Bird Island Light
Notes From My Residency Journal
On Saturday I'm off to the Canaveral Seashore Paint Out and will be comfortable in a cozy condo, provided by sponsors Mike Hull and Donna Gentile-Orlando, FL. Unlike my other residencies, my time will not be my own so I won't be doing any research on the area, but I'll be going back in January for a real residency, so I'll have a lot more information for you about that part of natural Florida.
Paint Outs are all about promotion and sales, so it is a very different atmosphere than the thoughtful, careful paintings I would do for a residency. I am with a large group of painters and promoters for this event and the purpose is to make money for Canaveral National Seashore with our sales. We do a number of paintings during the week and sell them at the Gala event for visitors.
I'll have a report when I return.
