An Artsy Day

Spent a Saturday in Panama City, Fl.  The art center was hosting an exhibit by the Southern Watercolor Society.  Beautiful works by some very talented artists. Here are a few .  
 One of my favorites a Singer Featherweight sewing machine. An unbelievable realistic painting.   I have this exact one at home which I used when I was in my quilting mode. 
Came upon a sunflower field where they are commercialy grown.  I've seen many pictures like this, but first time I saw one in person.  

 Had to have one with the bee on it. ! ^^

 Acres and acres of sunflowers. 
This one was standing guard over the others. !! 
What a beautiful day to be alive.!

When I look at the last date I posted it's hard to believe how fast time is going.
 I've been busy and away helping a friend who's had hip surgery.   I can sympathize as I had both mine done a couple years ago.. 
 My painting station is a mild mess right now.  Working on some small pieces, very small .

Spent Sunday here on the Gulf of Mexico about a 2 hour drive from Tallahassee.
A fishing and oyster place that's very unique.  Took a lot of pictures and will paint a few.

Havana Florida

The town of Havana Florida, just eight miles south of the Georgia border and a few miles north of Tallahassee. 
It's the ideal place. Quaint, quiet, and artsy.  Ideal for me. 
 I live just out of town and a few minutes the other way into the Capital.. Busy,  a mix of urban and huge oak trees,  a big University city. Home of  Florida State U. and the Florida State Seminoles.   
 So I have the best of both worlds.    Havana, peaceful, one traffic light, antique stores, art galleries, little cafes. 
No supermarket, no banks, and yet 5 minutes the other way all I need is in the city. What could be better?  I get to gallery openings just about every Friday night.
Railroad Square, in Tallahassee near the University.

Sketch Book

This afternoon packed a small bag of art supplies , picked up a Chick-fil-A and headed to Lake Ella here in Tallahassee... weather was perfect... I mean as in 78 degrees and no humidity perfect.
The park has a big lake, gazebo and lots and lots of ducks, geese, mallards, swans.
 Wonderful big old trees everywhere.  So did some sketching, painting.  Not all of these were done today, in fact a couple may have been from last year.

So ... just a few sketches from my book, and this is where I do some at home.

See Ya !!!

Went to the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge on Sunday.
Beautiful weather right on the  northwest Gulf of Florida. 
A few memories from that visit. Thousands of acres dedicated to the preservation of our treasures here.
