I love to look at the lovely homes in the historic fishing villages of New England. These beautiful old homes carry such a story of life in an old seaport town. This one was particularly special. It had beautiful perennial gardens everywhere. The gardens and the stone walkways were placed with great thought and nurtured lovingly. This house overlooked the water and the boats at dock in the harbor. I'm always drawn back to this place and I imagine the family who lived here waiting for their fisherman to return home.
Coastal Sea Roses is a palette knife done with oils. Imagine the pop of bright pink, lacey sea roses. Their fragrance and delicate look are so captivating. You just have to stop and smell the roses. Impatiens spilling out of an old wooden window box, eating chowder and clam cakes and can you smell that sea air?
This painting is SOLD, but prints and greeting cards are available HERE.
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!
Okay I have to admit it!!
If I see an interesting dirt road I feel compelled to investigate.
Of course if there is a no trespassing sign with a picture of a gun.. I'll move
Seeing a flicker of a bright melon orange colored cottage through the trees
peeked my interest.
It sat next to a thatch roofed gazebo.
Beyond was an area untouched and full of tropical vegetation. Who lives in this interesting cottage?
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.

The Block Party is a palette knife done with oils. Koi ponds and Florida seem to be a great fit. The koi are so friendly and always on the search for a little snack or maybe just a visit. They seem to live in a perpetual party state. When I would go outside to feed my koi they knew it was me and always seemed overjoyed to seem me. That's why I named my painting The Block Party. I always loved a Block Party!
