Back to the Beach

Back to a favorite painting spot!  There are thousands of compositions just waiting to be painted here.  Ants, a gusty breeze, and heat (almost 90, again) made it a challenge.  Difficult to paint after 10, but worth the effort starting early.  I think this one is darn good!

You are intrepid. The heat kills me :(
I suffered fire ant bite this winter something awful. Never had them gravitate to me like they did this season.

This is beautifully done. Love the treatment of the leaves on the bush.
