Kingspoint Park, the beach side
Yesterday, I decided to paint the beach side of the Kingston Point Park. Didn't realize how beachy it is. People were sunbathing and a few were in the water. Sat under my umbrella which is something I normally don't do and it was actually pleasant. Think the place was great and it beats travelling to the Jersey shore for a day in the sun. Can't wait to restart another painting of the tree and a catamaran. Learned a lesson yesterday, even being a multi tasker can't talk on the phone while trying to paint a sail or anyhing else. Think I am turning into that crazy obsessed phone slave persona who can't put the phone down nor turn it off.
I haven't picked a place for next Wednesday yet but aiming for a more local venue, in Orange county. It has to offer a lot of shade since it will be hot and maybe near or on water. Any suggestions?
