|"Shady Veranda–Hyde Park", 8x8, oil|
This summer I've started a new series of small paintings of my favorite part of Tampa: Hyde Park. This is a historic area with lots of beautiful homes ranging from cute arts and crafts bungalows to larger more stately homes like this one. The streets are lined with large, leafy trees and the area has a real small town feel.
I go every Saturday morning and camp out on the sidewalk and paint for a few hours. It's fun and I get to meet a lot of the locals, who pass by taking their exercise or walking their dogs. If you're in the area on a Saturday, please stop and say hi!
