Red Navels

Hadn't tried a red navel orange til I bought some at the Farmers Market in Panama City, Fl.
So then I painted one...

American Beach

A haven when beaches were segregated on Amelia Island, American Beach was established for African Americans and became a very popular destination. Today it's a mix of giant new McMansions and the homes built in the 30's. I started this sitting on the dunes and finished it at home from memory and photos.

Wind and Radishes

I wanted to paint the radishes one more time (even though I still don't have any Titanium White) so I set them up on the picnic table where we are camping at Fort Clinch. We are right on the beach and the winds were relentless yesterday. My poor bunch wilted before my very eyes! Such are the problems we painters from direct observation encounter!

Where's the Titanium?

When I got out my paints after being away from the motor home for a month, I panicked as there was no Titanium White. I then remembered taking that large tube home with me... Now what? I used Naples Yellow Light and am relieved I was able to get the painting done! A big bunch of radishes from the farmers market this morning in Fernandina Beach. No stopping me now!

I'm thrilled!


Sidewalk was painted looking out a window down at the patterns and shapes that were formed by the sidewalk, green spaces and the patterns that were formed as the light cast shadows on those spaces.

I entered it into an Art League of Rhode Island Regional Juried exhibition titled Opposites and it was accepted! The show runs from January 28th- March 19th 2016 at the ALRI/VETS Gallery in Providence RI. The curator Dominic Molon is Curator of contemporary art at the museum of Rhode Island School of Design.

I'm thrilled to be part of this exhibition!
