This past year I've been so busy with the new gallery (going great!)and now the return of Bob's cancer, I haven't posted in ages, but will try, at least post a few new paintings. Here's some from some plein air events this spring. Breakfast at Sarabeth's was from the Studios of Key West Quick Art Draw Art Crawl, won honorable mention and Tennessee Williams House was for the Tennessee Williams 100th Birthday Celebration Plein Air Contest, won second place.

I've been busy for a good reason. I will be opening a new gallery, Frangipani Gallery in November. I purchased the space at 1102A Duval, right next to SoDu Gallery, in the heart of the South Duval arts district. Renovations are taking place now - there's nothing like fresh paint!

January is here again and it's time for my annual show of new paintings. Please join me at SoDu Gallery Saturday January 30 6-9 pm for an evening of food, friends and fun. Here are my favorites from the show.
"I've Got Your Back," the painting of two pearly nautilus shells was inspired by the two shells I bought several years ago while shopping with my friend Katherine in Virginia Highlands, Atlanta. I said I would paint them one day and I did this summer. Done in one long(and painful) sitting, the paint was flowing just right as the layers of the shells grew and grew.
"Callas" is a bit shell like in form. I loved the colors of turquoise fading into creamy yellow.
