Magenta and Green Rest- 9x12-SOLD

Day two in da keys. its hard to pick what you want to paint. there's so many cool scenes. today i stood on a corner and saw four great paintings. that corner was only a block from where we're staying and i havent even begun to cover key west. did four today. this is a cool grave yard. i got so excited about the stark contrast between the white sepulchers and tomb stones against the tropical greens of the palms. how about that....even a grave yard is cool to paint here. havent even gotten down to the waterfront yet. maybe tomorrow.

At Pea Island Gallery

Mike - I was in the Keys about a month ago - the colors are so intense - You're going to love Key West - you may never return to the Carolina Coast!

william- thanks dude. i love your stuff and the compliment means a lot.preeesh. told my painting partner (she watches you blog too) that the painter of blight would be one of the few that could appreciate painting in a graveyard as a beautiful place.thats funny you commented on it shortly after i told her that...
anonymous- i dont want to leave. youre right! the light, the culture, the boats, the tropics! dont want to take my baggies and flip flops off to go back to 50 and 60 degree weather at home. thatll suck... its been 80 here everyday. cbeck out the conch house restaurant scene i did today on the blog.
