Corner of Atlantic Blvd and Beaufort Ave-8x8

headed to Vision Gallery

email me if you're interested in it or call Lee at the gallery

A scene from a neighborhood with the oldest cottages in atlantic beach. this beautiful yellow beach house lit up in the late afternoon fall sun demanded to be painted. and how can you not love those white awnings over the windows. theyre the perfect accents.

Radio Island Tracks-8x10

headed to Vision Gallery in Atlantic Beach

email me if youre interested or give Lee a call

Did this one on Radio Island today. it was super windy today but the light was fantastic. couldnt use my umbrella to shield the canvas and palette so i could mix the proper values, so i positioned myself where a stop sign shielded them. worked great... just had to keep moving the easel as the sun moved the shade. if you paint plein air alot you learn to be ingenuitive.

i love the way the tracks lead right into the focal point. cant beat a built-in compositional "cheat". i need all the help i can get!
