1815 Fishing at Jay Cee Park Plein Air Alla Prima













I did this at Jay Cee park Thursday, top one is the whole painting, bottom is a close-up.  I may make a larger painting of the bottom, I think it would make a nice one.  The painting is 12 x 9 inches, oil on a canvas panel.  I had a good time painting and visiting with everyone even though it was super hot.  It was only 93 degrees but 100 percent humidity.  I mainly used a painting knife so there are lots of juicy textures.  Click on the paypal button below if you are interested in purchasing the painting, it is $200.

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"

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.
