oh maybe seven years ago with the other two, then it was taken out by hurricane Jeanne or Frances. The reason they grew like that is because they had gotten knocked flat by a hurricane years ago, then grew back towards the sun. Its oil on masonite, $200.

Daily Painting 1157 Water Lily Day Plein Air Alla Prima



I went out painting with fellow Daily Painter Fawn McNeil Barr today.
It was wonderful! Hundreds of water lilies, all shades of pink,
white and bright fuchsia,
they were growing all over.

...I did one painting, was going to do more but this big egret came walking by,
right in front of me,
he was catching blue dragonflies!

Then some ibis came along too,
I just sat and watched and took photos.
I figured I could paint from them.
I am thinking if I paint these things,
nobody will believe me,
big white birds and big pink waterlilies!
Not too hot or cold,
lovely breeze, just perfect.

The painting is oil 8 x 10 inches on gessoed plywood, I did it on site from life.
