Cumulus Crescendo East Gate

oil on canvas
48" x 36'
On October 11th I delivered my painting Cumulus Crescendo East Gate to be hung over the clubhouse fireplace at the Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. 

I'm honored that the painting was chosen by the members in the Arts and Sounds Event to be placed on exhibit over the fireplace for several months.

After it's exhibit it will be available for purchase for your home or office. 

The painting was inspired by the view as you enter the club's East Gate. 
Love painting the subtle shifts of color in cloudscapes and creating cloud drama and peaceful scenes we so often enjoy in the Florida sky.

Whispered Nocturne

Standing on the beach looking at the Atlantic ocean from a Florida shore you'll feel an amazing quiet that envelopes you. The sun setting in the west lightly paints the faintest colors in eastern sky.
The noise of the day fades and there is just the whispered night.
Whispered Nocturne is part of atmospheric abstracts that I have been pursuing in my new studio.

You are invited to The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach's Celebrate Art 2017 to see this Whispered NocturneEventide and In Stillness.  And art by 30 other amazingly talented artists.

Eventide is one of my three paintings accepted into The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach's juried member art show.  The opening reception for the exhibit is Thursday, January 12, 2017 from 6 to 8 pm. The Celebrate Arts 2017 Exhibition runs through February 18th.

I'm truly honored that juror Steve Williams from the Florida Mining Gallery chose my work for the exhibit.

2016 has been eventful and for some a stressful year.  Eventide, In Stillness and Twilight Nocturne are atmospheric abstract paintings of peace and comfort.

Often at dawn or twilight I walk the beach and those moments of calm and peace are reflected in these paintings. If you attend the exhibit, I hope you'll send me a note and let me know if they resonate with you.
