Quittin’ Time: Kayaks at Dusk

Quittin’ Time

This was the scene as my husband and I pulled out kayaks out of the lake at dusk. We love to kayak together: he fishes, I paint. So we can be together, yet separate, each enjoying our own passion.

The lake was quiet, and the clouds reflected on it as we left. A perfect painting subject.

My Latest Watercolor Painting

Can’t get enough of St. Joe Peninsula State Park. We’ve been coming here for 15 years and I never tire of it. I painted this #pleinair as soon as the park opened to avoid the heat. A heron obliged by showing up as soon as I started. 5×7″ #watercolorpainting #landscape #floridastateparks #mariapeagler #30paintingsin30days

My Latest Watercolor Painting

Early Sunset. I captured this scene while the sky was still blue at the top but turning bright oranges and scarlet on the horizon. I could paint a sunset every night and no two would look the same.

Dusk at Fort Mountain State Park

I painted this plein air at the beginning sunset at Fort Mountain State Park in Chatsworth, Georgia. I captured the light and shadow as they danced on the fence, rocks and trees. While it was light when I started, by the time I was finished, I was in almost total darkness in my hike back to my car.
