Fall is Right Around the Corner
Summer has gone by in a blur this year. I must say I really enjoyed the extra time in my private painting studio. My production was very consistent and I completed an average of two serious paintings a week as well as quite a few small studies. I spent the summer studying fields and grasses, most enjoyable.
It will soon be time for my annual Hot Dog Party at my loft studio, September 28th, 2013, from 11 AM - 4 PM. Stop by the studio for a good hot dog and view my paintings of fields and the Fall Season.
I'll be off to Big Talbot Island for my residency sponsored by North Florida Land Trust October 7 - 13 and I'm very excited to explore this lovely island.
You can find my Art Toons now at Fine Art America.
Notes From My Studios
I am fortunate to have two studios. My painting studio is located near Lacrosse Florida. It is an old concrete block building behind my old mobile home. I have lived there for a good long time, since the 70's on and off with short stints in other cities around the south. I came back home in the 80's and have lived here since. It is my parents home, both now gone over the rainbow bridge, and happily together again. I share the old place with my sister and my dog Henry. The current studio was once my daddy's workshop. It makes me happy to be there and think of him. It has no frills. Concrete block floors, a supply room, a frame closet and utility room. It is perfect as a painting studio and I can do large format paintings there in oils. it is also the studio I use to do my furniture paintings.
My second studio is a cozy loft space inside Paddiwhack Gallery at 4122 NW 16th BLVD in Gainesville, FL. It is smaller but better looking and it holds my framed work. I teach there once a month and teach an occasional workshop as well. I do acrylic and oil paintings at the Loft Studio. I hope you will visit this studio soon. I'm there Wednesday - Saturday unless I am off on a painting residency.
I'll be posting musings from these studios from time to time.
