“Shady Path”

Another little plein air painting done recently in Florida.

This is the spot where a path shaded by sea grapes opens up into the bright sunlight, sand, and views of the sea.

“Water Wings” Revisited

water wings new

30”x48”      Acrylic      Gallery Wrapped Canvas    

This is an updated painting of my toy float plane soaring over a make-believe lake. The previous blue plane just didn’t stand out enough against the sky and trees. This revision depicts the actual markings on the little plane more authentically. I also added the wind-up mechanism on top. Can’t believe I left that out the first time. The painting is on display as part of the FMVA Big Show at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead until early June.
