4th of May Cafe

4th of May Cafe, L. Daniel, 12 x 9, SOLD


This past weekend I participated in The Plein Air Affair, a 3 day plein air event that took place on St. Simons Island, Georgia where I am visiting (and painting) for the next few weeks. The event was a fundraiser for Glynn Art, the local art association. Eighteen of us painted, displayed our wet paintings, and painted some more. It was a wonderful group of artists to hang out with. This piece sold in the grand finale silent auction on Saturday night. Great cause, great fun!!


"4th of May" is a little cafe in the village of St. Simons Island. It's a favorite eating spot for locals and tourists alike... and a lovely sight on a sunny morning!

Laurel,
Wonderful painting of 4th of May- always loved that big tree. Sounds like an amazing art event- sorry I missed that! Will have to do it next year. You are having a well deserved amazing year already!

No wonder it sold at the event, it's a beaut! We're hoping to go to the Music Festival in Savannah next year. Looks like a beautiful place to be. Maui was wonderful and I often thought about you with the trees.

I love orange and green. This painting tells me how right I am. It also reminds me of how good you are. Like I needed to be reminded. Not.

Sounds like a wonderful event. It must be fun to paint in unison with several artists for a fundraiser. Love the feeling of cool shade in this one.
