Notes From my Residency Journal
This is the second painting I have done of Butler Park. It is a lovely and quiet county park in Crescent Beach, right off A1A. There is a nice boat ramp and large parking lot. Covered pavilions with tables are scattered under large shade trees and there is a bathroom with indoor plumbing as well. It faces the river, so there are lots of water and wading birds in the canal and the river. It is a great place to photograph or to paint. I saw no place to pay fees so I believe it must be free with no boat ramp or park fees.
