Steve Andrews


Tallahassee, FL

You could call this “A Lawyer Paints” or more accurately “The Painter is also a Lawyer”. The marketing gurus would say keep these things separated. Your legal client doesn’t want to know about your artistic ability, and the collector wants to deal with a true professional who is struggling with his life and art. Well, this is me. If art paid like law, I would certainly give up the legal part (except those clients that are pleasure to help). But for now I will have to do both.

So I have decided to embrace my circumstances. I am an artist who can afford to do whatever he wants to do artistically. I can paint the way I want to paint and the things I want to paint. If you want an artist who is willing to change a painting so that it matches your living room couch, then you probably have the wrong guy. I paint what I want to paint because it inspires me and I want to try to communicate that inspiration. I do enough of it that I like the idea of it hanging on your wall and you enjoying it, rather than it gathering dust in my closet. So there you have it. My name is Steve, and I am a lawyer.



Lynn Whipple


Winter Park, Florida

I am a native of Winter Park, Florida, long time member of McRae Art Studios and a full time artist for over 18 years. I have worked in many mediums, including drawing, collage and assemblage, but I have found no greater joy or more satisfying art making experience than painting outside. Like so many people, I feel happiest and most alive when surrounded by nature. The challenge of capturing the fleeting light, rich colors and the ever-changing shapes that make up our outdoor world, and translate them into a finished painting is thrilling to me. My goal, at it’s core, is to share the “feeling” of a place. While I enjoy every part of the plein air painting process, I find I am especially enamored with mixing color and the lush, beautiful, thick, paint itself.


Mikel Wintermantel


Allegany, New York

Mikel has earned the Copley Master distinction from the Copley Society. He has been awarded the coveted John Singleton Copley Award, The Bryan Family Award in landscape, 2nd and 3rd place in the National American Artist/Shiva Casein Competition, Exhibited in the Copley Society, the Harvard Club, the Boston Guild and the Salmagundi Club in NY. Articles on this work have been published in numerous magazines including an upcoming feature article in American Artist Watercolor Magazine Spring 2010 issue.


Tom Sadler


Orlando, Florida

Tom Sadler has dedicated his artistic effort towards capturing the light, color, and mood of the central Florida landscape since he moved to Orlando in 1983. The intense light, combined with the natural beauty of the many lakes, rivers and parks provide a never-ending source of inspiration. His paintings come to life as a celebration of this beauty found in nature, sometimes exuberant, and other times more subtle. Tom received his BFA at Auburn University and also attended the School of Visual Arts in New York. He works mainly in oils because of their inherent versatility and permanence, alternating between very transparent and very opaque color. His glazing techniques imbue his work with an unmistakable sense of light. This depiction of light becomes the main subject in most of Sadler’s works.


Morgan Samuel Price


Altamonte Springs, Florida

In 1956, Morgan’s family moved to New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Morgan instantly became enthralled with the roar of the ocean. As the early morning scent of the orange blossoms filled the winter air, a fascination with the south blossomed in Morgan, as well.  When Morgan was 15, Patricia Kirkeberg, a professional artist in Florida, took Morgan under her wing. Ms. Kirkeberg studied with the leading artists of the 20th century (Don Kingman, Elliott O’Hara, Robert Brackman and George B. Bridgeman), so she was well equipped to introduce Morgan to the world of an artist. In 1963, under the tutelage of artist Elliott McMurrough (a student of Henry Hensche), Morgan attempted her first plein air painting in DeBary, FL.  It was Morgan’s visual fascination with shapes and the play of light that eventually led Morgan to art school.While attending the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL, Morgan was a student of Loran Wilford (1892-1972). Wilford was a leading illustrator turned fine artist of the 20th century. In 1968 Morgan graduated from Ringling.  Her first employment as a professional artist was in Kansas City, Missouri with Hallmark Cards, Inc.

After spending her early career as an illustrator and art director, Morgan turned her attention to plein air painting. In 1972 Morgan opened her first studio in Ardmore, Oklahoma. In 1976 Morgan studied with Robert Carl Cogar who she credits as the most important mentor of her career.

Since then Morgan has traveled the US and Europe painting plein air. She’s also been included in over sixty-three invitational national exhibitions, received numerous national awards (Please visit her website: for a complete listing.), been published fourteen times in national magazines and even authored two books (Oil Painting with a Basic Palette and Turn on the Light a touchstone to Plein Air Painting). Jean Stern PhD., Executive Director for the Joan Irvine Smith Museum of California Impressionists writes: “Morgan Samuel Price is among the best of the true plein air painters of today…”

Morgan is not only an accomplished artist; she is an equally masterful teacher, as well. For over 35 + years, she has been teaching and inspiring fellow artists all over the world with her wealth of knowledge. Her unique ability to convey her knowledge with each individual student is a gift Morgan loves sharing.

The most impressive part of all of Morgan’s accomplishments is her passion for her craft that drives a relentless pursuit for perfection. Her unending quest to seize the moment that Nature’s natural light creates, allows Morgan to draw the viewer into the exact moment she first set out to capture on her canvas. The natural beauty in Morgan’s work is truly timeless. Morgan Samuel Price’s dedication to her art form is unwavering whether it is manifested at the easel or at the lecture podium.

Gary Rupp


Winter Park, Florida

“Life has a way of pushing aside the soul. Art reminds us we have one. Just as a musician selects from a cacophony of sounds to make music, my job as a painter is to organize the colors surrounding us into something beautiful called a painting.”

Gary Rupp’s experience with plein air painting came when he was studying art at Wheaton College. He completed a minor in studio art, but after graduation pursued a different career path. Several years ago Gary’s interest in painting was reawakened and he began further training with pastel artists, such as, Albert Handell, Maggie Price and Michael Chesley Johnson. He discovered pastels provide him the purest and most natural colors available for his paintings. The combination of plein air and pastels drew him in quickly and this has become the primary focus of Gary’s art.

Gary considers himself to be an emerging artist. Since 2011, he has had several first time opportunities which included being juried into the Evinston Paint Out, acceptance into a gallery and participation in a group art show. Gary is grateful to be a part of the Florida Painters, a group of central Florida artists who are passionate for plein air and share his joy of painting the light.
