Digital photo
Okay, another photo, this time from the mangroves on a day of kayaking. It's been getting very hard to do any artwork. I have one pastel sketch I will add soon, and have big plans to do some paintings this week. Until then, more exploring with guests and more photos!

Two Ibises

Digital Photo
I find these birds, the Ibises to be not only beautiful, but also very comical. They have been roosting on these wires near the house I am in, and all I want to do is take pictures of them. They bob and primp and scuttle along the wires, and they eat cat food fed to them by a local. They appear to be like cartoon characters, so entertaining and fun to watch.

Self Portrait

Digital Photo
I have never painted a self portrait, so I thought this could take the place of one, for now at least. There was a reflective sculpture on the beach that consisted of several panels. The distortion and grainy clarity made for an interesting shot. (I did several) Fun to play around!

Key West sculptures

This was Jack and the Beanstock size!!!!!

Outdoor sculptures
I made it to Key West, and I am enjoying it very much. I have been riding a bike and walking everywhere, seeing a million paintings to be painted in my mind. I have not done any artwork yet, but hope to get some accomplished, eventually. I have however, been viewing a lot of artwork every where, as these sculptures here outside. There is a whole array of these, keeping all us tourists amused and entertained. This was a play on Matisses' Dancers, very clever and very well done. When walking among these, with other people around it was hard to figure sometimes who was real and who was a statue.
I spent a day walking thru an outdoor art show, and have just seen more modern sculptures on a beach path. I will be posting more of these. My art blog is going to become a journal of sorts, it is a very lively colorful spot here, with great food and constant activity. I hope my creativity is stimulated with new vision. Hope you are all painting and keeping busy!!
