Lido Beach Sarasota

Lido beach in Sarasota Florida is where my family and I spent the first few days of fall this year. Didn’t plan it that way, but that’s how it worked out. Ironic since fall is often the time when I mourn the passing of warm weather and the descent into the looooong cold winter months. […]

Dumbo

With Disney beginning to open up their theme parks, here is an older drawing made before the Dumbo ride was “re-imagined”. This meandering drawing I believe got cut short (see the people putting on ponchos and the umbrella) as the rain started to fall. You can also see the ink on my thumbnails starting to […]

(For those of you who don’t know, a snowbird is a Northeasterner who spends their winters down in the sunny and warm Southeastern United States.) We always try to make a trip to the shore to see the pelicans – […]

Southern Tree

I was recently commissioned to paint a specific tree which is located in Florida near the beach. Here is one variation that didn’t make the final cut, but I do like it. I think it captured a sunny beach vibe, which I so long for on this chilly December day. Greg Betza ©2017

Democracy at work

liberty,freedom/Michele Bedigian

Spent the day in the city and it was not too surprising how much energy was vibrating from corner to corner.
