2019 Plein Air Competition in Delray

For this year’s Plein Air event in Delray Beach, I was happy to have my long-time artist friend, Margie Homan join me in Florida. For the practice day, it rained, and I managed to paint a street scene from the trunk of our car! … And ended up selling it too! Margie made a very lovely painting as well.

Thankfully, the day of the competition was beautifully sunny. Here are my entries for this year’s one-day competition.

Something New to the Table

Spring Mix Spinach Salad Garden Salad Fruit and Nut Salad

There will be a dozen of my new small 2014 flower paintings soon at the DVAC gift gallery. But this year, I’m bringing something new to the table – Salad! I wanted to study greens closely so I could be better prepared in landscape painting. The fact that this still life project is leafy and  very temporary is also an added bonus. 



If a Tree Falls

Tree CompanyHere is my entry for the short show at DVAC, “If a Tree Falls” June 21-28, titled,
“Tree Company”. There was an article in the news about a staircase structure at Cox Arboretum that looked incredible. It was! and gave me a great vantage point to do this painting in the late evening sun.
