"Snapdragons" was painted last weekend at the Art in the Garden event during the International Flower and Garden Festival at EPCOT. The bed of snapdragons was so thick and blazing red against the green grass I had to paint them!
The painting is 4" x 2" on gallery wrapped canvas. Bidding starts at 99 Cents. Shipping and packaging are FREE. The deadline is Monday April 5, 5pm EST.
We had a very lively series of bids last week that kept me hopping the last few hours. So, remember this is an auction and the winner is determined by the time stamp on your email .

I certainly hope I will be invited back next year and that my schedule allows me to participate.

All but one of my paintings this year were done at Lake Prevatt. The ever changing weather brought a new look to the lake each day. Some mornings dawned misty and grey, afternoons were bright and windy, evenings were...well ... different from the one before. Plein air painting is all about the light...or lack there of.

It has been two weeks since I have been able to post a new miniature painting for the auction. There was no WIFI service at Wekiva State Park where I painted all week during the Plein Air Event March 1 - 7. When I returned home after the event I barely had time to unpack all the plein air equipment, wash and repack my clothes, load up my art festival gear and paintings before I was off to the 3 day Vero Beach "Under the Oaks" Fine Art Festival. So, posting a painting during the few days I was home was impossible. Sometimes I "overbook" my schedule and try to be in 2 places at once. Thanks for being patient with me.

I have hardly unpacked from the Wekiva Paint out and here I am packing to leave again. But, that is the name of the game this time of year. March and April are packed with paint outs and festivals, and of course, I must attend them all......or at least I seem to think so.
I have pictures from Wekiva that I will post when I get a minute. This was the fourth paint out event so I have gotten familiar with the terrain and the best places to paint. Graceful deer crossed my path as I tramped through the brush in the evenings. Turkeys strutted and showed off in the mornings. Even though the weather was not the best....Yep, I will do it again next year.
