Because I paint from life and because I live in a place I love it is no surprise that my subjects for my paintings are what is all around me! I have always been awed and uplifted by nature. I go to preserved areas to find nature such as State Parks, National Parks, Wildlife Refuges, and more to find my inspiration. Here is a painting of a cypress tree swamp inspired by the amazing Six Mile Cypress Slough, Ft. Myers, FL
