For the past three winters, Florence and her husband have lived on their catamaran, Harmony. The artistic result has been a series of acrylic paintings, pastels and other drawings as well as some photographs. These works have been inspired by places along the Intracoastal Waterway, Bimini, the Exumas and the Abacos.
One of Florence's favorite themes is Junkanoo, a seasonal celebration unique to the Bahamas, which features lavishly colorful costumes.
"As we make this trip, I am very aware that my palette changes drastically from the ochres and olive greens of the States to the elusive nuances of the Bahama waters and the brilliant colors of the island homes and celebrations."
