A beautiful day to Paint!

We had a really great day today...started out very cool but warmed up nicely with little wind and blue sky!
We went paint at a large home on the Island which overlooks the big water of Marco Island.

I received the highest complement - It made the Mom (owner) cry!

March 10, 2010 - Resident's Beach Plein Air

We had a small group gather at the Residence Beach to paint....finally, a beautiful day. I started before too may people showed up. After a quick block in, I used mostly palette knife to play with color and lots of juicy paint.

Another cool, windy day. This little piece was 'adjusted' when I got home...too many scarves and umbrellas making it way too complicated!
