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.

Wonderful Chalk Show

Chalk show at the Indian River Mall

Parking lot.
It was a wonderful show and I was really
impressed with the good art from the elementary school 
students.  There were many good child artist.
One in particular.   Alicia age 7.  Unbelievable.  
I just loved her work.

                                                    Having never seen chalk art up close and live
I really enjoyed the professionals

"Evening at the Sebastian River Front"

"Evening at the Sebastian River Front"

This is a 5" x 7" acrylic on canvas board that I painted
as I sat out at the picnic table under a pavilion with a couple of friends.
It was actually daylight but I really enjoyed doing a night scene with a moon.

And would you please be so kind as to leave a comment, if you wish.

"Florida Blue"

I don't usually fall in love right away with my paintings.  It usually takes a while.
But this one takes the cake.
I have a lot of detail to accomplish in this painting before I am finished with it but
I sure do love it already.
I hope you enjoy it half as much as I do.
