The Red Bridge on Jupiter Island

In the not too distant past, on a Tuesday of course, just before Christmas in fact, a friend and I decided we should go paint the red bridge on Jupiter Island. It was a beautiful day  and there were plenty of people passing by. The bridge is located at the end of a bike path and connects the island to another smaller island called Harbor Island, that the local garden club maintains. My inclination is always to paint the bridge even though there are plenty of options over on Harbor Island.  The only disappointment was that since the last time I was there, they painted the bridge a duller red than the true red it was for years. I’m hoping that they go back to the old color soon. It’s just not as brilliant as it once was. In spite of that though, my painting was sold before it dried.

Tuesday Paintings

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.

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.
