Lately I've been splitting my mind between the Southwest and the Gulf Coast of Florida. The Southwest to me is very moving and I do have to say that I miss it - painting scenes from the Southwest allows me to visit a place I love.
The Gulf Coast of Florida is very beautiful as well and now that the summer humidity is dropping the days are very pleasant with lots of sunshine.
BATTLESHIP ROCK NEW MEXICO
7 X 14
Battleship Rock is a spectacular basalt rock cliff at the confluence of the Jemez River and the East Fork of the Jemez River. The formation is located in north-central New Mexico in the Jemez Mountains. Battleship Rock rises nearly 200 feet, creating an impressive rock formation seen from the Hwy 4. It resembles Navy warship, therefore its name.
As in Sedona AZ, there are also rock formations in New Mexico - additionally New Mexico is know for its glorious cloud formations while still maintaining over 300 sunshine days a year.

About 1 hour from our home is the island of Gasparilla on which Boca Grande beach is located. This is our very favorite beach - never overly crowded and the sand is white and the water is a beautiful blue and turquoise as it is on the Gulf of Mexico. We went there a week ago and had a wonderful day on the beach.
