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

Surprise

“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.

2015 Holiday Card

Peas 2015 XMas

My official sick Holiday card for this year has arrived. It is a continuation of my Christmisscommunications Series. The back of the card (on left) was inspired by the SF novel” Make Room! Make Room!” by Harry Harrison made into the film, “Soylent Green ” in 1973 and the pun was suggested for this card by by my wife, Janny Wurts.
