Come Fly With Me

Living in South Florida gives me lots of material to paint. The tropical environment provides us with vivid colors and beautiful images. Having always lived in a state (or country) with the water nearby, the beach has always been a big influence on my works. What can be more beautiful in South Florida than the beach? How about the Everglades! Many of you are familiar with great artists that have been able to capture its beauty. Lately, I have had the urge to paint this wonderful "sea of grass". The plans right now are to do a series that would show the bird life, the plants, the alligators and the beautiful Florida skies.

This piece is the first in the series. Artists can be temperamental so I am hoping to complete the series before something else captures my attention. Let's see what I feel like doing next week.


  1. can't wait to see this painting in person!

  2. Wow, Rosie!
    Just remember, you are allowed to work on other themes outside of a series....
    Some artists skip around between themes. Before you know it, you have series!

    Looking forward to more of the Everglades! Great title, too!

  3. Debra, you may see this at the gallery in the future.

    Angeline, I know I can work on other things, but if I don't do it now "while in the mood", it may never happen. You know how that is!!

    Thank you both for the comments,
