Kill Devil Kittywake

Behind is the Avalon Pier in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. The town puts on a fireworks display every year.on the 4th of July. We all bring lawn chairs and sit together on the beach.  A mixed crowd of faces, Republicans some, Democrats some, here enjoying a summer evening. A tribe shares the beach and shares mounting anticipation.  We sit together on the beach in the dark, waiting to sigh in unison ...."ohhh....ahhhh...".
whats up with that?

Here is honesty. I tried hard to replicate these shapes and colors as best as I am capable. No pictures, monitors or printers, just my hand and eye. Honesty.

Tropical Fantasy

I paint most days, I don't blog like I used to. I am so old school. I still take photos with my Olympus and then load them onto this computer, then crop them and then post them. I know there is a better methodology for this, but, like I said, I paint most days.

AzĂșcar

I make it a rule never to use others peoples photos. Dawn, (girl in picture)
is a  friend and painter (artist, not houses) who lives in Kitty Hawk. I saw this picture of her and her horse "AzĂșcar"( Spanish for Sugar). I loved the light in the photo and asked her if I could paint from it. Here are the results.

Corova Beach

Here is one right at the end of 2016.
Here is the end of my 8th full year of painting and blogging about it.
this is blog post #1610. 1610 times I have braved judgement and hit the "publish" button.
It does not get easier, but solace comes in seeing that yes, I am a better painter. 102 paintings this year. Keep up the good work, Rick.
