WHEN I LIVED IN FLORIDA,WILD SEALIFE WAS ABUNDANT AND ENJOYABLE TO VISIT. THE MANATEE EXHIBIT WAS VERY INTERESTING. THESE VERY GENTLE GIANTS HAVE NO REAL ENEMIES EXCEPT BOATERS .MY INSPIRATION FOR THIS PAINTING CAME AS A RESULT OF ONE OF THOSE VISITS.

I HAVE BEEN INTERESTED IN DOING ART WORK SINCE I WAS A YOUNG CHILD. MY FATHER WAS A CARTOONIST AND THUS ENCOURAGED ME IN ALL MY ENDEAVOURS. I AM MOSTLY SELF TAUGHT. I AM 81 YEARS YOUNG AND LIVE ALONE. MY HUSBAND OF 60 YEARS PASSED AWAY THREE YEARS AGO.I HAVE RAISED FIVE CHILDREN, ONLY ONE LIVES NEAR ME.THE OTHER FOUR LIVE IN THREE DIFFERENT STATES. I HAVE EIGHT GRAND CHILDREN, AND TWO GREAT GRAND CHILDREN.. I TRY TO SHOW MY LOVE OF MOTHER NATURE AND ALL HER GIFTS IN ALL MY WORKS. I KEEP BUSY WITH MANY ACITIVITES INCLUDING PLAYING BINGO TWICE A WEEK. I HAVE LIVED IN FLORIDA WHERE I TAUGHT SENIORS TO PAINT. I HAVE WON MANY AWARDS IN THE MANY YEARS OF DOING ART SHOWS. I HAVE SOLD ART WORK TO SEVERAL COUNTRIES AND APPRECIATE COMMENTS FROM MY CUSTOMERS.I HOPE YOU WILL ENJOY MY ART WORK AS MUCH AS I ENJOY PAINTING THEM.
