Description Castillo de San Marcos in St. Augustine, Florida, is the only17th century fort in North America. Its construction began in 1672 and is made of local coquina stone. St. Augustine is the oldest city in the United States, having been founded in 1565 by Spanish Admiral Pedro Menendez de Aviles. The fort is operated by the National Parks Service and attracts many tourists. The 18' x 24' original acrylic painting is still available for purchase.
Robert Wince, New Smyrna Beach, Florida Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement I have been painting most of my life as a self-taught artist, but I have benefited from numerous classes and workshops. My work has been shown in galleries and outdoor art shows and I have won awards for my efforts. I paint mainly in acrylic and oil and my work ranges in size from 5"x7" to 36"x 60". I enjoy traveling and setting up my field easel in some beautiful area and painting what I see. Perhaps you've seen me painting in one of our national parks or hiking on a mountain trail. Many of the original paintings are still available for sale. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
