Not only is my life changing, but I am jus realizing that I must really downsize,

Wow, downsizing is difficult.  Garage Sales, Moving Sales and now I am realizing I need to get rid of a lot of my framed and unframed paintings.  The unframed paintings are from 10" x 12" and up to 16" x 20".  The Framed Paintings are 16" x 20" and UP.  Mostly originals and some Prints.

Anyone interested, please contact me, 772-361-9626, or email,  and arrange to have a showing of the works of art that are available.  

Right now in THE ARTIST NOOK TEACHING GALLERY,  43 SE Kindred St, Stuart, FL 34994 there will be about 20 painting.   You can stop in anytime and look.  Every Thursday and Friday morning from 9 AM to 12:30 I will be there teaching.   Or call me 772-361-9626 and I can meet you.


HARBOR BAY PLAZA, Sewells Point, Stuart, Florida. They will be there January and February.

March and April were very busy months for me. But I'll try and catch up a little.

This is what I have been busy with:  My Student Teacher Art Show, Elliott Mueseum Preview Show for the Open Studio Tour, Martin Artisians Guild Open Studio Tour,  Down the Hall Show at the Elliott and my painting going into the Elliott Gift Shop as well as the Heathcote Botanical Gardens Gift Shop and to top it all off, I have 5 paintings in the the Fort Pierce Admin Building.  Plus, teaching 5 half days a week at the Artist Nook and my Home Studio in Port St. Lucie.

Now that most of the Snowbirds have return to the North, I should be 

able to keep up with my blog. 

We had a Student/Teacher Art Show at the Trinity Methodist Church in Jensen Beach in March.

Jane sold this painting. 

Nancy sold one of hers, about this size of 

blue flowers (no photo, sorry) 

I try to have a Student/Teacher show every year

but  Covid got in the way.  Next year we will 

probably have the show again at the Trinity 

Methodist Church in Jensen Beach in March.

Last Thursday's Watercolor Class at The Artist Nook. We are working with wet into wet techniques. This is the hardest of all the techniques to learn. You have to work fast.

Diane Meiers Beautiful wet into wet sky, water and sand.  Nice Job.
Diane's beautiful wet into wet backgrund.
Nancy Bacheller Very nice! Where's the detail? (Nancy is an accomplished detail artist) Tune in next week and see if she added some detail.  Perhaps some larger trees in the front?
Joan O'Mally (Almost not a beginner anymore) Absolutely wonderful!
Holly Theuns (beginner) Could be feather dusters or Traingle Palms.  Nice Job and you are certainly using lots of color.  Love them. 
Ann Rafe (beginner) Ann this is a really good start.  Can't wait to see how you finish it.
Ute Schwartz (beginner) This is Great I love it. One of your Best Ute 
Holly trying to decide what to do with the second one.  She's working on the Majic Mat. You put 

your painting under this plastic and use a china marker to see what you want to do.

Sally's Demo last Thursday  (using vivid colors) Sally
