Bonita Springs

The end to a Great Workshop - Happy Holidays

Bonita Springs

After the workshop here in Bonita Springs we headed down the the beach to catch the sunset.

Those of you that know my husband Boon from my workshops  can see that yes he joined us here too. LOL

The perfect sunset

Bonita Springs Workshop 2012

The Bonita Art Center is a lovely art center, it is a wondonderful location with bright sunfilled studios. They offer workshops in all media. In this workshop we worked on a new compostion each day which helpd the students get a better understanding of the tecniqes used.

I find that is best for students to follow along with me step-by-step in using the same comopostion so they get a better understanding of how to apply the tecniques.


In Florida the light seems so much brighter and colors more vivid. I was inspired to paint this beautiful Hibiscus. Hibiscus can be a challenge  due to their large pistol and single flowers. I truly enjoyed playing with these colors.

Sanibel Island

After my workshop at the Villages in FL I went and spent a couple of days on Sanibel and Captiva, small islands off the coast of Florida. It was a wonderful adventure, I went there because I heard so much about the multi color and different shells that are plied on the beaches. I thought this would be a perfect place to relax and get more referance material for paintings.

I was amazed how relaxed all the shorebirds were, you were able to walk right up to them without them flying away. This should give you a good idea of how wonderful the beachs are - perfect for shelling.

The Villages Workshop 2012

My Florida Workshops over the next couple of week will be the last Big Workshops for 2012. I will soon post my 2013 Workshop Schedule.  I am really hoping over the next couple of months that I am finally able to work more on the new DVD's along with "maybe" writing another book. I have so much that I want to share.

Yes this is the Golf Cart Capital of the World - and yes it does feel like an adult Disney Land. These little carts are so much fun and Way too cute.
