Since everything is cancelled due to coronovirus, my Tuesday painting group is also suspended until further notice. This past Tuesday I painted the back yard. It’s casein paint, which is a water based paint that dries permanent, like oil paint. It handles a lot like oil paint but dries fast with a matte finish.
Just finished a major update to my arty-tees page. I’ve added new tshirts and hoodies as well as adding more color selections for some tshirts. There are two links for some tshirts because amazon only lets me pick 5 colors per tshirt or product, so I just made another listing with more color choices. Also, some good news, the price on the hoodies dropped, thanks to amazon.
These are the paintings now available on tshirts and a couple of hoodies:
The Beaten Path

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.
Here is a plein air painting recently done on a Tuesday, of course.
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.
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.
Met some friendly beach walkers and one dog that was mostly interested in digging to China.
B is for Bear. I’ve decided to start an animal alphabet.
A is for Armadillo. The only attractive thing about this animal is the pattern on its armour. Without getting too fussy and detailed I used a white crayon to make some marks that resemble the pattern and then watercolored over that. It sort of worked. It’s very hard to see the white crayon on the white paper.
Another plant flowering now.
Happy Fourth of July!
