As usual I’m behind in posting and photographing my Tuesday paintings. I’ve gone back to using the painting knife more and am more comfortable with the combination of brush and knife now.
This first painting is at Indian Riverside Park in Jensen Beach, FL – kind of a windy day.
Indian River Lagoon – oil – 9×12
On this Tuesday, it started out as a rainy day at the Port St. Lucie Botanical Garden, but it cleared up later.

Finally, after having Mokie here for over three years, I’ve painted her official portrait. It’s a 16 x 20 pastel on sanded paper that I mounted onto gesso board.

This summer my main interest was in painting clouds because that’s when they’re at their best here.
Thunder Cloud – oil – plein air
rain clouds – oil – plein air
hot-and-hazy – oil – plein air
Clouds Over Indian River Lagoon – Oil – plein air
This summer most of my paintings are cloud-centric and atmospheric. This painting is of the Stuart Beach lifeguard station.
Red Flag Again – 12 x 12 – oil on canvas
More paintings to follow. Photography required.
Two of my plein air paintings were selected to be in this invitational show, which is already hung at the Elliot.
My paintings that are in the show:
Topaz – oil on board – 9×12
Port Salerno – 9×12 – pastels
If you are in the area, hope you get a chance to swing by. 🙂
This small watercolor study is for up for auction on my Daily Paintworks Gallery page.
It was mostly about the clouds.
The Savannah – 6×6 inch watercolor on 140 lb. watercolor paper
These two plein air paintings of the St. Lucie River were done at the Veterans Memorial Park in Port St. Lucie, FL. One is smaller. I was on a huge boardwalk. Several other people painted from the giant size picnic pavillion. It was a breezy, pleasant day with jumping fish.
Partly Cloudy – 8×10 – oil on panel
Chance of Rain – 6×8 – oil on panel
My website was getting too confusing for me so I’ve started another website strictly for illustrations. This website will continue to be for fine art.
The new blog/website is here:
I’ll probably still be cross pollinating them for a while – transitions are confusing.
