Today's daily Everglades painting is of six palms soaking in the rain. The colors are muted and there's not much definition. The landscape flattens out and softens, and that's reflected here. I find the soft colors restful, though and the final result pleasing.
Here's a second pass on the demo from the Ladies Luncheon at the Yacht Club last week. It's starting to take shape now, but still has quite a bit of work before I'll call it finished. My great friend Kathy Caruso did a wonderful job of publicity for this event, and if you missed the demonstration you can read about it in the Marco Island Eagle or the Marco Island Sun Times. There's a photo of door prize winner Kathleen Rinaldo with her painting, too! Thanks, Kathy!
If you haven't got plans for the weekend yet, consider attending the 2009 Spammy-Jammy at Goodland's Little Bar this Saturday. It's a tradition meant to appease the Hurricane Gods, and we all want to do that! Spam sales are doing very well in this economy, and the party will certainly boost local purchases! Wear your best PJ's, and be ready to party. You can bring along either a spammy recipe creation, or a spammy art work if you'd like. You'll see such creations as Sockeye Spamon, Spamzilla, Spam-a-Claus and Spamoni. It's quirky, yes, funky, yes, and some of the best creativity ever!
