"Old Florida" Original Oil Painting, Daily Painter, Landscape Painting,

 I painted this a few years ago, while on a winter vacation in Florida.  The scene seems to bring to life my  impression of "Old Florida".  Before Mickey, back when the state was more "Down Upon the Suwannee River" and glass bottom boats.

It was painted plein air, on the banks of the Indian River, which is part of Florida's intra-coastal waterway.

It consists of two 24x48" canvases and the scene is compiled from many photos and memories.

Thank you for viewing today.

I have run from the snowy mountains, to the beaches of Florida.  Lucky me, I can walk on the beach, and work at the same time.

 I photoed this guy, during my morning walk and painted soon after.

The birds are so conditioned to people, they barely move when you approach.  In the morning, it is all business, as they are looking for food.

We are enjoying our Florida winter on the beach.  Being a snowbird is a good thing!

Abstract Sailboat Painting, Small Oil Painting, Coastal Wall Decor, Beach House Wall Decor, Nautical Scene, Palette Knife Painting

 I have been inspired by sailboats that I view on the Intracoastal Waterway, here in Florida.  They seem so calming and graceful as they move through the water.  


Both of these paintings are available at my website listed below.

Have a great day!

A Little Mountain Church, Daily Painting, Small Oil Painting, Landscape Oil Painting, SOLD


This is one of the many, small, white, churches, found in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  They all have their own charm, and I love driving around in search of them.


The beauty of the red tree, was an added bonus to my find, but, this is a charming scene, anytime of the year.  It pays to have your cell phone with you!

Have a great day!

Red Pepper Still Life, Small Oil Painting, Daily Painting, Kitchen Art, Home Wall Decor SOLD


I find I have missed painting still life, so it has been fun catching up on it over the last week.

If I could just stop sleeping, I would have an additional 5 or 6 hours a day to paint.

Maybe then I would have enough time to paint both my still life and my landscapes.....but what about the abstract/mixed media  I also want to try?  Maybe I better work on growing another set of arms instead!

Life is hard when you're retired!!
