It’s rare to get free publicity, at least for me it is, but one of my paintings will be in the next issue, July/August, of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine. (not on newsstands yet)

The magazine is one of those well done, high quality, shiny art magazines that is aimed at collectors.

My painting is part of a photo essay on painting in parks, which is something I love to do.  One of my favorite parks is a local one, Jonathan Dickinson State Park and the painting is one of several I’ve done of the Loxahatchee River. You’ve seen it here before, but here it is again:

You can see other paintings that are part of the Painting the Parks program on the Fine Art Gallery page.

Also here is the link to the website for Painting the Parks, so that you can see other park paintings.

Mr. and Mrs. Toad – a watercolor and ink study for the frog book that I’m eternally working on.

I’ve been working at building a portfolio and have added new pages to separate the illustration type work from the fine art type work. At least now you can see all the images in galleries now. It wasn’t until very recently that I realized I could do that with my blog. It seems I learn something new every minute.
