"Getting Off Time", 11x14, Oil
This sunset was our conclusion to an adventurous day of painting. Number 3 of 3, which is my record. While Dawn Martin was in town for the Great Gulf Coast Art Festival, she contacted our group for some painting company, thanks to a fellow blogger's suggestion. (Thanks Rose Marie!) After two at the beach and lunch at Margaritaville, we followed the light to the edge of Big Lagoon. This was someone's backyard view before Ivan took everything but the tile floor and foundation. I'm glad all the neighborhood no-see-ums decided to take up residence on this vacant lot, though at the time it was a persistent bug battle, till packing up- "I wonder how long, from start to finish?". "Check your phone, you're sister called." "Oh, yeah, 23 minutes ago." A quick study. Then we were off, to my place, porch-time, observe the moon trajectory begin again.
