Surfspray, 24x18 Original Oil Seascape

I really enjoy painting waves with a lot of action. I always loved reading seafaring tales when I was a kid. As an adult, I have only been on ships twice, and both were in storms with waves much bigger this. There is nothing romantic about seasickness. I am quite content seeing the beauty of the surf from the beach.

Dragonfly, 6x8.75 Original Watercolor Painting

You can't say I don't do a variety of artworks. This is watercolor on a paper that is very textured and fun to paint on. I got it at Derek Gores Rocky Water Mercantile on Highland Avenue in Eau Gallie, where you can find art supplies and a wide assortment of unusual items.

Heart of the Zinnia, 12x12 Oil Painting

The centers of Zinnias are so interesting. I grew some beautiful Zinnias this year, and after many distractions, interruptions, and the holidays, I finally got this painting finished.

Snowy Farm, oil painting


This was the scene one morning at our daughter's home in Pennsylvania. There's nothing like morning light and long shadows.

Are YOU Talking to ME?


This one is for my daughter, who is raising chickens. They are egg layers and pets. Their coop has a chandelier especially for chicken coops.

The Golden Flute

 Here's one from the archives. This lovely woman taught at Juilliard, and when she attended our Pen Women meetings she would treat us to a concert. Pen Women is a National organization of writers, artists, and musicians, chock full of talented women.

Outer Bands, 14x11 Original Oil Painting on Canvas

 We were on the Pineda Causeway, crossing the Indian River, when we saw this. It looked the same in every direction. Hurricane Idalia was raging on the western side of the state, and we got this. We were very lucky once again. Other parts of Florida were not so fortunate.

Near the Falls, Original Oil on Canvas, 8x10

There is nothing like painting while sitting on a rock by a stream with the peaceful sound of the water trickling by. A few yards downstream this becomes a surprisingly big waterfall.
