Missing Florida

"Waterfront View"
5x7  Oil on Canvas Panel

I lived in Florida (both Tampa & St. Augustine) for several years.  I find myself missing it very much.   Missing the more laid back life or maybe it wasn't the laid back life but the ability to escape at any moment by simply looking out my window and see the beautiful waters and sky.  Immediate stress relieve without medicine or alcohol.  Although a drink in hand was always nice.

When to stop?

"First Cast"
6x12 Oil on Linen Panel
My heart beat a little faster when I thought about putting another brushstroke on this painting.  My brain tells me I could put 1, 10 or 40 more strokes on this piece but would it say anything more than what is already said?   This is the question for every artist...Am I done yet?
