The Open Road

Welcome to my blog. I’ve recently starting painting everyday and I plan on posting my paintings and my progress on this site. I’ve been creating art my whole life but only started painting with oils a few years ago. I’m a native Floridian and although I’ve lived in California, Colorado, Connecticut, and Vermont, I keep coming back to Florida. I love the lushness, the heat, and yes, even the humidity. I frequently find myself painting citrus and tropical fruits mostly because I really enjoy eating them.

I love the open road. Driving across Alligator Alley a number of times over the last few months I was really inspired by the clouds and the promise of the highway and would have loved to stop in the middle of the fast lane and started painting. Someday soon I’d like to paint some large highway canvases. In the meantime I’ve started this blog with this miniature ACEO sized (2.5″ x 3.5″) painting. Please feel free to leave comments. I’d like to hear what you have to say.

  1. Steven….this is just wonderful and very impressive….it just makes me smile, thinking of you!

  2. I love your paintings!! i am a newbie to the blogosphere, but was hooked when I landed on Karins “Different Strokes ” Blog, and will try her subjects from now on. Bummed I missed the portrait one…I would have loved that!! Any advice on how you sell your paintings? I am looking into selling what I paint, and would love some advice, as I am used to straight commissions. Where did you live in Connecticut?
