Full moon over Duval street

Warm, sultry, tropical nights are upon us. The moon was so bright coming up over Antonia in the 600 block of Duval.

New sunflower paintings

After doing the commission last week I needed to paint more sunflowers as they were so cheerful. So I painted them with some Royal poinciana blooms in the back ground and a moon instead of the sun this time. I think i will probably turn this into a giclee.
SOLD Then I painted a small 5"x7" gallery wrap canvas, which I think is very cute. Both are at the gallery and for sale. The large one is 16"x20" and $1,200.00 and the smaller is $195.00, what a bargain.

Royal Poinciana time!

It seems like overnight the Royal Poinciana trees started their summer spectacular. It starts around mothers day and lasts all summer and the island is ablaze of red. Every street you look down you see a spot of red against the beautiful blue sky!! It makes my heart beat faster!

Newest painting

This is a commission for a customer of mine who said paint me sunflowers and a sun. I think it came out nice and he is excited to receive it. It just needs to dry and I need to put a frame on it and then its off to my customer. Gary and Andy- if you are reading this I saw you two on a commercial for your guest house on TV. Looked like you were having fun! I couldn't find your email address!

Food post

Here it is the middle of May already and I haven't posted very often. Busy Busy busy. Got home from NJ and helping my mother get moved into an assisted living place I thought I should make my daughter a nice home cooked meal. Tenderloin beef kabobs and grilled veggies! Just skewered and marinated in olive oil and salt and pepper.
Cooked the meat second and only for a few minutes it was still pink inside. Served with oven baked curry sweet potatos. Just rolled in olive oil and curry powder and salt and pepper bake on oiled sheet pan, yum!

For Cinco de Mayo I made fish tacos with some lovely fresh halibut, pan sauteed in corn meal with fresh pico de gallo, guacamole and a cilantro lime crema.
Served with vodka Mojitos with crushed strawberries. OLE!

Checking in on the mangos

With a morning walk after being away over a week, the mangos looked much bigger. Keeping my eyes on them to make sure none fall over the fence into my waiting hands!
