My first painting trip to Florida was in 2002 when I drove down to study with Doug Dawson. It was a good trip, he is a great teacher. Doug got me started layering pastels and I am using daily some of the techniques he taught me.

This time I went with my daughter and we delightfully frittered away the better part of a week watching birds around Everglades National Park...All around. I like these two little 9 x 12" pastels. The top one, Captiva Beach is sold.
