Enlightened, A Florida Coastal Oil Landscape by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

I passed by this same location several weeks ago, and the boat was still pulled up onto the shoreline, just where I had painted it earlier. A thunderstorm had passed, typical of Florida summer afternoons. Sunlight was breaking through the clouds. I love this scene of light and shadow which is repeated over and over during the summer months. Now this 16 x 20 original oil painting is headed to an event in Central Florida.

Osprey Over the St. John's River, A Small Plein Air Florida OIl Landscape by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

Watching the osprey circle overhead, I was mesmerized. The large bird spotted fish in the tannic brown waters of the St. John's River and got them. Bright green aquatic plants lined the side of the river next to mangroves, cypress and grasses. I had my easel on a houseboat in the middle of the river with a great view. A great way to paint plein air, capturing part of the pristine wilderness! 5"H x 7"W Price: $ 75.00

St. John's River, Small Florida Oil Painting of Osprey, Fisherman and River by Judy Batterson, Florida Artist

With my easel set up on a houseboat deck in the middle of the St. John's River, I painted the wilderness around me. One lone fisherman floated by, looking for a catch. And so was the osprey that circled overhead. Cypress trees, mangroves, aquatic plants and gators were part of the river scene in Florida's pristine wilderness. 5x7" original oil, $75.
