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.

Our Next Residency

Notes From my Residency Journal

We will soon be on our way to New Smyrna Beach for a week's residency thanks to our generous host Louann Hall. We will be using her beach house for the week of January 9-14, 2012. What a great way to start the new year with a week in my favorite beach town. Mary Jane and I will be painting around town in various locations. I love to paint the waves down on Flagler Avenue under the pavilion, stopping to have breakfast at the Beacon Restaurant. We will explore the National Seashore as well and a place she likes to go. I will spend a fair amount of time painting at Spruce Creek and at JB's Fish Camp too. I'm looking forward to our time there and I expect we will visit with friends who live there as well. I am really looking forward to this opportunity. I'll be posting photos and stories from our adventure so stay tuned.
