Plein Air Florida Beach Figures Umbrellas Ocean Spray Clouds Buildings


2007   $80 (special price for older paintings, see right for details)   - for some reason this painting was in my draft and never posted, hmm...I do remember painting this right on the beach in the sand, there is even a little "souvenir" sand on the painting, you can see it in the sand on the pic above.

"Ocean Spray"

 6"x6" oil on primed masonite. The title comes from the fact that we have had a misty ocean spray everyday this week making the horizon blend right in with the sky. Thankful for another beautiful day on the beach. As I have mentioned before, I love to paint right on the beach with all the people out doing their thing. So relaxing and theraputic. This year my husband set up an easy-up awning thing to paint under, which was great. This is my last day in Florida, I took hundreds of pics and hope to paint more from our trip when I return to colder temperatures.
(oops, disregard the cardboard in the lower left hand of the picture of this painting, I didn't realize at the time it was in the pic.)
