Florida Panther


I recently painted this Florida panther in watercolor as a gift . Other sketches I did of the only living species of large cats in the Eastern US were auctioned to The Nature Conservancy, to help  preserve and expand their territory. A female panther was recently sighted north of their present range, so there is hope for this endangered species which is Federally protected.



“Surprise” is an oil painting on linen 12″ x 36″ created as a private commission where the  purchaser wanted me inspired by a scene from the movie, “Master and Commander: Far Side of the World”. I brought together a photo I took from a sunset sail in Key West and photos I  had taken of the H.M.S. Rose under sail In Milford Harbor, CT.  The H.M.S. Rose, a recreation vessel, was transformed into the H.M. S. Surprise for the film. Prints of this are available in our web store in the Maritme section.
