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.

Fair Oaks Mini Residency - January 5, 2014


Notes From My Residency Journal

Today was my first day back at Fair Oaks since December 15th so I was delighted by everything. I decided to paint in the citrus grove today, as it is near the end of the picking season. The fruit is so pretty on the trees. The tarps are all ready for covering the grove trees. We are expecting a hard freeze shortly. 

 There were several guests for the day so we dined al fresco, enjoying the perfect outdoor day. We were treated to Pearl BBQ, one of my favorite places to eat. 

After lunch I headed out to the fields to explore. I found a new scene I want to investigate. It is one of the scenes I wouldn't notice in summer but in winter it is lovely. I had trouble with my blue golf cart again today. The poor old fellow seems to be slowing down. I need to find him some sort of tonic :-) I'm so fond of that cart. We have had so many adventures together. There are spots and speckles of paint on the floor and all sorts of fine memories for me each time I climb in. I hope it will last. 

Leroy and I headed for home after a fine day in paradise.
