High Surf Advisory


High Surf Advisory
10x10 oil on panel

I know my friends up north are dealing with a monster snow storm this weekend and feel no sympathy whatsoever for us Floridians at the moment, but with temps down here in the 40's we are suffering in our own way! Much too windy and cold to go outside,  I had to make do with some porch-plein air painting this morning. Rough life, I know.

Loved the sparkle on that water!

Nocturne painting done at the Ft. Desoto Pier in St. Pete during Jason Sacran's workshop last week. We were awakened at 3am later that night to the tornado warning alarms going off on our cell phones. Quite an intense storm, fortunately there was no damage where we were. But now you now the story behind the title!

Learned so much from Jason Sacran's workshop this past weekend, will be absorbing and processing  his wisdom and techniques for the foreseeable future!

A favorite scene of mine at the Cortez Fishing Village... drawn to the water reflections and composition of these particular boats.
