Interior Florida and Georgia
These paintings were done in plein air in oils with a strong sense of color and texture. I love the experience of working in nature. Changing light, bugs and weather are all challenges but also give me a sense of urgency and spontaneity.

Pastel Drawings
These pastels were done en plein air, on location at some very beautiful places. Pastels give me an opportunity to work in a more delicate hand, as well as using a different kind of mark-making and layering of pure color.

Black and White Drawings
Working in black and white is an enjoyable experience for me; the challenge is to still express a sense of color while exploiting the medium's innate starkness.

St. Marks Wildlife Refuge
What can I say about St. Marks? It has the been the place I have delighted in painting at the most since moving to Tallahassee in 1987. It has been a refuge for me as well as the multitude of critters who inhabit this gorgeous wetland.

Encaustics
Encaustic, an ancient technique employing wax and pigment was used by the Greeks to decorate their ships and for funeral portraits. Mine are of landscapes, and sometimes animals.
