SOLD-Palm Shadows-6x8

a conch house from KW. this is from small study I did just before leaving in the spring.
I found that the simpler you do the fence shadows the better they look.
had a wonderful three day private lesson with NMW
 from Va. she was really stoked on learning and caught on to everything I was showing her. you shoulda seen the difference three days made! she was a great painter to start with and a few tips helped even more. it was over before we knew it. time flies when youre having fun.
as I was standing there I thought about how blessed I am to be able to do what I love for a living. I don't make much and sure don't have much materially speaking but nobody's got me beat quality of life speaking! I always heard that if you do what you love you never work a day in your life. you can take that one to the bank

Mike, I love your paintings, they always take me back to my trip to Key West. I check your site nearly daily to see what you have done. I really enjoyed your words about your life. I envy your opportunity/ability to paint full time. Betty
