Xoxo from the Florida Keys


Nice show!!


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


Just a little sunshine


A little moment from the dock.
Have a lovely sunny day XOXOXO

Just so durn pretty!


Did you know that Constable, the amazing painter, called the act of painting outdoors “skying”
They say he was like a weather man, that he studied and understood the sky better than anyone. He did paint some amazing clouds!!
Skying, I love that term.



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” 🙂

Orlando Memory Project



Hello hello!
Not so much time on the dock this week. I found myself on a new tangent painting birds.
At this moment I am heading to do a show in St. Louis, and part of my booth will have these birds. And a huge piece called Reasons to become an Artist. With a collage of 40 paintings under a giant graphic….
ANyhoo, have a great day!
Paint or do what ever it is that makes you happy. Xoxo


Da dock


Mmmmmmmm, sometimes if you are not drawing it, or painting it, you just have to soak in it.
I heard great painter Clyde Aspevig
Say you should really get to know your subject. Sometimes observing it can be just as important as painting it
Sounds good to me!!
Have a great weekend!
