Dazzling Surf

Diane Mannion, Dazzling Surf, 9x12" oil on linen, plein air
A FB Pick of the Day!!! Yay!!!
This painting juried into the Women Painters of the SE, 2014 Show!
Great Morning

Painted on location this morning with my artist buddy at Caspersen Beach, Venice.  Close enough to the surf to feel a cool splash now and then.   Pulled the easel back a few feet away from the incoming tide.

"How lucky we are!" we said, thinking of folks up north dealing with ice and snow. 

And as if the morning wasn't perfect enough, this Great Blue Heron struck a pose right next to us!

Lovely Diane! I'm thinking of driving down and painting at Caspersen Beach on Wednesday morning, perhaps I'll see you there...?

Can't make it this Wednesday, Cory. Darn. I'll let you know the next time.

Nice painting Diane, I like your commentary and the hereon (we have one in our back yard too) but not the ocean or the warm weather!
Best, Matt

Thank you, Matthew. My sympathies for you folks up north!
