My painting "Gators" which won one of the top awards in the NWS Members Exhibit was published on the May 1, 2016 cover of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  After appearing on the cover, prints of "Gators" have been very popular with University of Florida Alumni and I arranged to gift the original painting to the UF for display in their permanent collection in Jan 2017.   This painting was voted one of the top 25 cover artworks over the last 50 years and was published August 2023 in the "JAVMArt Jubilee: Celebrating 50 Years of Our Favorite Cover Art".

In Sept 2020, I was one of a number of artists doing a demo at the Florida Watercolor Society Online Virtual Convention.   The demo was entitled "Tips and Techniques in Plein Air Journaling in Watercolor and Pen/Ink".   In Sept 2023, I was asked to do a live demo on the same topic at the FWS annual exhibit/workshops which I showed some sketches from my recent trip to the Amazon and Iceland.

In Sept 2021, I spent a week in Paris...beautiful weather and I was able to wander the city on foot and did many entries in my plein air journal.  After that, I toured from Barcelona to Monte Carlo and then from Athens to Istanbul where I continued my travel journaling.  My son Rick and I made it to the interior of the Amazon in March 2023. 

 I now have a book published on this topic which is titled "Plein Air Journaling in Watercolor and Pen and Ink".  Rather than being a "how to" book, it is a book that hopefully will encourage other artists to try journaling by showing sketches and explaining how each one becomes a memorable experience!

In March 2024, I went from Hong Kong to Tokyo and did numerous sketches.  I am scheduled to do a Plein Air Journaling workshop in New Port Richey, FL in early May 2024.

On May 30, 2024, I will have an exhibit/book signing reception at the Gallery of Art 850 in Panama City FL.  The exhibit will be up through July 6.  Everyone is welcome!
