This was painted from a client's photo, which was taken from the veranda of their Florida home.
It was an absolutely wonderful photo and when I was asked to recreate it on canvas, I could hardly wait to get started. The sway of the grasses actually made me feel the slight breeze on my face.
Sometimes a photo or painting can "send" the viewer there, right to the location of the scene and this photo did that for me.
This is Oils on a 24" x 30" Gallery Wrap canvas ( 1-1/2" thick ) with painted edges, so it's rather impressive in person, just due to the bigger size.
I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent on this!
