With so many miles of undisturbed natural Florida coastline, most travelers along the shore find their view is drawn immediately to the ocean vista, the breakers, and the windswept palms; as many seagulls drift by, lazily riding on the warm gentle sea breeze.


This region of coastal Florida has attracted artists forever... and is home to many artist groups and communities. The area is a wildlife artist’s dream: to paint in secluded exotic and pristine ecosystems teeming with tropical flora and fauna... and is my new challenge for a series of larger studio paintings… as we are just upriver from where the famous Florida Highwaymen lived and painted in a style sometimes referred to as the Indian River School.
