Among the paintings I’m behind with due to too many difficulties last year is this of Seminole Wars Naval reenactor Kim Ceullers. Kim travels around, in between his work, and speaks and re-enacts various times in 1800s America. He was a speaker for a museum I’ve been involved with. This is a Thank You for his speaking.
I had the opportunity to meet Bill at an event near Spring hill & Weeki Wachee, Florida on Sunday. I met him as he played Stardust and a medley from The Phantom of the Opera. He complained that he missed notes. Sounded great to me. Especially for a fellow of 94 years. Bill drove a tractor trailer most of his career in Canada after his family moved him from England as a teen.
Here’s the watercolor illustration i did of 80 year young Nancy, the birthday girl, who was being honored at the party.
I thought I’d share this inked piece that i did Friday for a company Christmas card. Still have coloring to do.

During a meeting tonight, I took a short break from working on books to finally get back to this year’s Christmas card. Next is to add a whole mess of animals!
It’s been a few months with all sorts of delays, but I finally finished it! Now it’s ready to be made into cards and I’ll let you all know when it’s available.
This was painted on Arches watercolor board, with some watercolor pencils and inking with various brush markers.
This painting has been lingering as I’ve been tackling a ton of other work. In between going from meeting to meeting to meeting Wednesday, I found myself stuck in a Dairy Queen with a cold smoothie and a wicked storm. Gave me some time to get a bunch of painting done to this. It’s pretty close to finished.
About that pretty typical #Florida storm: The lightning spiked all around the building to the point of knocking out the electricity. Some folks inside weren’t used to our Florida rains and the violent crashes of very nearby electricity had a few inside the Dairy Queen screaming. It was just another day in Florida!
During a political forum Thursday night, I got a chance to add watercolor. Hope to get more done Monday night at another forum. In the meantime trips to Gainesville and toward Spring Hill lie ahead.
