Clyde Part II and an update

Hi Fellow Tortuga Heads (I'm trying out nicknames for fans of the Flying Tortuga Brothers).

This week on Thursday we will release part II of the Clyde Butcher interview we did last week at his studio over in Venice Florida.  We can't wait to share it with you!

As Shannon and Carl drove across Florida just south of Lake Okeechobee through the farmland with the big skies they both got ideas for subjects for new artworks so I am certain they will both be back out that way this summer!

Speaking of goings on this summer Carl is leaving Florida in one week to meet up with photographer Shawn Moss in Portland Oregon.  Shawn is on a four month photo trek across the U.S.  Carl is joining Shawn for two weeks of camping and photography.  They will explore the Columbia River Gorge and then parks along the way out to the coast before following the coast North to Washington and ending up in Seattle.  It should be a great trip with a treasure trove of new photos and stories.  Carl will do a remote recording with Shawn for the podcast.  The interview will be used for Flying Tortuga Brothers as well as the IAMLAKEWORTH podcast as Shawn was also a subject in that project.

Shannon has a busy summer planned more paintings and poetry.  The watercolor below is 6x6" and was completed on Friday.  Shannon will be a regular fixture at the beach again this summer.  Look for his bike and his easel and you'll find him there painting.

During the interview Clyde Butcher mentioned that Big Cypress preserve also has an AIR residence program.  Carl will be applying for a two or three week residence for the 2019-2020 season.  It would be great experience as well as it would look great on the application for the Dry Tortugas.

That's about it for now from Tortugaville... Carl will be checking in with some remote updates from the Pacific Northwest.

Don't forget to check out part II of the Clyde interview this Thursday at Podbean or wherever you get your podcasts.

The plan is to update the blog weekly thru the summer months with posts and news about the podcast.
