Wildlife Refuge, Oil Painting Florida Landscape


This is a scene from the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, a very diverse spot to visit.
It has trails, marshes, and the Cape Canaveral Seashore. This marsh is on the
Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, a popular spot for birders.

Shirley Temple Goes to the Royal Wedding, Papier Mache Doll


I saw a paper mâché doll on a children's craft site and I was inspired to make one of my own. A toilet paper roll and a styrofoam ball are the basis for this. I found the hair and the fascinator in a craft supply store. When I was done, the name popped into my head.

Venice Parking, Oil on Canvas


Since I'm still recovering and have yet to open the oil paints, I am reaching way back to the past for this one. This was one of the best trips of my life, with my sister to Venice. I was surprised at how beautifully upholstered the gondolas were.
