1575 High Winds Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this awhile ago, in April.  It was during the Souvenirs of Downtown paintout.  From life, it was starting to rain which felt pretty nice as I was getting warm.

I am just getting around to posting it, the planning board has been having meetings about this spot, its a park next to the Episcopal church by the river.  The church is talking about doing something else with it, not sure what, its pretty confusing to me.  I don't really understand politics that well.  As far as I can tell it probably won't stay the same.  Whether it will be nicer or worse I don't know.  I do like it the way it is.  I don't know if I will want to paint it again if they turn it into a tall building or baseball diamond or put fences up.

There was some talk about a dock out into the river which would be nice. I hope the palms and banyan tree can be left alone.

The painting is 8 x10 inches oil on masonite.  It is in a plain oak frame which is optional, I will sell it without the frame too.  The shadow from the frame can be seen on the right.

1561 Blue Cypress Lake Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this one back in March, finally getting around to posting it!  Its a fairly long drive from here to Blue Cypress Lake and it was already getting hot out.  It was hard to find a good view that kept me in the shade.  I think it would be a better place to go in the winter.  I would really like to take a boat ride on the lake, would probably be able to see a lot of interesting spots then.

Those are cypress trees, they grow right in the water like that.  The moss hanging from the branches is Spanish moss.
