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.

Big Talbot Island Residency- Day 6

Notes From My Residency Journal

Big Talbot is a happy memory now. I am very grateful to North Florida Land Trust for their generous gift to me for two years. They are saving thousands of acres of wetlands for birds,artists,  naturalists, wild animals and recreational boaters and fishermen. Please support your Florida Land Trusts to save what is left of our wild lands.

My favorite places were Big and Little Talbot Islands, Ft Clinch State Park , and the Kingsley Plantation, a national monument. 

I really liked the Marche Burrette restaurant in the Omni Resort for breakfast and the 29 Bistro in Fernandina Beach. 

The views from the back yard at the house were spectacular.  The best time to go the Rebault Club Road is morning, and the best time at Little Talbot Island is late afternoon for the color and light. 

I hope to find a residency in that part of Florida again.
