Now retired and living in The Villages, I have enjoyed art in The Villages, having worked as a Golf Illustrator, I believe I have painted over 80 golf courses across the country. I no longer take commissions, Golden Ocala was my last and some of those paintings are shown here on my Golf page,
I look now to paint pictures that tell a story and not just scenery.
I have done a lot of Plein Air painting since moving to Florida. I painted on site when ever possible when commissioned to do a Golf Course but it is not the same. I think all artist would benefit from trying Plein Air even if it is just a crayon sketch. You will learn to see color, shape and value. More of this later in my Blog page.
