Wet Paint, Plein Air...

Stranahan House Roses
16x8, Oil/Linen Panel

Saturday, three of my painter friends and I were asked to paint at Stranahan House, an historic home that is now found tucked into the shadows of the high rises that make up downtown Fort Lauderdale. Our being there was an effort by a local Museum Group to raise awareness of the arts, or in our case, painting en plein air. Of the hand full of people that stopped by, several just wanted to know where to catch the water taxi... but a few kids wanted to know if Stranahan House is really haunted?? I didn't have an answer and we all just smiled about the idea. Well, who's smiling now?... check this out. We will be painting there again on June 26, 1-4 PM. If you are in the area, stop by and feel the "Spirits" of Old Fort Lauderdale... if you dare....

I think you should start painting some figures "plein air" and when people ask you what you're painting you say: "why, those people over there! Don't you see them??" LOL ; ) !

Absolutely! Besides, it would give people another reason to think I'm bonkers...

I love this one, Greg.
I'm intrigued that you were on the Cape for the 9/11 event. It was like the world ended when someone came and told me about what was happening.

Thanks, Mary! I know what you mean... when I heard the news I stood in disbelief knowing things would never be the same. It was a remarkable place to be...
