The Aracari is a member of the Toucan Family. It is a smaller bird and is found in Central and South America. They love to eat palm nuts! I had the wonderful experience of watching this bird "pop" these palm nuts into its mouth as if it were popcorn!

Botanical Fine Art Painting, Iris,Watercolor "PURPLE IRIS WITH SWALLOWTAIL BUTTERFLY" by Mindy Lighthipe


For most of my adult life I have been an avid gardener. My beginning years were in New Jersey where I had an extensive collection of bearded irises. It was always a thrill to see these tall flowers blooming in the garden and even a bigger thrill when a Swallowtail Butterfly would hover it and gather nectar.

Wildlife Art Insect, Nature, Butterfly "PEACOCK BUTTERFLY" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe


The Peacock Butterfly is common in Europe and is easily identified by the large eyespots on the hind wings. The eyespots are designed to startle or confuse would be predators into thinking it is a much larger animal. If the predator does take a bite, it is usually directed towards the eyespot. The delicate wings may tear or get damaged during the attack but it allows the butterfly to break free and flee for its life.

Moths and butterflies belong to the classification of Insects called Lepidoptera. Lepidoptera is a latin word which means "scaled wing". When magnified under a microscope the scales of the wing structure are easy to see. For this series of paintings I did the background by looking under a microscope and drew the individual wing pattern and structure in pencil while placing the colorful butterfly on the surface in watercolor. The original has been sold but is available in 3 sizes of fine art reproduction canvas prints. Please look through the rest of the gallery to see other images from the series. They make a great sets for your home decor.

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth


The last couple of weeks have certainly kept me busy! 

The Villages in Florida was my "home" for 3 days last week, where I worked with 18 talented ladies.  This week I wrapped up my Private Abstract Painting Workshop with another talented artist at my studio in Inverness, Florida.  

I started these three paintings as demos at the workshops and just completed them to list on my website.  

My private painting workshops are becoming quite popular and my calendar is filling up fast.  I don't do national workshops, so if you'd like to spend three intense (and fun) days of painting instruction with one-on-one guidance, be sure to contact me as soon as possible.  


Everything is supplied for your private painting workshop.  Just bring your enthusiasm!

Wildlife Art Insect, Nature, Butterfly "BLUE MORPHO BUTTERFLY" The Art of Nature, Fine Art by Mindy Lighthipe


The Blue Morpho Butterfly is one of the biggest butterflies found in tropical rainforest in Central and South America. It has a very erratic flight pattern as it flies up into the air only to drop suddenly as it moves amongst the trees. This jagged flight patterns helps to protect it from would be predators as they often attack at the highest point just as the butterfly drops its wings and falls below the danger zone. Moths and butterflies belong to the classification of Insects called Lepidoptera. Lepidoptera is a latin word which means "scaled wing". When magnified under a microscope the scales of the wing structure are easy to see. For this series of paintings I did the background by looking under a microscope and drew the individual wing pattern and structure in pencil while placing the colorful butterfly on the surface in watercolor.

Contemporary Modern Abstract Art Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Fun at The Villages!


Have you ever been to The Villages in Florida?  If not, you're in for a real treat.  The Villages bills itself as "Florida's Friendliest Hometown".  It is a huge retirement community of (very) active seniors.  I live just about 30 miles west of The Villages and go there often to shop or dine in one of the many fine restaurants.  When guests come to visit us, we like to take them there to enjoy the music and dancing that is held at Brownwood Paddock Square 365 days a year!


This past week, I held a 3 day abstract painting workshop at The Villages, organized by Village Art Workshops.  We had a great turnout with 18 talented artists.  I am always so pleased when everyone goes home on the last day with 3+ finished paintings, an arsenal of new techniques and ideas and a big smile on their faces!  


I don't have any group workshops scheduled in the near future, but if you'd like to spend 3 fun days of painting with me at my Private Abstract Painting Workshop, please contact me to set up a date.  Everything is provided, even lunch and a glass of wine, just bring your enthusiasm!

Original Coastal Landscape Painting ,Palm Tree, Pink House Art "Island Life" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St. Martin

I found this little pink cottage tucked away next to the water. This, I thought, would be a wonderful place to paint. With it's lovely charm and surroundings it would be a great environment to keep those creative juices flowing. However, its present owners felt the same way I felt...oh well...I'll have to find another little cottage tucked in the woods.

Original Florida Coastal Landscape Red Cottage Painting "Off the Beaten Path" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin





Okay I have to admit it!! If I see an interesting dirt road I feel compelled to investigate. Of course if there is a no trespassing sign with a picture of a gun.. I'll move on. Seeing a flicker of a bright melon orange colored cottage through the trees peeked my interest. It sat next to a thatch roofed gazebo. Beyond was an area untouched and full of tropical vegetation.
Who lives in this interesting cottage?

Child Figurative, Child on Beach Art "Capturing Attitude" by Florida Impressionism Artist Annie St Martin

Capturing Attitude is an oil painting on canvas. It is one of a number of paintings in the Attitude Series. Whether children are at play or at rest, they are so full of joy and wonder, and so excited about everything around them. Yet, after a long day of playing very hard in the water and moving sand around on the beach they become very tired. There is no hiding their emotions, they are a never-ending source of subject matter. Victoria is saying, Grammie, not another picture! Could you resist snapping another shot of this beautiful face?
