Lake Jessup Conservation Area


Occasionally on my way to the studio I pull off the road and do a painting of the landscape. One Saturday morning in February I drove over the Lake Jessup bridge and decided to do a painting at the Lake Jessup Conservation Area. This is an area that is flooded during heavy rains as part of the St. John's River ecosystem.

Winter Park Paint Out April 28‐May 2

I will be one of twenty‐five artists
that will gather throughout the city of Winter Park, FL to paint plein air during the first annual Winter Park Paint Out.
Plein air is a French term that means in the open air, referring to the fact that the artists will be painting exclusively out of doors. Artists have five days to complete their works during this event. All submitted paintings will be available for purchase with proceeds benefiting the Albin Polasek Museum & Sculpture Gardens and the artists.
