"The Sun Will Come" Juno Beach, Lighthouse Art Center, oil painting by Robin Weiss

"The Sun Will Come" 9x14 oil  SOLD

I had been trying for a few years to get into the Lighthouse Art Center, Palm Beach Plein Air painting competition and made the cut this year in 2017. It worked out very well for Ann and I to go and spend some time visiting with her sister Nancy and husband Lowell. They graciously offered their "truck" (Cadillac SUV) for our use to drive down to Palm Beach.

The first night after registration Devin Roberts and I looked around and found a spot to try a nocturne. Mine was a disaster so I packed up early and got some sleep before heading out early for Juno Beach. The weather was supposed to get better as the week progressed but the day started out cloudy with sun breaks and strong wind . I managed to get the beach painting above from under the Juno Beach Pier where there was some shelter from the elements.

The first day we arrived I did the little 6x8 warm up below to get the ball
 rolling and was glad I did when the competition got started!

Nice job capturing a sense of place, Robin.

Thanks Mary! The weather didn't cooperate on the first day but shaped up nicely for the rest of the week!
