Palms 9x12

An impasto painting done plein air of palms on an old Florida ranch.

Live Oak 9x12

This Oak is in the neighborhood where I grew up. I spent many happy hours climbing in it.

The Buena Vista Inn 10x8

This is an old fashioned motel in New Smyrna Beach,Florida. It sits by the Mosquito Lagoon not far from the ocean. You can sit outside at night and look at the stars.

Twilight 8x10

This painting was also done at Sebastian Inlet. With the gathering dusk, the colors became muted and quiet, but the water still shone with it's lovely ocean blue.

The Birds 9x12

A humorous painting reminiscent of the Hitchcock movie where the birds go rogue. I also found it amusing to paint the tailgate and chainlink fence, not your usual subject matter.

Seeking Shelter 9x12

Storms were moving through the day I was painting at the inlet. But a beam of light caught the sandbar created by the inflow of ocean water, making for a dramatic scene.
