Naples

I am itching to make up the Drive By paintings which have been on my mind for this entire drive by. I did snap 424 photos along the way, like I'd never seen any of it before, but, it's about the light and the light is always different.
We had a great trip, except for 12 hours a day in the car with each other ;) and two cats who were intermittently vocal, and the ultimate 'Pet friendly" DIVE (think cooties) of a room last night. Just kidding. You have to have a sense of humor to be doing this, and we do. 
We toasted our 10th season here in Naples as though we had never been here before and it was a new adventure, which, it kind of is.
I am setting up the studio tomorrow and will be ON these paintings, which as I've painted them have spoken to me in that way that makes me want to paint many more views of life on the road......so stay tuned...
Thank you all for following my 30 Paintings in 30 Days  journey, it keeps me going ;) ;)

What a wonderful series and now you're in Naples!!! I've never been there but my brother in law has a condo there for the Winter..his house in Howard Beach was destroyed by Sandy so he's rebuilding and didn't go to Florida this year... I look forward to your next piece, Mary!!

Mary!
Thank you for giving "Drive By" a wonderful meaning!
Paint on!
Enjoy Florida! Ahhh! Warm sun!
Heavy wet snow in Massachusetts today!
(But I love it!)

I love this photo you took? Would you consider allowing another artist (me) to use this photo to make a painting someday?
