Summer Storm

Oil 6" x 6" unframed
$100 + $10 shipping

I've been painting some large pieces for the gallery in Florida - 30 x 40, 30 x 36- well, large for me anyway. I thought it would be nice to do a small one, so here is Summer Storm. I grew up in Florida and lived there most of my life until the last 5 years or so. Most recently, we lived about an hour from Homosassa - Homer and Sargent both painted there and George Inness - who is a big influence on my work- wintered in Tarpon Springs not far away. My husband kept his boat there, so we explored the backwaters, marshes, and flats in that area for years. For the most part, I rely on memory and imagination when I paint Florida.
