Vanishing Point”” is a studio version of a plein air piece I did while passing thru St Marks Florida. The levees in the marshes at the wildlife preserve go for miles and offer much wildlife and natural beauty to enjoy. I had a 10 foot gator visit me the day I was there. Yikes! I never saw him until a passerby pointed him out. He had climbed up on the beach behind me.
“Apple of My Eye” is something or someone you cherish. I just love our local waterways and our clouds. This depicts the Choctawhatchee Bay close to LaGrange Bayou. Oh… did you see the apple? It looks like you could pick it right off the canvas and eat it. Yum! Acrylic on cradled board. 12×12 framed Current Location: Emerald Coast Theatre Company, art show during the run of the play “Almost Maine”. Come enjoy… Read More
This wonderful fishing boat docks at the mouth of Mallet Bayou in Freeport, Florida. I have sailed past it many times and admired the well kept condition and beautiful color of this boat.

Here are the two paintings I completed this weekend for the One Size Fits All show that will be held at the Bayou Arts Center, Santa Rosa Beach, FL. I still need to mount them on the 10×10 panels that are required for the show. One is of a local saltwater marsh and the other is a boat house on the bayou in my backyard.

This is “After The Rain”. The afternoon rain has just passed. The sun is starting to peak out making the grass bright green in contrast to the dark clouds. The image on the left is where I started with this painting, laying out the basic colors. I like the violet clouds. I might do another one with violet. Oh, the color possibilities are endless. It is so hard to choose. I… Read More
This 24×8 inch board has been staring at me for several months now. Finally, it has blossomed into “Palmotion – It’s a Rhythm Thang!”. Yep, odd name I will explain. When I look at the painting, first my eye is drawn to the right side with the water and close up palm. Then my eyes goes all the way over to the left side, but quickly wants to return to the right.

This was my first landscape painting. I created it August 2013 for the One Size Fits All art show in Santa Rosa Beach. It is 10×10 on a board panel. I struggled with clouds, trees and water, painting 4 or five renditions of this image until I had something I liked. I learned a lot doing this painting. It currently resides with a friend who has become one of my collectors.

Sunrise on the Bayou. A friend told me she did like not this painting because it was not realistic. The clouds were actually that color. I have the photos to prove it. Current Location: Sold
