The Marina .. Sausalito, Ca.

I thought I had posted this one, maybe its on my Flickr. I did have it on my Etsy and its just been sold. This was one that I did right after moving back to Florida from the San Francisco area. Its the Marina in Sausalito and I hope my painting did it justice because it was truly a beautiful place.

Coconuts in the Keys

While visiting friends in the Keys, I was sitting right under this coconut tree..
I took a picture of it from that angle, and when I painted it that's all I painted.. no tree, just the coconuts. Go ahead,.... walk on the wild side, sit under a coconut tree. !!

The Poppy

The Poppy is my all time favorite flower, the petals look like translucent tissue paper, the colors are amazing and I love painting them. In the south (Fl.) they don't do well I suppose because of the heat. When I lived for a few years in northern Ca. I'd see them all the time, even growing wild ... Beautiful! I've cropped this painting to just the one bloom.

Tropical Orchids

I took a picture of this orchid plant hanging in the next yard while I was in South Florida. I think I fussed with it too much, but that's my MO ! And if I'm painting, I'm happy!!
