Christmas Tradition

Going to the beach on Christmas day. We may not have snow, but I wouldn't trade this for snow any Christmas Day.

Sunset On The Roof

I've always enjoyed being up high above things. When I build my dream house, it will be on stilts. This particular sunset from our rooftop was spectacular.

The "alpenglow" on the plants to the east of the roof was dramatic.

Driftwood art is like sailing. Something given to you freely turns into energy which in turn moves you forward.

Art Trail Studio Tour

The Vero Beach Art Club Art Trails studio tour was a huge success at my studio. I'm assuming every studio had the same experience. We had lots of visitors and amazing comments. I've placed photos of the studio all decked out for the day. This post wouldn't be complete without a heartfelt thanks to my five Artcateers who helped me pull this all together: Donna, Marie, Linda, Anita and Becca You gals rock! And thanks to my son, Tom, too, for his help and cooperation.

Art Trail

Art Trail is an artists' studio tour in Vero Beach, Florida presented by the Vero Beach Art Club. The proceeds benefit the scholarship fund. The date is Saturday, December 13, 2008.

I have the privilege of being one of the 10 artists this year. My only regret is that I won't be able to see the studios of the other 9 artists. Tickets can be purchased from me and from the Art Club at the Vero Beach Museum. For more information, click here.

This is also a great opportunity to pick up unusual and creative gifts for Christmas.

Art Story Of The Week

"Trixie And Bubba Frolic"

Trixie and Bubba always frolicked and played on the bright summer day. The islands were full of wonderment and everyday some small new thing was discovered.

Trixie likes bugs.

Art Story of the Week

"In The Soup With Jeter Wayne"

Jeter Wayne always swims like he is going somewhere important. Don't ask him where he's heading though, or you'll be in for an hour long talk about some extraordinary lighthouse where the feast is bountiful and the fishermen are stupid.

Late Night In The Studio

Do You Bamboo Workshop At Heathcote Botanical Gardens in Fort Pierce, Florida

Sue picks out a paint color.

Colleen finishes one of her masterpieces.

Cecilia and Aidan collaborate.

Anita Prentice touches up a piece of "pvc bamboo".

Fellow artist and business partner Anita Prentice and I held a workshop at Heathcote Botanical Gardens. Participants painted pvc pipe as part of an art installation in the bamboo garden. Photos of the installation will follow soon. This workshop was a great opportunity to study color, to dismiss fears about creativity and making mistakes and to be a part of a larger art installation.

Walking The Old Bridge versus The Snake Lady

These are two pieces I created for the featured artist exhibit at The Gallery in Beaufort, SC. The first, "Walking The Old Bridge", is more structured and planned. The second piece, "Snake Lady Gets the Big Banana", is more spontaneous, coming directly from the myriad of paper pieces on the work table. Hands down, more people liked the structured piece. In fact it was probably the most popular of 17 pieces. I personally like the innocent spontaneity of the Snake Lady and the fact that she got the Banana. ? What makes us like one thing better than another? Personal aesthetics? ?
