Surfside Weekend Sale

I have four 6″ canvas paintings that I’ve posted on etsy this weekend.  Each piece has a ocean spray, tropical winds, and palm tree silhouettes.  There are a few little crystal embellishments in each piece in the ocean spray area.  These were completed in 2013.  Sale will run throughout this weekend.  Click the pic to see them in the shop!

Surf Report 1 & 2

I’ve lived 4 years on Florida’s space coast, 12 years in the Florida panhandle, 1 year in the Jax Beach area, and now 10 years here in Central Florida.  That’s bound to cause a few hurricanes to fly overhead right?  Right!  So that is one reason you have been seeing some windy palms blow out of the studio.  The other is sort of a flashback to what I was doing when I first started selling my first pieces online.  They were all ACEO art cards, but they were all simple silhouette night landscapes.  Several have asked if I would ever make those into large paintings…and I’m finally revisiting that idea starting only adding some different elements to it.

Charity Art Auction

Auction is now live on eBay!  100% of the proceeds to go to the Emerald Coast Wildlife Refuge of Destin, FL.

As I mention in the auction this little baby seagull is lovin’ his clean beach.  Titled “With Love” because my little bird is with a hanging heart, but also because “With Love” from you to the organization, the proceeds will help with the oil spill clean up effort.  I chose this organization because, while I currently reside in the central FL area, I am from the Emerald Coast area of Northwest Florida (Niceville to be exact).  Reports from family and friends are the oil is just now starting to hit the shoreline this week 😦

If you are unable to bid at this time, you can still help by blogging, tweeting, facebooking etc. the auction listing.
