Keepin' it real - almost

This lovely bunch of coconuts was painted a couple of weeks ago and has been at the printers have its picture made, so giclee prints are available of this image. I call this style "contemporary realism". It is a studio painting from a photo I took of a palm tree in my neighborhood. The punched up color and the graphic black edges in some areas were deliberate choices to create some visual excitement. The one thing I don't want you to be when you look at my work is bored!

It's been awhile

I know it's been awhile since I have posted, but I have been busy doing lots of fun stuff. I was up in South Beach and had the good fortune to make a friend of this egret. He will be a great photo reference for a fun painting.
Isn't he handsome?

I also took some great photos for beach path paintings.

South Beach has these wonderful life guard stands that are painted all different colors.

I went to a rockin' party at the "W" and danced the night away with old friends.

View from the room.

And I have done a little work. Made some orange juice squeezers.

And did some dip sets in black, a color I rarely use. As you can see my camera did turn up. It was on a chair in the back yard for three weeks and still works. Imagine that.
Everyone have a great day.
