1587 Kapok Tree at the Causeway Park Plein Air Alla Prima

The kapok trees are in full bloom at the Causeway Park here in Ft. Pierce.  I had fun painting here today, this is the smaller tree, there is a really big one too.  I think its so cool that they bloom in November. The sky was totally overcast when I got there, then it cleared with almost no clouds.  Its been clearing and clouding all day. 

Went to see the aquariums at the Smithsonian there, they are very interesting as always with lots of nice fish and other creatures.  Texture close up below.

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