Camp Holly, 11x14 Original Florida Oil Painting

I took this photo from an airboat as we were returning from an excursion on the St. Johns River. It is an attraction for people hoping to see alligators, but this is not the season. We saw only one. Camp Holly is a popular spot, and has been since 1923! Can you imagine how wild it was around here back then? 

Painting this was like putting a puzzle together, and by the time I was done I felt I had been back there for a long stay.

Portrait of Hap, 1980s Graphite Drawing


One thing I am most thankful for at Thanksgiving is my husband Hap, the best husband a woman could have. This drawing was done in the 80s, while listening to What's Love Got to Do With It, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, and Billy Jean. 

Those were the days. (sigh)

Portrait of Leigh

What with being out of town and then dealing with results of the hurricane, I haven't had time to finish my recent painting, so I am pulling this from the archives. It's a graphite portrait I did years ago, and one of my favorites.
