1601 Breezy Morning Indian River Painting

Nice breezy morning on the Inlet.  This one I did earlier in the year, put it aside and didn't post it for some reason.  Or at least I don't think I posted it, LOL!  The birds were done at the time of the painting, I didn't feel the need to tweak it at all.
The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite,

1600 SOLD View of the Savannas Bridge Plein Air

SOLD I have been going through my paintings, they had gotten out of control, some I have put aside to tweak, others I had never put on the blog. Then there are a bunch that have been to shows and never got re-filed. This one  is a plein air, I painted it earlier this year.  I had put it aside because I wanted to brighten up the bridge a bit and add the bird.  So it is still considered painted en plein air, as most is from life.  I won't call it alla prima any more as it wasn't painted all at one time.

I painted it at the Savanna Recreational area, off Midway road.  Its a lovely area, usually lots of birds and tortoises, sometimes you get to see an alligator.

 This one is 5 x 7 inches , oil on masonite, lots of textures

1599 SOLD Commissioned Painting

 SOLD  This is a big one, I have been working on it since the beginning of March.  Its 3 x 5 feet, oil on canvas.  The client liked my palm on the frontispiece of my blog and wanted a painting with the palm on the St. Lucie river instead of the ocean.  I worked from my photos and his to compose the painting.
