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

An interview about my life as an artist in Central Florida

The nicest gal came by the studio a few weeks back and recorded an oral history about my experiences as an artist living in Central Florida, for the Orlando Library Memory Project.
Thank you Jane Tracy!! Xoxox

Ps. Note to self, don’t say “you know”
so much… Or “like” 🙂

Fantastic weekend aboard the Mountain Song at Sea! 12 of us went to play and listen to dozens of bluegrass bands play on the ocean blue! It was magic and crazy fun! Here’s a small painting done while soaking in the sun and watching a horseshoe toss!!

Fun to be had painting at the Canerval Seashore Paint Out 🙂
Here’s a few pics from Thursday, when hurricane Sandy was barreling by. Gusts up to 40mph and tons of rain. And we painted thru it all! Very exciting!

Who doesn’t love to travel?? I know I do! I enjoy capturing a new place in oil paint as often as possible. Sometimes it’s just sitting on the porch of a beautiful old b&b, like the Bluff Inn in the River Arts District in Chattanooga. We were dropping off artwork to our gallery there, River Gallery and I took a few hours to try out some new Ulrecht oils on small 5×7 boards. Yummy
Have a great day!!
