#6- Overhanging Palm-6x8
SOLD to KB
I have found the perfect plein air vehicle, this trusty bike. i can park free anywhere in key west (saves me $10 a day) and peddle to all kinds of places to paint that you cant reach by car. i went on Stock Island today and was able to peddle up to all kinds of out-of-the-way places. ive got at least two weeks worth of spots picked out on Stock Island alone! i'm thinking of adding a bike permanently to my plein air gear arsenal. it would be great around wrightsville beach during the summer and in Provincetown (cape cod) when i head up there in the fall. the streets are narrow up there like they are here in key west and parking is expensive. the long walk finding paintings can wear you out before you even pick up the brush.
this photo is in the Key West cemetary, a beautiful place to paint in the late afternoon when all the sepulchers and grave stones are lit up with yellowy/orange light on one side, and purple/blue color on the shadow side.
theres a full moon tomorrow night and if its not real cloudy i'm going to attempt a nocturnal painting in the marina on Stock Island. the last time i tried a nocturnal was a trip to key west i took two years ago. some street thug kids started throwing rocks at me while i was painting. i tell everybody i got "stoned" that night. literally! LOL
Hopefully tomorrow night will be uneventful but you never know.
