Stand Tall, Speak Softly oil painting

Stand Tall, Speak Softly

oil on panel
Village Arts Framing and Gallery
What is it in the landscape that makes you pause for a moment and really take notice of your surroundings? A few years ago I was traveling to Melrose, Florida and saw a grove of pine trees with a bulldozer fast approaching to clear the land for a new overpass.  Later that day on my way home the trees were gone.

Stand Tall, Speak Softly is a view of three palm trees that have survived storms and hurricane Matthew and Irma. They have a story to tell if we will only listen, or are they just a passing landscape to you?

This painting and others will be part of my exhibit as featured artist of the month at Village Arts Framing and Gallery in Sawgrass Village in Ponte Vedra Beach. The Gallery is having an open house on Saturday Nov. 3. Hope to see you there.

Village Arts Framing and Gallery, Ponte Vedra Beach Open House November 3

Saturday, November 3, 2018
Open House
1 to 5 pm

Cooler weather is definately in the air here on the east coast of Florida. Brisk temperature always remind me of glorious tree colors of living "up north" in Connecticut and Michigan.

The beautiful hues of a moon rise over a Florida marsh are also a sight to see. Mark your calendars for the full moon in a few days on 24th.

I am honored to be the artist of the month at Village Arts Framing and Gallery in Sawgrass Village in Ponte Vedra Beach during the month of November.  The gallery will be having an Artists' Open House on Saturday, November 3 from 1 to 5 pm. If you are in the area hope you will stop by and say hello.

Pleased to see the gallery's ad in the November issue of OCL  (Old City Life) magazine.  This painting Marsh Moonrise was inspired by the view of Paynes Praire in Gainesville, FL.
