Oil Paintings | South Florida Series I



 

HOUSE WITH ORANGE TREE

1967,  36" X 48",  Oil on Canvas,  Catalogue# O2100

In the 1960's - early 1970"s there were still some "Southern rustic" houses near the University of Miami campus. They are long gone having been replaced with condos, malls, etc.
 

 

KEY BISCAYNE LIGHT

1977,  48" X 60",  Oil on Canvas,  Catalogue# O2300

A South Florida landmark since the early 19th century, the light has been restored several times, once after being burned down by raiding Seminoles, the latest being after Hurricane Andrew in the 1990's. The stair climb to the light room is arduous but affords an unsurpassed view, At the time this painting was done, Stiltsville, a community of houses on stilts in Biscayne Bay, was still extant. Biscayne Bay is now a National park.
 

 

MACAW AT PARROT JUNGLE

1969,  18" X 24",  Oil on Canvasboard,  Catalogue# O2400

Another alla prima, done plein air over several hours. Macaws stand still longer than puppies and babies. The Parrot Jungle attraction apparently still exists, now in an urban area, not rural as it was in 1969.
 

 

EVERGLADES SCENE

1971,  18" X 48",  Oil on Canvas,  Catalogue# O2500

An idyllic view of a rapidly vanishing national treasure. Farming and suburban development are daily encroaching on the Everglades while state and federal politicians quibble about plans to save it.
 

 

BONEFISH FISHING AT DUSK, FLORIDA KEYS

1970,  24" X 24",  Oil on Canvas,  Catalogue# O2600

An attempt to capture backlighting at sunset, the painting depicts bonefishers off one of the Florida Keys.
(See the rendition of this painting- BONEFISHING AT DUSK, FLORIDA KEYS II )
 

 

REFLECTION ON A WINE BOTTLE

1976,  10" X 14",  Oil on Raw Canvas,  Catalogue# O2700

Is the outer frame "real" or painted?
