Poncho and Lefty Hit the Forgotten Coast

Two weeks ago I loaded my car with all the painting gear a had plus an Aussie artist I had never met and headed to the Forgotten Coast Invitational Paint out for a little adventure.

Ed Cahill, a fellow plein air painter and Georgia introduced me to the Australian via Munich plein air painter Leon Holmes. Leon needed a ride to the coast and I had a big SUV and itch for adventure. Australians are know to fit that bill well. It was nothing short of an adventure.

Up before the sun everyday and home after dark... painting with the best in the country. What more could a painter want. Images of my paintings to come, but here are a few of the highlights along the way.

Leon gets credit for all of the pictures of me.

Hot Spot

Painted this the morning we found the bulldozed boats... I couldn't paint there, so I drove up the road to find a better view.

We make a mess wherever we go.

Leon gets a great picture of my mustache
