Boathouse Reflections

My objective on this painting was to paint the reflections in the water. I had a short time to do the painting on Lake Osceola as the sun was setting quickly. I ran out of time as darkness enclosed me. Thus I packed up my gear and completed the painting at a later date. I added the darker shapes in the background area, shadows under the dock and some darker brush strokes on the front and shadow side of the boathouse.

Lavender Lady

This painting; "Lavender Lady," was started during the Winter Park Paint Out.
I ran out of time and did not complete it for the reception. Later, I spent about a half of an hour working on this painting to add the darker shade of green on the pads and added some transparent accents.

The Winter Park Paint Out is over and was a tremendous success for the Polasek Museum. Hundreds of visitors toured the museum and came to see 24 unique artist work on their paintings and demonstrate their talents. I created the painting "Morning Light" while enjoying the gardens in front of the Museum. The gardens were the most magnificent I have ever seen them this week.
