Day Two Artist Challenge

Day Two of the Artist Challenge brings back more memories of plein air painting in the 90's on the Bud Adams sprawling cattle ranch in St. Lucie County.  Bud kept his property as close to "natural" as possible, instructing his cowboys to eliminate any plants not native to Florida.

No hunting was allowed on the property so wildlife was abundant.

White tailed deer, flocks of wild turkeys, egrets, herons, ibis, alligators, etc. could be seen on every trip onto the ranch.

These are three paintings from those "good ole days".

5 Day Artist Challenge

If you enjoy seeing original art of all types now is the time to be on Face Book.  A challenge is circulating throughout the arts community with individual artists challenging artists of their choice to post 3 of their works each day for 5 days, then that artists challenges other artists to do the same.

What makes this so exciting for everyone is that all on Face Book get to see and enjoy art that they otherwise may not have had the opportunity to see.  New artists may be discovered by collectors and friendships forged.

My friend and artists Susan Koon has honored me with this challenge.  This is day one and these are my three paintings.
