Meeting with my plein air group...always an adventure. Where will we go this week? Ah! A perfect spot. This wonderful place with its European atmosphere...stunning marina views and high rise living. There's shopping at your fingertips with everything imaginable from art galleries and boutiques to scrumptuous dining...OH and yes, the best little coffee shop ever. Sitting outside and listening to the music and sipping coffee after that delightful meal. Does it get any better?

My inspiration for this painting is a tribute to our beloved Affenpinscher, Mia, who took her journey home recently. My painting is of a peaceful, sunny day boating through the islands of palms and mangroves and returning home. Can you feel the serenity?
This acrylic is chunky paint with a palette knife. Tropical Dreams is a delicious assortment of hues of corals, yellows and purples. The colors in this painting make it sing! Makes me feel like belting out a tune!
This blue hydrangea was a special gift from a grateful daughter to her mother. It symbolizes heartfelt emotion. The hydrangea was first discovered in Japan and developed during the Victorian Era. Woody stems and lacey star-shaped flowers are packed closely into a pom pom shape. Coming in a rainbow of colors, It truly does possess grace and beauty.
I found this little pink cottage tucked away next to the water. This, I thought, would be a wonderful place to paint. With it's lovely charm and surroundings it would be a great environment to keep those creative juices flowing. However, its present owners felt the same way I felt...oh well...I'll have to find another little cottage tucked in the woods.
Here I am capturing a sunset over the untouched Everglades in Florida. This dreamy place...the sky and the water...spectacular with it's complimentary colors of orange and blue. Another miracle, a haven for so much wildlife...we have to preserve this gift.
