Commissioned Paintings – University of Miami School of Business

Miami University School of Business commissioned me to create, paint two large watercolors for the purpose of producing posters to be used for advertising their new Schools .
It was a very cold winter day and I went and sat on the grounds of the University to capture their new architecture.  The bicycles of the students, the ducks in the small creek in front all capture the energy of Miami.

World traveler and local painter Eileen Seitz has been a regular at the South Miami Art Festival for 12 years. “I was born in Manhattan in the concrete jungle. When I began
Traveling and experiencing the bright colors of the tropics while surfing in the Virgin Islands I decided to make Florida my home. I feel I am giving back to people the spirit of living through drawing and painting to remind them of a simple way of life. I am Blessed to be able to capture the harmonious beauty of the sunlit tropical colors that surround us
everywhere.” The Multi-dimensional appearing painting “Peacocks in Paradise” is exuberantly colored in bright pinks, yellows and blues with smiling Hibiscus throughout the landscape and two peacocks almost hiding behind the flowers
while the sea beckons in the background.

The Giclee (or fine art print, original is sold) of “Side by Side” is a simple wooden dock image from Camden, Maine with colorful canoes resting alongside each otherin a tranquil sapphire bay at sunset.

The 28th Annual South Miami Rotary Art Festival is open from 10am to 6pm February 25 and 26 on Sunset Drive between US1 and Red Road. In addition to hundreds of artists

from around the country exhibiting, there will be a children’s alley on SW 57 Court, a multinational food court, live music, not for profit association tabling, raffle tickets and

beer and soda sales to benefit Rotary’s charities.

Cover Artwork – St. Thomas This Week Magazine, St. Thomas Virgin Islands

My original watercolor” Seagrape Dinghies”, was chosen to grace the cover of the Magazine “St. Thomas This Week for St. Thomas and St. John USVI

I am so excited and delighted as I have a strong connection and relationship to St. Thomas since 1972 when I first lived there.
