Spring Island, 10x8 Original Oil Painting

 I have fond memories of the Pieces of Eight artists' trip to Spring Island, North Carolina. We painted en plein aire on two islands, and one morning we were so inspired by the light that we painted the scene from our porch while still in our pajamas. I hope that, post-pandemic (will there ever be a post-pandemic?) we will be able to go on an artists' retreat again.

Selby Gardens, Pen and Ink Drawing

 My sister and I visited Selby Gardens in Sarasota and were amazed by the Orchid display (see below). It had a circus theme, if you can imagine that. I also love the huge trees with their gnarled roots. I have a thing for roots, but drawing them is like doing a puzzle.
