Florida Forgotten Coast Plein Air Paint Out

Here's a handful of images from the the May 2-12 festival at the florida gulf.....was a very impressive array of artists, and a great thrill to participate.

Here's a simple study painted while visiting one of my artist friends, Gina Brown, a few months ago.  Gina's a particularly good artist, and has a real knack for capturing, very quickly and spontaneously, the essence of a subject, whether it be faces or flowers or anything.  (her link is on the sidebar).
 Perhaps the looseness and simplicity of this piece is more expressively interesting than a more formal still life painting.
