Seagrapes Plein Air Painting - 2019 Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival

Sea grape trees are everywhere in Jupiter, Florida, but at The Nature Conservancy Blowing Rocks Preserve, they've grown together into a picturesque tunnel and sea wall that you can walk through all along the beach. 

While the tunnel is amazing, the colors and variety in the leaves themselves are also beautiful. I decided to focus in on the details rather than the entire scene. Kimberly posted a great photo of the path on our Saunders Fine Arts Facebook page.

This painting is available today at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, Florida.

Blowing Rocks Plein Air Painting - 2019 Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival

Our favorite spot in all of Jupiter, Florida.

This path through the Blowing Rocks Conservation Area is such a tranquil place. Patrick Saunders loves the palm and sea grape trees, the cool breezes, and especially the way the sun filters through the canopy and creates dramatic shadow patterns.

Our thanks to 2019 Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival judge Jeff Markowsky for giving this painting 3rd Place Friday evening.

U Tiki Beach Plein Air Painting - 2019 Lighthouse ArtCenter Plein Air Festival

When in Jupiter, Florida, you can take your yacht to your favorite beachside bar and grill.

A bit more whimsical than Patrick Saunders usually works, this painting is as much a reaction to the atmosphere of the scene as it is the light, colors and shadows. 

Available tonight at the Lighthouse ArtCenter VIP Collector's Party.
