So! I do lots of different art type things. I’ve earned my living, miraculously, as an artist for as long as I can remember. So, this weekend was my hometown art festival in our pretty little downtown. Winter Park, Florida is a charming and lush, bricked street, lake in every square mile…..oak canopied, sun dappled type of town.
I remember my grandad showing his beautiful paintings on the sidewalk there when I was a child, and later my mom showing her paintings in the park across the street.. And now, for many years, I have had the pleasure of being one of the artists who get to “set up shop” with my work. It’s a happy legacy and one filled with friends, music, lifelong memories and wonderful Artists…. And a new tradition of “bowling night” that’s a whole other story…
Thank you Winter Park for your love of artists!! You are a wonderful hometown. XOXOXOOXXO

A still life, or as I like to call it,
Lemons are so good looking, I have always been a big fan of their cute figures. 🙂

A little bunch of flowers that just screamed to be painted one more time… I love fresh flowers on the dining room table so much, that often it can’t make myself throw them away…they look pretty even in their varying stages of… Well….decline?
The colors shift and their shapes change… Still beautiful 🙂
Here is a small oil on canvas 🙂

Today was day four of painting off the dock and I was up and at “em at 7am. Three hours later and I had not one but two crappy paintings! I ended up scraping both of them off. All I was left with was a gooey pile of grey paint. As for the good news, I met a mama duck and her three little ones.
No great finishes today, but the time was well spent.
Ps. I talk aloud to myself out there….
A little embarrassing…
