1588 It Was This Big! Fishing oil painting





 I want to paint more people, I had lots of fun painting this one.  I took the photo from the Museum Causeway park looking towards the turning basin.  I didn't even see this boat till I got home and put it on the computer, it was real far away.  The original background was the docks and some large boats.  I may do one of those it looked pretty cool too.   But I wanted to do the palm tree background with this one.

Painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite

1587 Kapok Tree at the Causeway Park Plein Air Alla Prima

The kapok trees are in full bloom at the Causeway Park here in Ft. Pierce.  I had fun painting here today, this is the smaller tree, there is a really big one too.  I think its so cool that they bloom in November. The sky was totally overcast when I got there, then it cleared with almost no clouds.  Its been clearing and clouding all day. 

Went to see the aquariums at the Smithsonian there, they are very interesting as always with lots of nice fish and other creatures.
