Environmental Learning Center in Vero Beach, Florida


March 6, 2016

It was a really great day at The Environmental Learning Center.
I chose an area around the pond where the children
were catching things in their nets. 
They kept coming over now and then to check on the progress of my painting.
They thought I was awesome.  It was fun getting all those complements
from grateful little children.
One of the boys said "I WANT TO BUY THAT PAINTING"
I told him to go and tell his mom and if she wanted to come and speak with me
about the purchase that we could come up with a deal.
I let the young man buy the painting for $ 20.00. lol. 
The canvas cost $ 10.00 but the boys excitement was PRICELESS. 
Just got an email from them.  He is so happy.  I told him I was
excited for him because he was getting an original Peni Baker.  lol.
I signed it in front of him but 
the really cool thing was I told him to go grab a net
and get into the water with the other kids and I would paint him
into the painting.
He is the one in the green shirt.

So Cool!!!!!!!!!!!!

Christmas Mini's 2015

Hi Everyone!
It's that exciting time of year again when my entire art club
paints their little mini's for our art club fundraiser.  They are wonderful little Christmas tree ornaments or a beautiful painting for your wall.
100% of the proceeds will be going to our local ecumenical food pantry.
This year I painted 12.  A sale and reception will be held at
1245 main St. Sebastian, Florida on November 19, 2015 from 3:00 to 5:00.
I would love to have my friends and neighbors stop by for this pleasant event.
I'm not sure how much
they are going for this year.
Probably $ 10.00 to $ 12.00 each  A bit more for the bigger ones.
Various sizes range from 2" x 4" - 4" x 4" -  3" x 5"
They were so much fun to do.
They are all beautifully backed with a gold or silver glitter paper backing.
And delightful gold or silver chain or beaded hangers as shown in my first picture.

over the internet the price will be $ 25.00 plus approximately $ 5.40 for shipping.

"There Is Always a Lot To Do When You Are an Artist"

So I try to keep it very simple.

And fun.

I have a beautiful painting that I have been working on for a while.
It's almost finished but not quite.
I try very hard to match a painting up to it's perfect frame.
I have a special frame shop I go to in Palm Bay Florida.
Ridley's Custom Frame Shop
2280 Harris Ave NE
Palm Bay, FL 32905
Here are three short videos of my find here at
this great custom framing shop.

The frame shop and my friend and fellow artist Kathleen Richter


Mr. Ridley giving me great news.


My new frame and running into

world renown artist Fritz Van Eden

It was definitely a success for me today at Ridley's
and come again.

"Christmas Mini Paintings for 2014"


I had so much fun painting my 10 tiny paintings to be used for Christmas tree ornaments.   100% of the proceeds go to our Ecumenical Food Pantry in Fellsmere. 

Because of our heartfelt work quite a few people will have full tummies this year. 

This is a project I intend to participate in every year.

So get you order in early for next year.

It is a very enjoyable project.

  They are 4" x 4"  and 3" x 5" acrylic on canvas panels.

Backings and ribbon loops are added when completed.

They turned out so well. 

I'll take photos Saturday morning at the art show

where the tree will be standing

and filled with little Christmas Mini's.

A Wonderful Peaceful Thing To Do

Sondra's Jacaranda Flowers

There was a wonderful women at my art club who had a long term illness
of breast cancer.
She was there learning to paint in one of the clubs painting classes.
Sadly, she was unable to finished this beautiful painting she had started.
After she passed away her husband asked if someone in
the art club might finish it.
A few artist worked on it and found it too emotionally difficult to work on so . . .
when they asked if I would like to give it a try, I said "sure".
I enjoyed doing it so much.  I think it is so beautiful.
Her husband Ed told me that I could use it
in my art portfolio.
The original has Sondra's signature on it but this one doesn't

See at Fine Art America. Com

This blog is about a very special painting.

As some of you know, I had the opportunity to spend a little time
in the Tallahassee area in May of 2011.
While I was driving around in the town where our brother Joey lived,
I came upon a little shack of a cottage in the woods.
It is located right there on main street where you get off of Interstate 10
going into Joey's little town of Loyd, Florida.
For some reason I was completely taken with this little falling down shack.
I went back to it three times in two trips to Tallahassee
and took photos each time.
I suppose it was my way of having a little piece of my brother Joey
without having to go back to his house again.
I did go to Joey's house once during that visit to Tallahassee.
After Betti and Tim asked me to go back again and try to find our
sister n law, I found it too painful for me to return.
So instead I drove around looking for very old houses to photograph.
And of course to find a few more memories of some of my times
spent with Joey in Lloyd before he died.
This one really struck me. Like I said, I went back three times
for photographs
Well . . .Some of you know that I currently spend a great deal
of my time painting pictures.
This little shack was a Must to paint and because it took me a very long time to complete I am so anxious and proud, I could go no longer without sharing my story with all of you.
I have received so much personal enjoyment in painting this shack.
I hope that you all can enjoy it a little as well.
To me it will always be this little shack I stumbled across while looking for memories of my time spent with my brother Joey.
This is just a part of the painting.  One of the very pretty parts.

See the entire painting 

type in Peni Baker and click search.

It's fun,  you can see my artwork and even order a fabulous print
