Artist-in-Residence: Painting and social distancing

This week I was scheduled to be one of the invited artists for the Santa Fe Springs Plein Air Paintout.  Like so many other events, the Paintout was canceled. And so I have decided that I am not just social distancing, as has been ordered by the Governor of Florida, but I am now an […]

Acrylic Grand Canyon Sunset

Grand Canyon art in watercolor and acrylics

Purple Gallinule at Sweetwater Wetlands Park

Quest for the purple gallinule
