Marina Marauders

Juanita and I were invited to visit New Smyrna Beach for some new inspiration.  I was entertained by these characters for thirty  minutes at the marina and decided to use these White Ibis as the subject of my next painting.

Pelican Brief

Oil on Canvas

40"W x 30"H

Our good friends generously offered their New Smyrna Beach condo to us again so I returned to the marina to do some more birdwatching.  At the edge of the marina men were cleaning the day's catch and tossing the remains into the water.  Pelicans came swooping in by the dozens for the feast.  A red boat was docked right by the action and the pelicans swimming in and out of the red reflections were fascinating.

Piglet Pleasure

Oil on Canvas

Second Place, 2012 Georgia National Fair

I captured this family portrait of the "Pig of Bayeux" at the local Renaissance Fair in Bayeux, France while I was taking graduate courses in Bayeux. It is one of my favorites since the little piglet with the smile seems to be so full and happy.
