They look super Ben, I love that first one! Nice graceful palm trunks, most of ours aren't that tall in Florida anymore. Congratulations on the show! Lori

Thanks Lori. These palms were very funky if you will. Some were very tall and almost branchless and others smaller and full of branches as you see in the palm peice. I am a fan of that place and am going back as soon as I get a chance ONLY to paint..... Thanks gain for looking and take care.

Ben, these are beautiful. The palms are fantastic. The square format really works for all of these.
(Sorry I missed your post in Studio from PA! I'll subscribe over there.)

They're all just great Ben, but the first one gets my vote, I just love it. But of course it looks more like a lot of places I see. Explain the little blue mid-night tent, is it a fishing thing, I feel silly asking, but wanted to know:lol: The landscape behind it is just great.

They're gorgeous, Ben! I especially love the one from Maui. Stunning!

Hi Ben. These look outstanding, but I'm going to head down there either today or tomorrow to see them in person because I KNOW that they'll be even better than outstanding IRL! I really like what you did with Partridge Road in terms of handling the detail. And I am a fan of the ice fishing shack in the dark, I'm a fan of the dark in general now! :)
I'll get back to you after I see the show in a day or two. You've worked hard and IT WILL pay off for you in time.

Good work. Love the Maui one, you captured it, brought me back there!

Thanks Brian, After studying most of the general arena of the more late landscape painters I like like the square format. i am thinking more along a different venue now and hopefully it will show in the next month or so...... i am on a thinking track....... More on that later.
Marcella, thanks for looking. The shack is called a Clam here. most fishermen use them as portable windbreaks if you will. They are great for wind blocking and setting up a little Mr. Heater propane tank and getting to fishing and staying warm, I cheated abit on turning it night and one thing is true though, I fished the day the day photo was taken and saw the full moon in full respects. I have been studying the works of many nocturne artists lately too, it is great inspiration to look at other painters work. The feel of mid night full moon isnt there but it feels like an interesting painting to me and most I have talked to that have viewd it felt it as well, specially fishermen.. Thanks again for looking and hope it helps explain....
