My First Florida On Location Painting!
These trips were fun and absolutely valuable learning experiences for me…and I’m sure for Bill. The wild untouched terrain on the Myakka, along with the alligators that surpassed our canoes in girth made for interesting and fun days J stroking up current and drifting down stream.
We subsequently had a two man show based on the works we produced. Over the years I only have one of those paintings remaining. It is the very first on location painting I executed in Florida. I don’t know why I kept it in my purgatory pile for so long…..in hind site, even though it isn’t a great painting or the best painting I have painted, it has a sentimental and benchmark value to me. I think I will keep it a while longer….unless I get an offer I can’t refuse….just saying.
Thanks for listening to my Cajun ramblings!
