Great time at Canaveral Seashore Paint Out :)

This was a really fun event! 26 plain air painters all making art and raising money for programs for the Canaveral National Seashore.

A great cause and a beautiful national treasure!

And we enjoyed perfect October weather 🙂

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

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 🙂
