Plein air in Matlacha (mat-la-shay). Landlord of this building asked for his 15% when I sell the painting, so I'll have to raise my price. (Maybe landlords asking for a percentage of scene could be Danger of Plein Air Painting #4357). Had my shade umbrella bungee-corded to a fence while the sun cooked the lady painting next to me a deep shade of hideous pink. Painted fast so we could break for lunch. So, Dangers of Plein Air Painting #4356 (drum roll please)... OSPEYS. Little did we know when we picked our spot that we were under the flight path of a pair of nest-building ospreys! And it wasn't the poop that worried us. The sticks they were carrying were the size of broomstick handles. We watched them drop a few as they skirted directly overhead.
