Morning Shimmer

Morning Shimmer, 8x10in, oil on panel, framed, $600, © 2012 David Boyd, Jr.
A couple of weeks ago I was in St. Simons Island, GA for an invitational paint out.... my first. I was nervous, but confident in my skills. I had been painting out quite a bit and had become very comfortable with my palette. Upon arrival, I was immediately struck by the beautiful shadow cast by this huge palm tree. The boring light was great, but it came and went... mostly went. I made sure I got a good cell phone image while the sun was out in case I didn't see it again! t knocked this little gem out before 10AM and felt good about my day.

This piece is framed and available at Glynn Arts.


  1. i'm always so impressed in the way you break up edges. it's so subtly done that i never notice it at first, but becomes apparent after a few seconds.
