Bear Side, mountain landscape

"Bear Side"

This was fun to paint because of the thick paint and texture created with a palette knife. The scene continues on the sides, so framing is optional.

Water Daze, sunset reflections

"Water Daze"

Just finished this last week. It took a while to figure out, but I wanted to capture that daydream feeling you get when you stare at the light dancing on the water. I took a bunch of pictures while we were fishing on Lake Okeechobee. The sun went behind the clouds and peeked through here and there. It was cold and windy, but beautiful.


The painting continues on the sides, so framing is optional.

First Time For Everthing, foal running

"First Time for Everything"



Got great pictures of this new colt running around the paddock his first time out. He had a hard time getting here, and his mother almost didn't make it. One of the foal's legs came through the rectum and the other got hung up backwards.  The mare could not move around very well after being sown back together. They were kept in a stall until she could walk some.  

When he took off bucking and running around, she would call him back each time.  He would catch his breath and then take off again! It was way too cool to watch. He lives next door to me.

I was mostly interested in the backlighting and how it set him off.  The dust kicking up was also something I wanted to try to capture.  I exaggerated the background and moved things around to create more contrast because the sunset blurred so much of it out.  I think it is one of best works!

Make a Wish, landscape with white horse

"Make a Wish"


This is just one of the wonderful scenes along Arbuckle Creek, near Sebring, Florida. I have painted many pieces from my photos of this area.


I added the white horse as a tribute to my mother, who always told me to "Quick make a wish on that white horse!"


I hid an opsprey flying out of the tree, and an anhinga sits on a limb in the water.

White Ibis with Lilies, wildlife art

"White Ibis with Lilies"

Painted from photos I took at White City Park last year. Quite a challenge to paint the negative spaces and leave the ibis. I get into a slow and methodical state of mind when working in watercolors, totally opposite of acrylics.

Art Show




Had a rough start, spilled coffee all over my shirt first thing in the morning, before the show began. Can you believe that I didn't even think to bring an extra one? Will have to add that to my list for next year......


Anyway, I went in the bathroom to take off the outer shirt thinking I would leave my white tank shirt on that I had underneath..... But the worst of the coffee was on the undershirt. So I took off both shirts and rinsed as much of the stains out as I could, and wore the cold and wet shirt (on my right side) that you see in the picture above. Then I hung the white tank-top shirt up in my car.


I did have a jacket I wore for a little while. Thank Goodness I wasn't set up out in the cold windy morning!


How embarrassing!


The rest of the day went well, and I even won a ribbon. It is not a first place, or is it? It is called The Parrish award, in honor of Grady Parrish, who selected an artist each year for environmental awareness in their art. It came with a nice cash prize as well, so I was happy!


Back to the studio!

Fall's Splendor, landscape with deer and eagles

"Fall's Splendor"

Acrylic on canvas

12 x 16 inches


Painted this scene from plein air studies (done on location) and pictures I took a few years ago. I added the deer from memory, and the eagles as well. Really enjoyed creating all the warm colors contrasting with the cool gray and blue hues.
