Today's painting is a lot looser in style than my usual, but I love the brushy, reflective look of this one. I put the big brush to work trying to get some real feeling into the landscape without tightening up. This is a great exercise when I start getting too "leafy." It's from a frog or an alligator's perspective. I like the sense of movement with the grasses waving and the clouds racing. The low morning sun adds a color punch to all the blues and greens. Tonight is the last of the Sweet Art Gallery receptions, so if you can be in Naples anytime between 5 to 8 stop by the gallery and say hello. I've really enjoyed being part of Sweet Art and may do it again in the future. Have a great weekend!
