THE "FABULOUS FLORIDA" SHOW


     Next week St Augustine Art Association has another show, "FABULOUS FLORIDA". This time we are allowed two entries. The first is one I recently finished.  It is a beach scene with sand and sea oats, mostly impressionistic.  It is a very large gallery wrap canvas.

      The second one is different.  It is more a fine art painting of the Scarlet Ibis birds found here in  Florida.  They are very rare, actually on the endangered list.  They are also gorgeous bright red birds!  Native to the northern tip of South America, they migrated here to Florida and can now be found all along the Gulf Coast and Atlantic in Florida.  Some say there are a few in South Carolina and south, not sure about that, but I also decided to add a Roseate Spoonbill. The paintings are below.  Enjoy!

     The Fall MEMBERS Show is almost over. We were only allowed one entry for that, as it is very popular.  They also had an AFTERMATH show of any artwork done after the hurricane Matthew or Irma.  I entered both.  Below are the paintings.

AS A SIDE NOTE, I HAD A CONTEST ON FACEBOOK TO  NAME THE TOP PAINTING AND IT WAS A LOT OF FUN!  I GOT MANY GOOD SUGGESTIONS, BUT THE WINNER WAS "OFF THE BEATEN PATH" AS YOU SEE ABOVE.  THE PRIZE WAS A 5 X 7 PAINTING OF HER CHOICE.  BELOW IS A PHOTO OF US TOGETHER WHEN SHE PICKED UP
