9x12, oil on linen. Here is a series of small paintings of Africa. I'm really enjoying working small for a change! This is a Cheetah family I have painted before. We had the pleasure of watching the Mom hunt and take down a small Wildebeast. It got away, this time.

24x30 oil on linen, Something different for me. It was fun painting the Schooner, Lady Maryland. On the horizon, sometimes you get this mirage effect in the summertime. The boat seems to be floating in air and you almost feel it could be a real mirage or ghost ship that disappears minutes later.

8x10, oil on canvas. Last July I was honored to be selected to a group of Plein Air painters in "Paint Easton" competition. This was a real eye opener for me. I was humbled by the talent of painters from all over the country. Plein air painting is NOT for sissys.... 90 degree heat, 110% humidtity, and a thunderstorm. Some painters were out at sunrise and go till sunset....and even night painting! This painting is from a spot in Claiborn, MD where I spent many hours.

24x50, oil on Linen, I'm re-posting this to group the paintings together. This painting depicts an average waterhole in Africa. It's common to see several species at one time and here we have Zebra, Guinea Fowl and Red-billed Quelea, a weaver like bird that flock by the millions....even billions!

Over the year we have observed lots of activity from everything but Osprey. A Great Blue Heron, Sea Gulls, King Fisher, Turkey Vultures and a variety of small birds. Yesterday we woke up to this! They were there all morning and Matthew even saw them mate on the platform!

I had the honor of being asked to be the speaker this year at an event at Raymond James Financial head quarters in Florida. I really had to face some demons when I accepted the invitation to stand up in front of hundreds of people! I think I had a lot to say about Women and about Art so, .......good thing!

24x50, oil on linen. I love the mix and movement at a waterhole in Africa. Ten minutes later and it's all changed. It can be completely void of any wildlife at all. This painting is my centerpiece for a two man show at the Troika Gallery in Easton Maryland. The other man is my husband, Matthew Hillier!
