The Lovely Loleita and I had a wonderful time at the St Augustine Art Association Spring Members Exhibit Friday night. My painting 'Diva Shades' won an Honorable Mention Award so she had a good time too.
Thank you Jeff Shonkwiler and 1st Thursdays @ Orlando Museum of Art for putting on another wonderful Exhibit. These shows are always so much fun, and the artwork continues to inspire me to keep growing. My painting 'Summer Breeze' had a great spot and got to meet everyone as they entered the gallery. Congratulations to Cheryl Bogdanowitsch for winning Best in Show for her 'Heron'.
My painting of 'Sparkle' got a wonderful reception yesterday at The Art League of Daytona Beach exhibit 'All Creatures Great And Small'. She won 2nd place and was having a blast with all the other "Creatures" hanging out on the walls.
We loved visiting with all the talented artists and seeing their work.
Congratulations go out to Katty Smith for winning Best in Show for her lovely sculpture 'The Human Plight'. Beverley Ulrich received the 1st place award for her painting 'The Conversation'. Diana Mier Patterson received 3rd place for her painting'A Mother's Love'. Congratulations to all the other award winners as well.
I just finished this short 45 second video showing my latest painting of this sunglass wearing Diva. See video closeups of this 3 dimensional kinetic painting.
Just finished this painting on 4 sheets of 32"x24" plexiglass. We may never see my Diva's eyes, but just imagine how beautiful they must be.
Last night was diffidently girls night out at 1st Thursdays @ Orlando Museum of Art. My painting of Marilyn Monroe had a blast with all the girls during this "Power of She" Exhibit.
I just love these Exhibits at Orlando Museum of Art. It's so much fun visiting and partying with all these artists.

I just finished this short 1 min video showing my latest painting of this elegant sun worshiper. See video closeups of this 3 dimensional kinetic painting.
Bogenvillas have always captured my attention since the first time I noticed them adorning the courtyards and shops on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. They seem a fitting backdrop for my elegant sun worshiper as the smell of coconut oil wafts through the salty breeze coming off the ocean.
Here is a short 1 min video showing the before and after of the painting I originally did in 1985 as a tribute to Andy Warhol's Marilyn series. An old painting becomes new again 34 years later! 'Andy Warhol's Marilyn - Dotted!'
I decided to update my 1985 painting of Marilyn Monroe. I attached two 24"x32" sheets of plexiglass to the old 36"x36" painting and added thousands of dots. The old painting served as a useful underpainting for my updated painting.
