Sea Spray

Sea Spray SOLD
9"x12" oil on board

I headed back down to Caspersen Beach in Venice, FL last Wednesday morning to try my hand at those wonderful warm-toned rocks along the cool blue/green sea again. Moving water is definitely a formidable challenge, involving almost as much "poised brush" observation as as it does "brush to canvas" action!

Myakka River Morning SOLD
16"x20" oil on canvas

A bit larger than my usual plein air paintings, this is a recent studio commission of the Myakka River State Park done from a combination of several small studies painted on sight and photos I took.
