1531 SOLD Visit to House of Refuge Plein Air

I did this one awhile ago, had to tweak it a bit.  Its 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.  It started out very stormy, it rained the whole way from Ft. Pierce to the House of Refuge.  It was starting to clear here but there were still storm clouds in the sky.

1530 Live Oak on the Indian River Plein Air, Alla Prima

I had a great time painting today at the old Fort Park with the Plein Air Painters of the Treasure Coast.  I had a nice turnout and the weather was perfect.  This old oak is on the river side of the road, I took some liberties with it, there is a total jungle  to the right of the tree in real life. 

The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.  $250.

1529 Heathcote Heliconia Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this one at Heathcote Botanical gardens a couple of weeks ago, finally getting around to posting it.  The heliconia is the big plant on the left, there is a cracker rose in front of it.  On the right are some honeysuckles, I saw a few  humming birds flying around in them while I was painting.  It was a nice day. 

The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite, $250.
