Easy does It, Florida Art, palms, turtle, gator



"Easy Does It"

Love the little turtle on the trunk of the closer palm and the birds in the dead tree. I was inspired to paint this while out on a fishing trip.  It is cool how the palms grow upward after being blown down in a storm. Cycles of life are so fragile, and so evident.

Enjoy!

Down Stream, pasture, cattle, palms, Florida art

Did this painting entirely from memory.  I've seen many places similar to this.   I wanted to create a strong contrast along the bank and added the fence to break it up.  There is also a gator hiding in the water.


Enjoy!

Ready to frame.

Bottle brush, gators, egrets, wildlife, plein air


"Bottle Brush"
Plein Air painting

Got to do a paint-out a couple of weeks ago, at White City Park (Fort Pierce, Florida).
I was drawn to this gator laying on the bank, and then a smaller one swam toward me!  There were birds everywhere, and of course the bottle brush trees were in bloom.  It was a lovely spring morning.

Paradise at Sunset, Florida landscape with wildlife

"Paradise at Sunset"

This painting is the second in a series I started this summer.  I created them both from memory.  The animals are free-handed onto the canvas after I practice drawing them on paper first.  This time I reversed things and brightened the sky. Also included deer, egrets, turkey, hogs, and a gator. This is a truly original painting.  Most of mine are (unless I am doing one for a client that wants something from their photos).  I use my own images and /or my own sketches and free-hand everything.  Many artists today copy from photos, literally.  They get enlargements trace it off -- and sometimes it is not even their own photos!  You can read more about that by clicking here.

Easy Does It, Southern sunset, palms, wildlife

"EASY DOES IT"

Been working on this one for a couple of years, off and on.  Finally decided to add a turtle instead of birds on the trunk of the closer palm. I was inspired while out on a fishing trip.  Just love the way the palms grow upward after being blown down in a storm. 

Enjoy!

Moving On, sunset, landscape, rim canal

"Moving On"


Started as a demo with distant hills and a large lake. I went back later and turned the hills into the dike around Lake Okeechobee. Completely made this up from memory. Then I added the rocky shore, palm tree, and birds. Finally I made the alligator swimming in the canal.

Cypress Shores, landscape with egret and alligator

"Cypress Shores"

Painted this palette knife painting from memory, from a fishing trip we went on last week. There were so many birds and alligators that I just had to add them, but the painting was really about the interesting shapes the cypress trees made with the morning sky showing through them.
The palette knife texture is thick and the colors are strong, I even like the way the contrast turned out this time.

Ready to frame.

Little Stream, landscape with wildlife, alligator and heron

"Little Stream"

About This Painting: Added the wildlife to this older painting after I saw this gator swimming beside our boat down in the Everglades a few months ago. That was the closest I have ever been to a gator!

I wanted a little more realism also, so I repainted some of the trees and water.

Ready to frame.

Rising Water, plien air painting

"Rising Water"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on canvas board
(canvas mounted on hardboard)
Ready to frame

This is a painting I did on location last July. I have reworked it a little because it had always bothered me. I have toned it down some and added an egret and an alligator. The alligators are often hard to see, so I hid him at the lower right. (Click on the image for zoom.)


This painting is at Lake Okeechobee. Our lake is up to an average of ten feet now. Still very low. almost two years now it has been so low.

There is a teenage boy that was attacked by an alligator here at Nubbin's Slough last month. Why he was in the water swimming at night in this area is beyond me. You can see large alligators that live here at any given time. They wait by the lock where the water flows into the lake and feed on anything that comes through.

Nubbin's Gator, Plein Air, Impressionism

"Nubbin's Gator"


This gator is one of about five that live around Nubbin's Slough. He (or she?) is very large, at least 12 feet. He came out of the water and took a large fish up on shore and tossed it up in the air to align it and swallowed it whole! Then a little later he swam very quickly to the shore and caught a large bird before it could get away! I was stunned that the bird didn't see him. Scary!
I tried to show part of his tail in the water as he kept surfacing and you could see it -- often all you see is the head.

Bossman, Alligator, Impressonism, 8x10 Daily Painting




Title: Bossman, Alligator
Size: 8 x 10 inches
Medium: Acrylic on gessoboard

Not AvailableClick on the image to enlarge.



Saw this gator sunning last weekend when we went fishing. At first glance I only saw his tail. The rest of him was almost hidden in the lilly pads. When he turned toward us and went under, I got very nervous! He looked big enough to more than rock our boat . . .
