Quiet Cove

Quiet Cove, 6 x 6

This is a spot I desperately wanted to get back to to paint, but really didn't have time.  This particular scene was a view from the waterfront of the property of an old Florida plantation. The oaks on the property were incredible, towering things with moss hanging from the branches.  The home itself had been meticulously restored, but the view from the water's edge held my attention.  I guess scenes like this were my unintentional focus for the week.  I have to credit a friend for getting me out to the plantation.  He'd discovered it on a long bike ride a year or two ago, and insisted I join him for a look.  Thanks, Allen!

It's great to have friends who will go out scoping for you! I agree with Leslie... I want to go too! It looks so beautiful.

Morning, I look forward to the next few paintings so I will know where you have been this week. I love how you paint where you are. The lake pictures make me want to go fishing.

I hope it is not too hot where you are. They are saying that the Gulf Coast of TX is like being in 110 degree wx. Wow!

Julie, I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at your paintings from Watercolor. They are all quite beautiful. Your hard work is really paying off. Craig and I used to take the kids to Seaside in the summers when they were younger, so I know the area. Great times! Beautiful beaches. Great work!

Love your entire series of Marsh paintings. The tall trees are so wonderfully portrayed. It is amazing how much detail you get from your very quick touches in forming the branches.
