Clouds

Thunder Cloud

This summer my main interest was in painting clouds because that’s when they’re at their best here.

The St. Lucie River on a Tuesday

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.

Another Tuesday painting

Recently we, my plein air group, went to the Indiantown Marina. I had no idea how interesting it would be since this was my first visit there. The marina is mostly a boat yard, with rows and rows of dry docked boats. The boat I painted was called Topaz. I took pictures of many other boats and hope to paint them in the future.

Plein Air Tuesdays

Here is a   plein air  painting recently done on a Tuesday, of course.

St. Christopher's - 10x8 oil on panel
St. Christopher’s – 10×8 oil on panel

This church is at the center of Hobe Sound, FL and is different on every side. So, I need to go back 3 more times at least to paint the whole church. It was a clear beautiful day and I was happy with this small charming painting.

Tuesday Paintings House of Refuge Beach

Last Tuesday, not yesterday but Tuesday of last week, we painted at the House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island, a narrow strip of land called Gilbert’s Bar. It was a nice breezy day and I decided to paint the beach instead of the buildings. The limestone rocks alone are an interesting subject. Even though I had time for a second small painting I still painted the rocks and ocean instead of the buildings. So here are mama and baby paintings from last Tuesday.
