It's going to be hard to work today! I will try take more later this afternoon to show the progress.

These photos are taken from inside the house and through glass. We don't want to disrupt them in any way....not today!

9am and things are progressing......

This morning, March 31st, we woke up and this is what we stick.

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!


Early last spring we asked our local dock builders, the Baileys, to put in an Osprey stand in front of the house. We have several nest locations near the house so it was quite a gamble.

Women in the Arts

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!

Waterhole Mix

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!
