Boca Range Light

Boca Range Light, 14x17" oil

Catching Up!

With a recent group show at the Hughes Gallery, Boca Grande, FL and eight portrait commissions,
I've neglected my blog.  Still busy painting with several area plein air groups and also teaching a pastel class at Ringling EAC.  And have a new puppy!!!  So please excuse my long neglected blog, at least all excuses are good ones.

My painting, Boca Range Light will be auctioned for the Barrier Island Parks Society's fund for education and restoration.   The following history is from the BIPS webpage:

Built in New Jersey, 1881 and placed in Delaware, then decommissioned in 1918.  1927 was reassembled and installed on Gasparilla Island.  Tower was painted white and lit on January 1, 1932.

The tower is 105 feet tall and still stands as an active navigation aid.
