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.

Painting After the Residency



Notes From My Residency

Now the real work begins, back in my studio from reference photos. Now I can work in my comfort zone, using all of the photos I took at various sites for a week. I will use the notes and research I did for each of the sites visited. I think of the actual residency as a research project, doing most of the painting after the trip in my studio. I did manage to finish eight paintings in St Augustine and nearby sites. Now I will do some larger format paintings as well as studies about the project in the months to come.
