Duck Farms

Here's a large image (about 4 feet by 4 feet) I've been working on for a long time now and it's just starting to come together.

The image is a night time scene, loosely based on the old duck farms on Gazzola Drive.  Still to be added are a bunch of streetlights and maybe a few windows on the buildings. 

Can't wait to work on this more and post the final product.

Here is a new painting I just made.  I plan on entering it in Charmingwall's 6x6 project for the month of October.

Bellport Battling Brushes

Yesterday I participated in the "Bellport Battling Brushes Contest" at the Phoenix Gallery in Bellport Village.  Contestants were given 3 hours to complete a painting on site in bellport village.

I chose a spot on the beach and received 3rd prize for my painting of the Bellport Yacht Club.
Here is the finished painting:

Everyone's work was very impressive and it's encouraging to meet other people who enjoy landscape painting.  

1st prize went to Laurence Johnston, who I met for the first time yesterday.  Larry is a great artist and a really nice guy.
