My husband and I were able to take our first winter vacation in a very long time. We chose the Florida Keys which we hadn’t visited for over 30 years. Oh, it was so nice to bask in the warmth of the sun.
One of the nicest parts about the Keys is that there are so many places that visitors can pull over to fish…or in my case…paint. The Pentalic Aqua Journal (5 x 8) is perfect for painting broad landscapes. In the first painting, I was sitting in the shade while trying to capture the feel of being tucked away in the mangroves. The photos don’t do justice to the amazing aqua waters but it’s a nice memory.
The second painting was from a small park in the heart of Marathon. I liked the way the house across the inlet was framed by the pine tree. I took liberties to emphasize the house, actually more than I could really see it. Oh, well, that’s what artists do. Enjoy
