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.

Canaveral Seashore Paint Out

Bird Island Light

Notes From My Residency Journal

On Saturday I'm off to the Canaveral Seashore Paint Out and will be comfortable in a cozy condo, provided by sponsors Mike Hull and Donna Gentile-Orlando, FL. Unlike my other residencies, my time will not be my own so I won't be doing any research on the area, but I'll be going back in January for a real residency, so I'll have a lot more information for you about that part of natural Florida.

Paint Outs are all about promotion and sales, so it is a very different atmosphere than the thoughtful, careful paintings I would do for a residency. I am with a large group of painters and promoters for this event and the purpose is to make money for Canaveral National Seashore with our sales. We do a number of paintings during the week and sell them at the Gala event for visitors.

I'll have a report when I return.
