Floral III

This was one of my star paintings at the Artists Market show at the Leepa Rattner Museum in Tarpon Spriungs last weekend - Oct. 13 and 14. It got a lot of interest and I told a few people it would be up on my website so they could look at it later.  Unfortunately I couldn't get it to post until today for some reason. This fairly large painting is a lively still life of lilies in shades of pinks and golds.  Looks especially good in the wide gold fame I showed it in. FLORAL III, Acrylic, 16x12", $325, add $100 for the frame.

Storm Approaching, Oil, 11x14 - This is one of the original paintings I sold on Saturday Oct. 20, during Studio Waltz in Dunedin, FL.  Unfortunately I don't have photos of the other two originals I sold- or at least I can't find them on my computer right now.  I also sold several matted prints and handmade cards during the day.  The weather was beautiful - in the low 80s with a fresh breeze all day - I had a great time!! As I have for the past few years, I was set up by the lake in front of Blake White and Carol Sackman's amazing Mozaic House - studio #9 on the Open Studio tour.  So I got to paint en plein air in between talking to all the visitors.  A wonderful day!

Great Publicity for Plein Air

Recently I was contacted by a reporter for the Tampa Bay Times who wanted to do a piece about plein air  painters in the area. After a few conversations, she came out one day while our group, West Coast Plein Air - Florida, was painting at Orange Lake in downtown New Port Richey. Click on the link below to see a great newspaper article about it.  (Unfortunately, I haven't yet been able to figure out how to post the actual article here without all kinds of ads and other extra bits.)
