Another oil on 6" X 8" panel from a photo taken while on a dinner cruise off Key West; summer '08 concert tour with Davidson Singers. We passed an island with this barn-like building which glowed in the fiery sunset. Those were some mighty fine times!

I've decided to try oil painting (again after 30+ years!) since I have to "pastel" in the attic (dust problems), and the attic is not air conditioned. I can paint with oils in the bedroom & have some nice colorful smudges on the bedspread. This painting is "break-through" for me in the literal sense since I've been unable to do anything artistically since sometime in 2008. I am hoping to deliver myself from a career that I dreamed I would retire from with great satisfaction, but instead has left me longing to go back and try something else. Oh well, wah waaaah. Who knows where this will lead...
