After a good breakfast I headed over to the Phoenix Gallery in Bellport to see what some of the other artists were up to. That was sort of our "home base" where we had snacks, water, and most important of all a restroom.
Next I headed back down to the Bellport dock and painted what I was told later is "rowboat beach." There are always colorful rowboats and kayaks pulled up on the beach there. I sat in the shade and I did the view of the boats with some of the larger boats in the marina and the yacht club on shore.
Here is my painting against the view.
Here is the painting itself.
By this time I figured I had done enough water scenes for the day and headed back into town.
Bellport is a small town with some cute stores and businesses. This is a local restaurant called "The Bellport." However on the outside all is says is "Restaurant."
Here is my painting of it.
I had other plans so I couldn't paint on Saturday. Can you guess which two paintings I submitted on Sunday for the show? I put in the sunrise and the boats on the beach. The show will be on exhibit until Sept 20th and we are having a reception on Sept. 7th from 1 - 4. It will be fun to see the paintings that were entered...too bad there wasn't room for them all.
