Destin Sunset -- SOLD

Florida's Emerald Coast

The name does have a lovely ring, doesn't it?

I guess I am dreaming of the beach.  I haven't made it there yet this year.  Too many busy projects to take time to relax.  Soon, I hope.

16" x 20" oil on canvas board, unframed.

Daddy's Girl -- SOLD

"Daddy's Girl"

Captured at a 4th of July parade.  These two were having a grand time.  Kids are this small for such a short time.  It was wonderful to see them sharing this day.

The Way to Mytilene

The Way to Mytilene, Greece

I have been thinking for some time that I should try a Virtual Paint-Out.  Somewhere between a studio painting and Plein air painting lies the Virtual Paint-out.  Like going on vacation, but free.  Google Maps Street-view is such a fun app.  I use it all the time to check out places I'm thinking of going on vacation (or just dreaming about going on vacation).  Bill Guffey started doing the Virtual Paint-out a few years ago already and I think it's a wonderful idea.  Plein air without bugs or heat or rain.  What a great idea!

This month's location is Greece.  Here is the Google location I chose:,26.566105,3a,75y,308.4h,89.91t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sFVUZ2lcjQMGYjlRmt2Zdhw!2e0
