Our show at the Florida State College of Jacksonville, at the Deerwood Campus is a beautiful display of our skills and talents. The staff at FSCJ did a wonderful job of displaying our work in this great well-lit venue. However, sorry to say, the opening reception was not well attended, possibly due to the stormy weather. 
The winner of the People's Choice Award was Betsey Hogan for 'Ocher Field'.  Wonderful news --There was one sale during the reception. That was 'Forest Floor' by Richard Lundgren. Congratulations Betsey and Richard! 
I hope you all get a chance to view the show before it closes on December 9.

A beautiful October morning

How lucky we were this past Saturday for our first plein air event of the season. We had a wonderful October morning to paint at Alpine Groves Park.

We didn't have a large turnout, but we were happy to be joined by a few members of the First Coast Plein Air Painters. 

Any of our members who enjoy plein air but can't always  make our events should look into the FCPAP. They schedule many plein air events all over the Jacksonville area on a regular basis.

We already have quite a few FCPS members who are FCPAP members as well.

Alpine Groves  offers so many painting options.

Although the views of the St. Johns River are particularly stunning. 

 And lots of places to set up to catch interesting views of the river.

I didn't get to see all the paintings but here are a few from this morning in, as usual, various stages of completion. I hope all those who made it enjoyed their morning.
