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.

Fish Prairie

Notes From My Residency at Fair Oaks

Fish Prairie is small and only accessible from private lands as far as I can tell. Lucky for me it is rimmed by Fair Oaks.  The staff has carved new trails around the prairie which I enjoy painting so much. It is like being a million miles from civilization but only takes me about five minutes to get to from the Fair Oaks fields. When I was there last week, the colors were wonderful, lots of gray rust,ochre, olive and hints of orange, red and purple. A smorgasboard of yummy color. That will all change in the next few weeks as Spring enters the landscape. By the time I get back from the two paint outs I have in March, Fish prairie and Fair Oaks will be transformed to impossibly bright greens with wildflowers everywhere in the fields. Each season  is a fascinating palette of color, shape and nuance.
