plein air painting at Boss Oysters in Appalichola, Florida

Apalachicola is the Oyster-town!! It is exciting to gather and get the world’s tastiest oysters at Boss waterfront restaurant, Boss Oyster, located on the beautiful Apalachicola River. I have spent there a beautiful day

Apalachicola ist bekannt für seinen frischen Austern und ist die Austern Stadt in Florida. Restaurants, so auch Boss Oyters, direkt am Apalachicola River laden zu einem Lunch ein.

From Christa’s DPW Gallery:

Living part of the year in Europe (Vienna) and part in the US (Florida) I try to express the beauty that I see around me. I like plein-air painting most. The colors, the atmosphere are exceptional when painting on location. Each painting is a new opportunity to explore and learn and is like a new journey. It is very meditative, a peaceful time, a time of deep concentration. It is also alone time and nothing seems as important as the motive I am focusing on. (click to read more)

Tell us a bit about how you first started painting.
