This view is late evening as the sun starts to set. Just enough light comes shining in and lights up only portions of the sea. My Jeep's cast shadow is also seen here with some sailboats in the distance.

Had a blast today! Thank you everyone for taking the time to come out and paint with me. I taught a group of super fun people painting in the sun at the Moody Gardens Mansion in Galveston Island, Texas. We will do another workshop like this in the future. Below are the only photo's I have for you as we started to set up. Everyone kept me super busy and I forgot to take more photo's. I didn't get everyone included, more coming and going to get gear. If anyone has any photo's of the group send them to my email and I'll post them.

A spontaneous painting do to the traffic on Seawall Blvd, thank you Labor Day!! I decided I'd just park at the first open spot and paint something. As I looked out the people on the beach were interesting and kids playing in water but will they sit still long enough. There was one guy on a rock but nahh. I figured I would just do a surf painting something like this. After gearing up under the shade of the jeep I noticed what I really liked, the light on the rocks and the shadow they cast upon the beach, it just came together nicely. The waves that day at this location were bouncing around do to the construction plus tourist asking if they could take a look. I just responded oh I just started. Sometimes I have to do that especially since these are worth all my time I can put into them while on location. If this one doesn't sell I think it just might become part of my permanent collection.

This is my first pochade box I made about five years ago. It has since traveled to some amazing places, had a bad spill, but got right back up on the tripod and kept doing it's best. The design is inspired by the artist, Trevor Chamberlain, one of my favorite artists. He had a design with a thumb hole in his. This one doesn't have the thumb hole but has the sliding palette and can hold 2 6x8 panels in the lid. It can all lock up secure with the palette still full of paint and all the paint tubes tucked underneath. In the front is some Oil pastels in a jar for added bonus.

Nice clouds would be an understatement as they were booming everywhere today. I settled for the quickest view but really nice one as they were moving out pretty fast at the end of the day. The surprise above a rain cloud dropped a lot of rain all of a sudden after I finished the painting.
