Underwater in St Croix

It is that time of year when we run away to the West Indies and I get inspired spending hours looking down into the amazing underwater world floating on the surface of the transparent Caribbean Sea...The Barracuda are lurking , the Flounder is floating and the Sea Fans, Coral and shells abound...30x40" oil on canvas.....available at the "Top Hat Gallery" in St Croix! One of many...

The French Chair , Hat, Geraniums and Tangerines

A winter day in the studio , all is well . The chair was brought back from France by my friend's cousin. I bought it because I knew I wanted to paint it. The horse carved in the back of the chair was what got me. Well actually the whole chair got me. Then the tangerines up against the blue striped cloth...just add sun hat and geraniums and I was totally gone, in love...There is something so simple about the "Still Life"... Perhaps it is just because it is so "still" ? 30x30" oil on canvas
