It was another hot and humid day on Long Island. But friends and I were so tired of staying in due the COVID 19 virus. Enough is enough, we protected ourselves with wearing face mask and keeping a safe distance. After adjusting to the discomfort of the hot and humid air and insects, we settled down to seeing the beautiful scene in front of us. That was it, forgetting all of the discomforts of a hot summer day, we rejoiced that we were actually out doors and enjoying the day. I do hope everyone is safe . Happy Painting everyone.

8x16 oil on panel
We give ourselves so many reasons not to go out and paint. Too hot, too cold, same old places that we always go, but the thing is, just go. Stony Brook has always been my go to place to paint. What never fails to amaze me, is that, the same place looks so different from hr to hr. From day to day. So its always a new and wonderful experience.

9x12 oil on canvas panel
Went to Heckscher Park and to our surprise we had windsurfers. Never before have I seen this in person.
Delightful sight to behold.
|The Lone Surfer,|
My first day, there was only one surfer. I set up my french easel in the sand.
It was a very windy day, my determination to just do a sketch, won out and I now have a
painting with the authentic evidence of sand on my panel.

Missing those warm days at the beach painting from life, had to be satisfied with
photos and my memory. Also trying a new technique which I absolutely love, great fun.

|Peek a Boo: 6x8 still life acrylic|
My first attempt at a still life from September. I did the 30 day Stradaeaseasel challenge. Since then I've done my usual and favorite theme of atmospheric landscape. Yesterday, went out looking for new props , went to Trader Joe's a purchased mandarin oranges, and to wal mart for artificial flowers and a white milk vase. These are just a few of the paintings I did in September. I do love painting a still life and also find it very challenging. So now here we are the last day of February there is a chill in the air, perfect to be home painting in the studio. All of the painting below are posted on my etsy shop. Originalpaintingsbyjoansart. Happing painting everyone.

Went to Short Beach with friends. I started this 8x10 on location and finished it at home. I am always surprised when using acrylic paint, never know what to expect.

8x10 oil on canvas
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. It’s another rainy day on Long Island and once again home bound. Longing for the sunny days to go out and paint. Yesterday I painted this marsh painting from a photo taken last week. Since the beginning of the year I been painting in w/c and acrylic, yesterday was the first time my oils were used.
Posted this painting in my etsy shop last night and this morning realized it is too wet to mail out if someone wants it, now fingers crossed no one wants it lol. While having my morning coffee a revelation occurred, maybe acrylic paintings for the etsy shop would be better. They are easier to ship.
Well enough, I am procrastinating and do have a busy day ahead. Happy Painting everyone.
