Anyone who has been reading my blog lately knows I've been into painting boats and with all the rain and flooding we have had recently in South Louisiana, its kind of fitting.  We had about 6 inches of rain yesterday but other areas near here had up to 14 inches with more rain today. Thankfully we did not get the deluge of yesterday.

Here are a grouping of boats I completed recently.   The photos I painted from were taken on my plein air excursions.  All boats, except the black boat on the bottom left, were taken in Intracoastal City, LA.  The bottom left boat was taken in Ft. Meyers Beach, FL.

On another note, here is a picture of a visitor we had in our back yard Tuesday.  Maybe he was trying to tell us something.

This was the rain we got the next day...

Anyway, rain is over and the sun is out...
Happy Painting!
