The Richmond

8"x6"

oil on linen panel

This is a wonderful old art deco hotel that my wife and I stayed at when we were in South Beach Miami the other month. It was great, the hotel backed up to the beach, so it only took a couple minutes to get from hotel to the beach.

Back from Break




Well, I just returned from a very wonderful vacation in beautiful south Florida and a great 7 day Caribbean cruise. It was so nice to be in such nice weather -- got healthy doses of vitamin D...maybe a little bit too much! I also learned that one of my paintings was sold at the Randy Higbee 6 Inch Squared show! I sure wish that I could have attended the reception, but maybe I'll make an effort and drive down to see the show before it closes. But now, back to painting!
