'The Carmel Sea + The Emerald Coast' meets at Hidden Lantern

The artist has gotten involved in painting en plein air, which she says has brought it all together for her since she primarily paints landscapes.

"There has been a big surge in painting en plein air and getting out and painting our beautiful land," she said. "I have always loved the beaches, and I love the dunes. I have always been inspired by light on an object, the light around an object, colors, and shadows."

Her work has won recognition, including Best in Show at ArtsQuest 2013, runner-up to Best in Show at Back to Nature 2013 and Best in Show at Back to Nature 2012. She was juried into Southeast Regional 2012, and juried into Women Painters of the Southeast for 2012 and 2013. She is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society, Emerald Coast Plein Air Painters, and Pastel Society of North Florida, where she served as president for two years.

Last year Bogle visited Carmel and painted outdoors on that coast. When she returned home, she thought it would be wonderful to show the differences in the coastlines in an exhibit. That exhibit is now at The Hidden Lantern.

"I've got plein air and studio pieces in the show from both coastal destinations — the Carmel sea and Emerald Coast in a one-woman show," said Bogle. "It's quite an honor."

"The Carmel Sea + The Emerald Coast" exhibit is up through Feb. 16 at The Hidden Lantern in Rosemary Beach.
