Mimosa on Scenic Hwy, 14x18, Oil. Showing at Pensacola Museum of Art.
I mentioned to Rob, a fellow painter, that I wished I knew someone who live along Scenic Highway, so we could paint there. Turns out- he lives right across the street and invited us over. At first it was the mimosa tree by the road that caught my eye. Then I spied this distant land/building/water combo. After I saw it from the perspective I finally chose, all I had to do was make that Mimosa at the top of the hill bloom, combining the best of both worlds, a merging of thoughts. So, that also, I like- It's improvised. It speaks beyond what was visible. It was sort of pieced together, with the patches falling into place.
