View from St. Pete Pier

8x16 oil on canvas

My husband and I made a visit to the St. Pete Pier before they tear it down.  I painted from a photo.  I find such pleasure doing scenes with many spots of color.   I used brushes and palette knives on this one.  I enjoyed working on canvas.  Dick Blick, which fortunately for me is in my city, is having a big sale.  I'm looking forward to getting more canvas.  I haven't made up my mind if I am going to try and stretch my own canvas yet.  I invite any info on your preferences.
