Under the Palm Tree

8x6 acrylic on gessobord
This is where I'd like to be right now...relaxing in the shade of tropical palm tree, sipping on something refreshing, and maybe even taking a little nap!
I painted this for the "look up" DPW challenge this week.  Enjoy!

Surfer Boy

I love the reflections at the beach near sunset.  I really enjoyed working with the lighter grays.

End of a Summer Day

8x6 acrylic on gessobord
Well, the kids are back in school, the weather is cooling down, and I am trying to get back into a painting mode.  This is the 4th painting I've worked  on this week, and the only one I didn't throw across the room!  Boy is it hard to snap out of goof off mode!

I painted this from a photo I took this summer while cruising in the Canadian Gulf Islands.  It is so peaceful up there.  Our favorite time of day while cruising is near sundown.  Everything quiets down.  There is a sense of, "It doesn't get any better than this".  Yup, I am ready for next summer!
