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.

Notes From My Residency Journal

I'm packed up and ready for my residency in New Smyrna Beach/ Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge Monday- Saturday, next week. I look forward to this residency so much. I thank my sponsor Louann Hall for her generosity! This will be my third year. I share this residency with my pal Mary Jane Volkmann. We love it ! Louann's house is a cozy vintage Florida house on a quiet street in the historic district. Mary Jane and I like to take walks around the neighborhood late in the day before supper. 

We spend a lot of our week exploring the wildlife refuge. Weather permitting we will get some Plein air work done too. The birding is spectacular in January. I'll be posting each day. The house has no internet connection so I may have to do all of my posts when I return, unless I can find Wi-Fi.
