Ft . Lauderdale Yacht Club

this acrylic was a delight to paint.

yachts are a little off the beaten path for me... . but.. since it was a commission -- i'm up for the challenge!

the task was specific-- a small photo... tightly cropped -- painted in a realistic way.

since i grew up in FL -- i have a familiarity with the landscape. Florida is very close to my heart.

i dream of salty breezes... and waving palms all the time!

the robin blue sky .. and the turquoise water.. are all reminiscent of warmer days and gentler times for me.
