Long Island LandscapesThese are a couple of landscapes done on site at a few places on Long Island. The first one is an oil painting done at Sunken Meadow Park in Kings Park. This spot is behind the beach and boardwalk area and is a beautiful site that many artists frequent. The second was done at Cow Meadow Park in Freeport. There is a bird watcher's elevated platform there that looks over Merrick Bay. Most of the time I go there during the colder months so as not to interfere with the bird watchers. There is quite a bit of garbage near the trail that leads to the platform. This increased after Hurrricane Sandy. I try to look past it but will probably go there with a few bags and try to clean it up. I don't know why no one else has! Despite that it is a spot tailor-made for artists. This painting was done with acrylic used in a watercolor-like manner.
