1794 Morning at JayCee Park, Plein Air

I painted this at JayCee park Thursday, it was nice out, started out a bit chilly but it got perfect real fast. Its 8 x 10 inches oil on Masonite. I tweaked it a little bit at home, I had some hanging palm fronds in the palm tree that just looked weird and I added the sea gulls. They were there and were hoping for hand outs. The little blue heron was there as well, he was pretty tame.

1791 Beautiful Day in the Savannas Oil Painting

Finally posting something recent for a change! This is from Thursday's paintout in the Savannas Recreational Area here in Ft. Pierce off Midway Road. 

It was a disaster of an October, my husband ended up in the hospital with congestive heart failure, he is home now and seems to be doing well. I got a bug and had to go to the doctors, the stress sent my blood pressure up and the medications did not agree with me. First caused heart palpitations and next made me so dizzy I fell down a couple of times. All is well now with me, blood pressure is down to a low normal on no meds.

Then our toilet stops flushing! Septic tank filter was clogged. Great timing!
So I finally go painting, this is mostly from life but I had to tweak it some at home, I was a bit rusty!  Its 8 x 10 inches, oil on Masonite, lots of textures, its almost all painting knife.

1789 Blue Heron Flyby Plein Air Original Oil Painting

Finally did some painting today with my group, the Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast! We had a lot of fun catching up, the weather is finally cool enough to paint in. It was getting pretty warm by noon and the light and shadows changed a lot.
This is how it looked in the morning, by noon it was cloudy and we had a few nice sprinkles of rain. Nice breeze from the east and I saw the blue heron flying past just where he is in the painting. So I am naming it "Blue Heron Flyby"
This is at the Savannas Recreational area off Midway road in Ft. Pierce. Its 8 x 10 inches, oil on Masonite.

1788 In Full Bloom Mixed Media oil and water color painting








First painting after my cataract surgery, I was having fun with colors! I tried a new to me technique. I took a piece of watercolor paper, coated it with clear acrylic. This was to protect the paper from the oil paints. Then painted an under painting with watercolors. Then went over that with oils. It was about 5 sessions with letting it dry in between times and tweaks. Its a fun technique, something a little different.  Its loosely based on a photo I took while I was at a Heathcote Botanical Gardens plant sale.



Its 9 x 11 inches, watercolor and oil on watercolor paper.

1774 Wafting White Water Lily

 This started out badly, I was trying a different technique, negative painting with water soluble oil paints. So it was sort of new to me, I have done negative painting before but not trying to do a whole painting just parts of them. Negative painting is working from front to back, it messes with your mind in a fun but sometimes frustrating way. So foreground things are painted first and the background is painted around them. Then in the end up it turned into more of one of my normal paintings. There is the final painting and a wip below. Right before the end the painting was taken to the sink and washed off, something I hadn't done with water soluble oils. I wasn't sure if the whole thing would come off or not. It stayed and I decided I didn't like the plants on the right so rubbed them out. Click them to see bigger. Painting is 9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas mounted on masonite.
