Florida Boardwalk, Watercolour, 10x12

My appreciation goes out to all those who build and maintain the boardwalks that allow me to wander the boggy trails of Florida. In New York, my house was near an entrance to the Adirondack Trail. There were boardwalks in places there also, as I am sure there are everywhere throughout our parks. Thank you, people and agencies, that give us natural spaces!

Victoria Drive Palms, 11x14, Watercolour

Victoria Drive is lined with beautiful Victorian Florida houses and palm trees along the Gulf of Mexico. It is still a pot-holed, dirt road, which luckily keeps it from being heavily trafficked, and so a good spot to set up an easel.
Victoria Drive Palms, 11x14 inches, 140 lb Arches, Watercolour, Matted. $150

I was struck by this tree at the curve of a path in the woods. The tree seemed to be pointing the way and had a majestic presence.

Tree By North Tampa Bay - Watercolor, 8x10, Framed $150

I painted this tree in Phillipe Park, Safety Harbor, Fl. I loved the shape and colors of these two trees -- so strong and feminine. This painting is one of my personal favorites.

House in Heritage Woods

I have returned from visiting my home town of Phoenix, Arizona for the holidays. It has been nine years since I last went back, and I wonder if I will wait another decade to see my family again .... I was there for about 10 days, my daughters, Rita and Zoe, joined me for the last three. Overall a good trip,but with some moments of angst and sadness about the way we have drifted -- or have always been -- so separate from each other.
Anyway I did some paintings there of the desert and mountains which I found beautiful again. And I will post them here once I get them photographed.
This painting, however, is a small watercolor I did in the fall of a house in Heritage Village. I like the way the house peeks through the dense palmettos and trees, and the simplicity of its lines. Matted and Framed $150.
