Key West Rooster

6 x 6 Oil on masonite

One of the many roosters and chickens that roam the neighborhoods and streets of Key West. I will surely miss their crowing. They are very entertaining and comical, but proud.

Bike Sketch

8 x 8 Oil on masonite

This is a fast sketch I did as an exercise. I hope to do a more finished one eventually.

Tidal Flats

8 x 10 Oil on canvas

This is from a photo taken on a sailboat. The colors from all the different water depths, some shallow with sand or grass, really created these stripes. The greens and blues were of every shade. I think I will try a larger painting making the transitions a bit softer.

Mangrove and Sky

10 x 10 Oil on Raymar canvas

I am so excited that I actually finished my first painting here in Key West. I was very happy I was able to find the time and actually get it done. As time went on, it was getting daunting to think about setting everything up, but now I am looking forward to doing another soon. I am very inspired by my surroundings.
