I love showing at this Fort Lauderdale treasure. "Purple Lotus" and "Purple Lip Orchid" are showing at the Bonnet House Museum and Gardens' Welcome Center. This sacred lotus is the national flower of India symbolizing life, ever-renewing youth, eternity, purity and divinity. The "Purple Lip Orchid" is so delicate, fragrant and simply lovely. Both are 8"x10" on metal ready to hang or put on a table easel.
If interested, visit or contact Bonnet House directly: 900 N Birch Rd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304, 954-563-5393 or feel free to contact me and I'll do it for your and make the arrangement to pick up.
"Blazing Sunset" and "Pa hay okee Sunset" have been selected for the Business for the Arts of Broward 2021 Art & Soul Annual Exhibit. Show runs online from May 1 - 31.
Blazing Sunset: The sky lit-up as if on fire this late fall night of freezing temperatures and bone-chilling winds at the highest elevation in Great Smoky Mountains National Park and in Tennessee, Clingmans Dome at 6,643 feet.
Pa-hay-okee Sunset: Photographed in Everglades National Park on a cool and windy early spring evening. Pa-hay-okee is Seminole for grassy river. It bought me such peace to experienc this sunset.

Honored to be among the 22 artists whose works were juried into this important exhibition at ArtServe spotlights our changing environment caused by human destruction.
My piece "Disappearing Hemlock" was photographed during my Artist in Residency at Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I was so taken with the golden sun rays passing through the forest mixing with the warm scents of fall, allspice, cinnamon, and lemon. Later I learned that this beauty belies the massive destruction all around. Forests throughout the Smokies are undergoing a major ecological shift due to the die-off of millions of hemlocks caused by the hemlock woolly adelgid. This nonnative forest insect pest is believed to have come to the United States in the early 1900s from Japan, transported over by humans.
First discovered in the park in 2002, humans continue to spread the insects through firewood. Forestry experts say their loss will affect everything from stream temperatures to forest composition. Although hemlocks can live up to 600 years, a woolly adelgid can kill a tree in just three to 10 years.

Southern Tide on Las Olas. From my due diligence believe (and, unfortunately there are no guarantees) this will be a very safe environment or I wouldn't be participating.

Special 12 x 12 inch pieces on metal and larger pieces will be available for holidays. https://lasolasboulevard.com/fort-lauderdale/southern-tide/ #lasolas #followthetide @southerntidelasolas
