PEPPER BEACH PARK By Cecelia Lyden

acrylic/canvas

11x14



Pepper Beach Park is one of many small parks along A1A in Fort Pierce, Fla. This park is on both sides of the highway--the beach side and the Intracoastal/Indian River side. We chose a niche on the river side. In all honesty, the mosquitos were eating me alive, so I left, having painted for only 2 hours. The bridge and figure were completed indoors. This painting is not 100% plein air, but it was started and inspired outdoors.

Nice painting, looks like a beautiful quiet spot, just you and the gaters. Do you have your PA orange hunting hat along for protection? All our maskeeters are sleeping right now since it is January but will come out when you get back. Bugs sure like plein air painters. See you soon.

This is a great painting, Cecelia! Love the way the bridge leads the eye into the painting. I love the greens and the sense of warmth in this! Hope you are having a wonderful time down there!
