Florida Coast

These pastels were completed en plein air at various locations along Tampa Bay and the Gulf Coast, including Fort De Soto, Honeymoon Island and St. Petersburg.

Inland Florida

These pastels were created from direct observation of the surrounding area in Valrico, Florida where I live. It is a rural area and I enjoy painting the oak trees, fields and rivers. Many of these works were created at Alderman’s Ford Park which is situated at the headwaters of the Alafia River and surrounded by beautiful palms and palmettos with lush vegetation.

Small Works

Most of these small pastels were created en plein air at various locations. I have also been painting some fruits and vegetables, which is a change for me. I find the colors and shapes extremely interesting. The sizes include 8\" x 10\" and under. [nggallery id=5]

Oil Paintings

My oil paintings are also created en plein air. These works have been painted in Florida along the gulf coast and many of my favorate inland locations.
