I love visiting the Planting Fields Arboretum in Oyster Bay. Their greenhouse has a wonderful room filled with orchids and once a year they have an orchid show. The inspiration for this painting for Day 10 of "30 Paintings in 30 Days" was a photo I took at their orchid show.
If you would like to see some of the other fantastic work that is being posted for the challenge, the link is here:
I have still been doing some digital sketches using Artrage on my iPad. This was done at Robert Moses State Park on New Years Day. It was cold so I sat in the parking lot facing the lighthouse. The park was crowded. I think a lot of people visit the beach on the 1st day of the year. There was even a big group having a New Years Day tailgate party. When I was done with the sketch I took a walk along the boardwalk to the lighthouse and back which is probably about 1 1/2 miles roundtrip. It was a good way to start the year.
