Day Trip: The Glades #393

I couldn't sleep last night I was too excited. I recently opened my inbox to the most gracious invite from one of the inhabitants of the Glades to come on over and paint for a day. . . I wasted no time. . . today was the day. . . It's just so beautiful, unspoiled with expansive ocean views and beautiful fields of grass. Even the parking spot has an ocean view!

I did three little paintings of the red barn while I was there today . . .I'll post one painting today and live with the other two for a while.

Some daily painters paint more than a painting a day. And so do I, but the painting I post on the blog is always done that same day, for better or worse. . . If I'm having a bad painting day I might wait until the next day to post the bad one w/one that hopefully turns the corner a bit. . . sometimes it takes me three paintings to get one I am comfortable posting. Other days, they paint themselves and some days, I consider letting Brie paint! But today, was a good day!



  1. very exciting work. Can't wait to see more from the glades.

  2. Thank you! I think I'm going to 'play' w/the paintings I did on new canvases. . . .

  3. beatuiful, love the colors in the shadows!

  4. I love these big volumes filling out the pictorial space, like slices and hunks of thick moist cake made out of BARN.

  5. OH! I do love cake! Nice description, thank you!
