I did this one awhile ago, had to tweak it a bit.  Its 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.  It started out very stormy, it rained the whole way from Ft. Pierce to the House of Refuge.  It was starting to clear here but there were still storm clouds in the sky.

1530 Live Oak on the Indian River Plein Air, Alla Prima

I had a great time painting today at the old Fort Park with the Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast.  I had a nice turnout and the weather was perfect.  This old oak is on the river side of the road, I took some liberties with it, there is a total jungle  to the right of the tree in real life.

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

1527 Hibiscus Jubilee

I got this hibiscus from my neighbor, I had fallen in love with her plant.  This is as far as they open, I love how they look. Malvaviscus arboreus is the scientific name they are also called sleeping hibiscus or turkscaps. We have some other kinds of sleeping hibiscus in our yard that are longer.  The photo of my painting has some glare on the lower right, for some reason I had some trouble taking the picture.  The painting is 8 x 10, oil on masonite.
