INSPIRATION

Robert enjoys painting outdoors in many of the local parks that are within a short drive of his home in Safety Harbor, FL. Studies are created directly from nature and are reference for larger paintings.

QUOTE FROM THE ARTIST:  I am extremely fortunate to live in an area with such an abundance of subjects to paint. I draw and paint various subjects with waterfowl being of current interest. I look forward to many years of what I enjoy most, creating art.
