Great time at Canaveral Seashore Paint Out :)

This was a really fun event! 26 plain air painters all making art and raising money for programs for the Canaveral National Seashore.

A great cause and a beautiful national treasure!

And we enjoyed perfect October weather 🙂

Many thanks to all the volunteers and artists and our fantastic leaders, Nancy, John, Dick as well as Cathy for finding great places for us to stay.

And a special thanks to my sweet hosts Mary Sue and Bill and of course their sweet dog Dootie!

Mmmmmmmm, sometimes if you are not drawing it, or painting it, you just have to soak in it.
I heard great painter Clyde Aspevig
Say you should really get to know your subject. Sometimes observing it can be just as important as painting it
Sounds good to me!!
Have a great weekend!

Sky notes from the dock

La la la
In an obvious attempt to procrastinate going to the studio to work on my show deadline, I told myself I would just do a few quick sketches off the dock.

Here is a handful of observations:

Lucky Turtle count 2
Great blue heron low fly by 1
There are a ridiculous amount of wind patterns happening (quite lovely) I lost count at 788,992,492..
I need an eraser
The sound of a squirrel tickle fight in the Cypress tree is amusing
Drawing clouds is not as easy as you might think….

Ps. I noticed myself singing “I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now, la la la, and still somehow, la la la, I really don’t know clouds…at alllllllllll…
