Three of my faves sold last week. 🙂 😦
But fear not, I’ll do more!
This painting was done in Ft. Pierce as part of an invitational paint out. The last time I was in the neighborhood, this building was completely renovated. It wouldn’t be my choice as a painting subject anymore because all the character was removed.
The title is from that song by the B52’s – “Love Shack”. Of course being in Ft. Pierce it was probably more likely a Drug Shack.
It occurred to me this morning that I have more to show from Hobe Sound Beach and don’t know why my post was so short yesterday. My plan isn’t to blog daily because then I wouldn’t get any painting done, but will post frequently to start anyway.
This is a full shot of the painting that I use on my header and avatar. If you walk down to the end of Hobe Sound Beach this is what you see. Because it’s such a hike I painted this from a photo instead of hauling my art supplies out there.
I’ve also painted this view in pastels and it usually is hanging up at JayMar in Stuart, FL where I sometimes teach pastels.
Here is the larger version of the lifeguard station that I painted on location:
This is one of my small works – in fact I’ve painted this in a larger format as well. The lifeguard station is actually not the coolest type of lifeguard station in FL. It’s one of those metal things that seem to be portable. I’d prefer a nice old wooden structure with more character like the ones down in South Beach.
