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 paint in this park now and then with my friend Tim. He is a terrific person and a fine painter. We enjoy the time to talk shop as we seldom have time together. It is a relaxed morning and we do one painting before we go our separate ways, he to picnic with his wife and I to head for my studio right down the road. The park is only about 3 miles from my painting studio. 

I've been painting this champion live oak for many years and it challenges me every time. It is so massive that I have difficulty fitting it into a small format. It screams for a large surface. I did a studio painting of it once in 30x36 inch format and it was pretty accurate. I do love the challenge of painting it.

A fun day painting with a friend always hits the spot!
