Plein Air 18x24 Acrylic Peach & Beach Park - Gary Garrett Painting demo - Our First Coast Plein Air Painter's June 6, 2009 paint out was at the new Peach & Beach Park (geo:lat=30.278771701381338 geo:lon=-81.55258655548095) alongside Anders Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida. This is the road that I walked and bicycled to Windy Hill Elementary School in the late 1950s. 
I used to catch minnows, tadpoles and frogs in this lake as a child, and now it's a PARK! WOW! Today is wet with the possibility of more rain, so I am painting under the first pavilion at the park. It was just Rebekkah and I from our group today, but this is a 2-day paint out, so we may have more painters here tomorrow. The park is beautiful, a cool breeze, no bugs, simply a wonderful day to paint.
