Welcome to My Project!

I was born and raised in Florida. After many years of travel, attending plein air paint outs, I discovered that residencies are the best way to explore the natural world I love. Working for an extended period from seven to ten days really enhances my painting experience. I am lucky to have friends and collectors who make it possible to explore the exciting and interesting locations I love to paint. Supporters provide their unoccupied vacation homes or hotel lodging for my residencies throughout the year. I am always delighted to leave an original framed painting for them as my thanks for their generous gift. If you would like to sponsor a residency, I would love to hear from you.

A "Mini" Residency

Today, Mary Jane and I headed for my favorite place, Fair Oaks, to check out the fall glory. The cypress trees are turning a dark orange and rust now and other hardwoods are turning a rainbow of fall colors. From now through March, Florida offers it's most beautiful climate and that is why we suffer through the brutal summers as full time residents. It is worth the wait. We spent our morning exploring the fields and taking photos. We stopped for lunch at Pearl Country Store in Micanopy for some excellent BBQ chicken, collard greens and beans. Then we were back to Fair Oaks to do a study of the dry pond area. It was a splendid adventure and we ended it by cruising along looking at Tuscawilla Prairie on our way back to the city. Our week long residency at Fair Oaks will be the last week in February, so the color will be winter gray,wheat, blue and purple by then.
