GFAA Gallery Abstracts Exhibit

When I walked into the reception at the Gainesville Fine Arts Association Gallery, I was taken with the color of the artwork. The gallery’s walls displayed bright, vibrant and colorful art. I was attending the reception because my wood art was part of the gallery exhibit of “Abstracts.” The majority of the work was done […]

The Mediterranean Sea from Barcelona’s Shoreline

The Mediterranean Sea was the first sea I knew about as a child.

Snowy Egret

Beautiful birds at low tide

Low tide provided a real gathering of birds. First a Reddish Egret captured a shrimp for supper. Second an Ibis flew by. They have curved orange beaks for routing in the bottom of the lake for their supper. Third, a Spoonbill (my favorite) awoke and started thinking about supper. Spoonbills have beautiful pink feathers. Their […]
