Painting by Eve Wheeler
Eve emailed me a while back and asked if she could paint one of my photographs.  She specifically asked if she could paint this first photo.  I don’t often allow other artists to recreate my visions through the lens. I trusted Eve. I felt she did a great job. You can see her visons of art on her website at Eve Wheeler Art

I have been a Shelling Guide to Cayo Costa State Park since 1995. Many people know me as the Shelling Guide and Captain with Captiva Cruises over the past 20 years. In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.

    Just lovely. Your home is going to start looking like an art gallery between your artists admirers & Lil Salty.
