acrylic on canvas, 30x30

The Artist Colony at the Esplanade had a wonderful turnout for our Art Walk and especially nice to see so many of our local friends and neighbors. Our guests really seemed to enjoy joining us for a glass of wine, grazing on yummies, listening to the music, and visiting the three galleries to chose their favorite painting. Votes will be counted today, and you can stop by and there will be a nice yellow ribbon to highlight the People's Choice for the month.

The Sun Chases the Moon from the Sky, my painting for the Art Walk theme of Moon Over Marco was finished late in the day, just in time to get it in place before our guests started arriving. I didn't have my usual amount of "looking time", and reviewing it in the photo, I may need to do a little adjusting before I'm ready to let it go. The area where the water and the grass meet is just a little too strong and draws the eye too much, and if the reflection line were a bit more varied it would provide more interest. These small adjustments will make have a big effect on the final painting.

Computer woes continue. I learn just enough to get by, and when things go wrong it's really troublesome. Some of the problems are my technical lack of knowledge, and others are the result of working with an old, overstretched computer. I apologize for any inconvenience, and I'm workin' on it!

I enjoyed your comments about you're painting, and the adjusting you are considering. I have never been to Florida. so can only imagine what it looks like. I love the colours very soft and sensual/

I fell in love with the Florida landscape years ago, and still find it still inspires me. Hope you'll get to see for yourself some day! Thanks for stopping by.
