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.

My Week long Residency at Fair Oaks February 20-27, 2012

Notes From My Residency Journal

I'm off to Fair Oaks for a week of painting. Unfortunately, Mary Jane won't be able to come this time. I am taking a box full of painting panels from 5x7 to 9x12 inches. I am also bringing a 20x24 and 18x24 canvas to work on in the thoughtfully provided studio upstairs in the old house. My plan is to spend mornings out in the fields painting, mid day up in the studio and back out to the fields in late afternoon when the light is wonderful. In the evening, I'll enjoy a walk around the field. There is no TV, a good thing, as I will spend some time reading. On Saturday I will head over to Prairie Creek Lodge, not far from Fair Oaks, for an exhibition and sale of the paintings from the group project Six Artists Six Prairies. I'm looking forward to a wonderful, very focused week at my favorite residency. I'll share it all with you when I get back.
