A few summer's ago, I visited an art museum with a friend and fellow artist, Patricia Gordan.  We had lunch in the beautiful outdoor area. It felt like we were in a garden. I took lots of photos that day as I always do. I recently looked through my photos of warmer summery scenes and found a few that inspired this painting.  This is called "Ladies Lunching".

Last week during a major snowstorm I decided to escape from all the cold and snow. I went into my studio and cranked up the heating stove and turned on some great music. I had a mini vacation in my imagination listening to Jimmy Buffett and Bob Marley,  while I kept painting away. I took myself to a beach in Naples, Florida where I saw this cute little girl playing in the sand. Here is the result of my afternoon's work.
