Well it seems even the boats are wrapped up for the holidays! I visited Green Cove Springs Marina and painted en plein air with a good friend who used to store her boat there. It’s a great place as boat owners are able to work on their own boats in the yard so there is always a lot happening. Especially since most of these folks are getting ready to sail to the Bahamas for the winter season….. ahh it’s a […]

Guest Judges were Peter Cerreta and Kathleen Maling. I picked up 2nd place for a ‘plein air’ oil study of the magnificent cactus that grows in the sand dunes all along the A1A. I was so amazed by the stunning plants that I asked one of the locals, if people had actually planted them, only to be told they are all native to the region. My painting of a prickly pear cactus got great comments from the judges! It was […]
