Excited to be the newest board member of The Islamorada Foundation! The Foundation’s first project to improve green space in Islamorada was to lease Southwinds Park, MM 82 oceanside, beside Blu Bamboo. About a year into the lease, the Foundation has installed a state of the art sprinkler system to get the grass and newly planted greens growing, and installed electric throughout the Park. We’re having our first event there on October 20. The Islamorada Foundation’s SHRIMP BOIL tickets are available at Backcountry Cowboy Outfitters, Islamorada Mercantile & Mangrove Mike’s.
Can’t wait to share some awesome stories, and new paintings. What a beautiful island- it’s land, ocean and it’s people. We traveled about 74oo miles, first across the US from South Florida to LA, then across the Pacific Ocean from LA to Fiji. Truly a blessing. As the Fiji Airways captain said on the plane: “Taking off at 1015p Fiji time at 197 mph, we crossed the Meridian, Equator and Tropic of Cancer, all in 9 hours 45 minutes at 38,000 feet above sea level going 600mph. Carrying 386 tons, 418 passengers and 15 crew about 5000 miles across the Pacific Ocean… from the stars of the southern skies to the land of the star spangled banner.” Awesome.
Look out for more photo’s, stories, and new paintings, coming soon.
Parrotfish and Angelfish are so exciting to see while in the water! They have so much color- right up my art alley. Hope you enjoy this new painting as much as I enjoyed painting it! It is all watercolors, in the background I used salt to get that textured, water look. Fun fact about parrotfish: they create a shield around their bodies at night to hide while they sleep. The shield keeps their scent inside and prevents predators from detecting them!
This snook and two porkfish is a watercolor painting, 14″x22″. Inspired by the porkfish I saw snorkeling last weekend in Key West, and by the snook always hanging out at one of my favorite reefs in the Upper Keys! The original is sold, but prints on canvas are available at http://
