Jacq and Sandra

February 19 I was fortunate to paint along with plein air painters in Sarasota. Jacq was down from New York to teach a two day workshop. I wasn't able to take her class but happy to meet her. She is the founder of IPAP. I hope she enjoyed her stay with her sister on Longboat Key.

Daily Painting 797 Its Me or Marty Little Jim's Bait and Tackle

I am naming the painting "Its Me or Marty" or "Little Jim's Bait and Tackle" The guy by the truck was walking towards us so I painted him in, thinking that spot in the painting needed something. He came over to look and I asked him who he thought it was and he said "its me or Marty." Below is the man and the truck and above is the whole painting. Its plein air, alla prima, it was a beautiful, breezy day. My group of painters, the Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast will be painting there again this tuesday. Its a fun place to paint with lots of things going on, boats and birds and interesting people. The painting is 8 x 10, oil, $200.

Sun Drop in Fly (oil 3x5) $50

This in Fly Tennessee painted on my laptop box. Some call them pochade but I like calling it a laptop. The Sun Drop machine on the sawmill workshop's porch caught my eye. Plus I like Sundrop soda.
