I, Bonnie Rodgers have an exhaustive repertoire of canvas paintings and paintings on paper in original oil paintings, watercolors paintings, mixed media paintings, acrylic paintings as well as pastels, pen & ink sketches, photography and expressive collages.

Since becoming a North Port Florida artist I paint en Plein Air capturing sandhill and lesser cranes, egret, kingfisher, blue heron plus much more. Punta Gorda, Florida Farmer's Market, off Olympus street, is where I also paint oil, acrylic, watercolor, or mixed media paintings on Saturdays from 8:00 to 1:00 p.m.. Come and meet me and see my new work in progress.
My career has also led me into creating aesthetically pleasing murals for homes, offices, hospitals, daycares and restaurants. I love interacting with other enthusiastic artists through Oil Painters of America, American Watercolor Society, Landscape Painters of America and many other organizations. I am still amazed when my work earns an award. The Artist Magazine, Nebraska Mother's Association, the National Mother's Association, Omaha Artist, Inc., Bellevue Artists Association, Charlotte County Chamber and Charlotte County Art Fair have awarded me ribbons from Best of Show to Honorable Mention.
"Art is the vehicle through which my inner experiences, insights, and intuition are manifested on canvas paintings or as paintings on paper Ideas flicker past me like migrating birds, some must be fully explored and others escape into their own journey." Teaching art workshops and adult art classes encourages me to take risks and pass them on to my students so they can to find their own artistic voice. I currently teach all media at North Ports Hobby Lobby and Lakeside Plantation so come and join me with whatever media you are working in.
