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.

Talbot Island Wrap Up

Renault Club Tree
9x12 inches
Oil on canvas

This morning dawned bright and clear on the marshes before a lovely bacon,sausage and homefries breakfast prepared by my host Bonnie. We enjoyed our coffee on the deck facing the marshes, as they turned from orange to gold and finally to green. We scurried around straightening up the house and parted with fondness for a happy adventure we will remember. I look forward to returning next October.

I headed out and got lost, naturally, heading in the wrong direction for about 20 minutes. I finally got turned around heading west. I made it back to my loft studio I'm happy to write. 

The highlights of my residency were many:

The lovely and comfortable Big Talbot House and grounds, my painting studio on the porch.
My wonderful sponsors, North Florida Land Trust
The beautiful marshes and wetlands
The extraordinary trees
Renault Club Road
Amelia,Little Talbot, and Big Talbot Islands
Simpson Creek
Dead Tree Beach and the park
The kind and helpful park rangers
Nicole's Restaurant
Marche Burrette Restaurant
Sliders Restaurant

I had a splendid time! Thanks to all who welcomed me so kindly.
