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.

Wrap Up of the Canaveral Seashore Paint Out

Notes From My residency Journal

Happily, the visitor's center at Canaveral National Seashore was packed with patrons tonight. Lots of paintings were sold and I sold two for the week. Thanks to my two collectors who supported me with their purchases. I am very grateful for their support.

The food was lavish. So many tasty tidbits I lost track of them all. A few I remember were clam balls, paella, BBQ chicken and pulled pork sliders, meatballs, chicken wings, sausage and sour kraut, chicken wraps, subs,rare tuna, eggplant, and array of desserts I never got to. There was wine and soft drinks as well. It was a packed house and I'm so happy for the artists who sold well and for the committee. All of their hard work payed off in the end.

It has been an exceptionally nice event and a challenge that everyone met with gusto. Thanks to all of the businesses and sponsors who helped to make it possible. I am grateful to everyone, especially Pat,Dick,Nancy and their crew. I love New Smyrna Beach. It is a unique community. Thanks to my sponsors Donna and Mike for giving me their lovely condo for 8 days.

I'll soon be back at beloved Fair Oaks. I have missed it this month as I've been traveling.

More to come...
