First Place... ~Gulf Breeze~ !!

"Gulf Breeze" 14x18, Oil. 

Meet my new Prize Winner! "Gulf Breeze"- 1st Place in the Art Study Club Fall Show! Many of Pensacola's finest artists are members of this long-standing club (est. 1957). I'm honored to be among them.
On a breezy day back in April this painting was conceived in yep, Gulf Breeze, Florida. That particular boat continued to attract my glance through the window as our group shared lunch.
Craig Reynolds from Gadsden, Alabama was our Honorable Judge. He was good about explaining the strengths of the 77 artworks he chose from. A portrait won "Best of Show".
He likes to paint en plein air. So naturally, he could be spotted out in the open-air while along the coast.
