Wow this was a tough year to paint for the Deering Estate Exhibition but I got it done. I chose a photo I took from a friend’s garden, another from the Fairchild Garden I took a while back.I had a lot of fun painting both paintings. In the Exhibition I also included the painting that won the Judge’s Award this year in the Deering Estate Plein Air Competition “Juliet’s Balcony ” I hope you get the chance to check out the exhibition it will be up until September 27th. Check the Deering Estate website for times they are open. The grounds and buildings are beautiful and the exhibition is in a beautiful place. You will enjoy this exhibit; so if you are in Miami take a little detour and check it out.

For some time now I have been taking photos of every flower that catches my attention since I use those photos to paint my tropical flower paintings. So while playing with photoshop painting program I started playing with the photos and started to have a lot of fun with the digital paintings I was creating. This past year I had an accident and ripped my meniscus in my knee and I was out sitting in my couch for 3 months. I started listening to a bible radio station and it sparked my interest again to read the bible. I had gotten some inspirational bible quotes on my facebook page “artsyanaflorida” and I had a bright bulb moment and put the digital flower prints with my favorite bible quotes and I just posted them to Etsy.

Hi Everybody, I had a crazy year so far but I was able to get a couple of paintings done for the Deering Estate Summer Exhibition. If you are going to be in Miami go check it out. The Deering Estate is a beautiful location with lots of history and several buildings from the beginning of the century. One is even made out of coral rock. They do exhibitions around the area and inside the historical buildings. My paintings will be exhibited there for the summer. Go check them out. If you are interested in purchasing the paintings send me an email: email@example.com
This painting won 2nd place in the plein air competition this January.
Love to paint palms had a great time painting this one
This one is from a photo I took at the Fairchild Gardens in Miami. Great place for plant lovers
I painted this one in a plein air event at the Gumbo Limbo Park in Boca Raton.
They misspelled my name but my painting of “Lily Rising” is front and center.This is a neat place to visit and I encourage anyone who will be in Miami to check it out. It’s incredible ;the property has buildings from an era long gone well preserved one of the buildings is made out of coral rock. You literary go back in time when everything was done grand yet the simplicity of the time when there was not technology gives you a sense of peace and tranquility.You can stroll around the estate and in every step you see something wonderful; palms, buildings, old farming equipment and cozy paths to the grand bay at the back where if you are lucky you might see manatees come by.
I made these paintings for the exhibition with photos I took at the Fairchild Gardens in Miami and the Bonnet House Orchid Show in Fort Lauderdale. I love painting unusual flowers. Go to the page PEEK OVER MY SHOULDER so you can get a look at the different stages of painting.
