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 and Oak Hammock Mini Residencies- June 16

Notes From My Residency Journal

I spent my morning upstairs in the Fair Oaks Studio. It is wonderful to walk in the studio and see your paints laid out in order with your brushes, waiting patiently to begin the day's work. I always leave the studio as clean and orderly as I can. It is a very special place for me. I have spent so many happy hours there. I look forward to it each week during the summer.

Lunch was served at noon, marvelous chicken Alfredo with a stew of okra, tomatoes and onions. We had an experimental cake made with Guava that was good, but not Guavy enough. I will try again with a different recipe. 

I left early today to teach with my mentor group of painters. We are meeting for the next  five months at the Oak Hammock art room, a nifty studio. We were welcomed like royalty with a beautiful fruit and cheese tray and other goodies. We spent the afternoon enjoying good camaraderie and painting magic, followed by a lovely meal in the private dining room. I am so spoiled! I could get used to that treatment very quickly.

I forgot to take photos this week but we all had a swell time.
