I once knew an artist who felt it was best to not paint sunsets because he believed the subject was overdone. Well, I disagree and am in the process of painting two more large sunsets

"Kayaks For Rent", by Jack Providenti

"Kayaks For Rent"
12 x 16 inches, oil on canvs
By Jack Providenti

Driving through Fort De Soto Park when the colors and arrangement of the kayaks for rent sparked my interest. I painted most of it late morning when it was about 97 degrees. Spent about 2 hours before I went beyond my tolerance for the heat, so I finished it in my studio at home.

"Charisma" 9 x 12 inches, oil on canvas...Docked at Demens Landing, St Pete. I saw this beauty tucked in the mangroves and was immediately inspired. That the boat is named "Charisma" is coincidental with the aura of the scene that morning.

Live Figure Drawing, Second Session

Live Figure Drawing at Softwater Studios, St Pete

 This was a twenty minute pose. I'm primarily a landscape/seascape painter, and after two and a half hours of drawing from live models...several poses of two to four minutes, then five twenty minute poses, I'm beginning to see the virtue of studying live models as an added discipline.
