Come by Citrus County’s Homosassa Library (4100 S Grandmarch Ave, Homosassa, FL) during August and September to see my current exhibition of “Sunshine and Flowers.” Because the exhibition space is smaller than the other space, half will be shown this month – half the next.


Sunshine and Flowers

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.” ~ Joseph Addison

  1. A Young Adult’s Garden of Verses – “While waiting for the library to open each day(June 2015), my teenage son read his books in the shade of the library’s front garden.”
  2. Flowers on the Step – “The strong sunlight glares out the pale greens  but cannot overpower the bursts of red overflowing the steps and windowboxes.”
  3. Tina and the Bog – “Grampy has always believed that children should grow just like wildflowers along the waterside.”
  4. Brown Eyed Susans – “They wanted roses in their flower garden, but I have always been a brown-eyed Susan.”
  5. Plumbago Blue – “Friendly clusters of flowers dancing in the sun inspired by a gentle breeze.”
  6. Corley’s Pineapple Door – “I love the glass in this festive harvest painting in the way the reflections and fruit brighten the archway.”
  7. Star Flower – “Peeking out of the greenery to say ‘Hello’ to the sun”
  8. Ranch Hand’s Cigarette Break – “This is one of my favorites. He enjoys the quiet solitude of his quick break in the field along the fence line he is mending.”
  9. Texas Bluebonnets – “Everything is bigger in Texas, except the lupines.”
  10. The High Side of Grampy’s Canoe – “When Grampy got in, her end of the canoe rose up and she enjoyed learning to fish from him while sitting on the high side.”
  11. Barker’s Dog – “Is this your chair?”
  12. Small Town Tall Spires – “Sharp blues contrasting against the brightly lit white church caused my eyes and thoughts to move upward.”
  13. Bougainvillea Reds – “I wanted to paint this just for the pleasure of looking at them longer.”
  14. Yellow Weeds – “Sun lit up these bright yellow flowers and created a vivid contrast to the approaching storm.”
  15. Home of the Giant Cookie – “Despite their famous fruitcake and their quaint little 10 cent cup of coffee, the cookies at Collin Street Bakery are magnified in my son’s eyes.”

On another celebratory note, I signed an art teaching contract for grades K-6th for the coming school year!

      1. The first day of orientation went very well. I met many of my co-teachers. The art curriculum is called “Meet the Masters” and it looks great! I will introduce stuents to famous artists and some of their works, then teach them art concepts that are represented in the artwork so they can create their own original art. I now have lots of homework immersing myself in the materials. 🙂

      2. Art encourages me to notice beauty around me, and recording those vibrant impressions helps enrich my memories. Thanks for encouraging my teaching with your family memory of your son’s artwork.
