80 degrees and it's 2 days before Christmas!  Oh the bliss of getting outside without a half dozen layers of clothing!!!

I've had a drawing accepted for the Flor500.  Artwork of native Florida plants by artists living in Florida.  My little drawing is of the Sweet Pinxter Azalea.  
I have some native azaleas just outside my front door, here in Florida, which I've never seen in bloom.  The 2 native azaleas I had in Virgina were moved to a friends garden, but did not live after the first bloom.  At least I have photos of them.

These are some of the Montype prints I made this spring. Except the triptych, which is Drypoint.

 All, but the triptych, are 5x7 inches.

This triptych was fun to create but awful to try to wipe and print.

I have to stop the details thing.

An image from the C & O Canal

Sorry for the very bad shot, but I just wanted this and the others up on the Blog.  This image won Best in Show, at the St. Augustine Art Association's Miniature show in May 2014.

Some of these are similar to the images I showed, and sold, at Artomatic 2012. They come out different very time, which, of course, is why they are Monotypes. 

if you are interested in purchasing any of these prints, please contact me at my email,  Each print is $500, framed or unframed.

I'm nearing the final push.  And I'm really pushing it.  Working on drypoints, want to do more aquatints, and painting big with acylics.  Every time I work with acylics, I am reminded of why I love oil!
January is ending, and my Bellehaven Marina monotype will soon be coming out of the current show at the Art League Gallery.  Next month is the Patron's Show, the Art Leagues fabulous fund, and fun, raiser.  If I have time, and $, I will try to put in a couple of prints.  I will definite have a piece in the Leagues' "Student Show" at the end of Feb. 
After a quick trip to StA, I will be posting everything I've finished.
