Florida painter, Everglades, Marco Island, artist Jo-Ann Sanborn


While traveling, in addition to the Edward Hopper exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston we saw a wonderful exhibition of Fitz Henry Lane and one of his students, Mary Blood Mellon, at the Cape Ann Historical Society in Gloucester, MA. Fitz Henry Lane, a Gloucester artist who's home still stands overlooking the harbor, was a well know luminist in the style of Florida's Martin Johnson Heade. Seeing a major exhibition affects both artists and our culture in ways only the future can tell.

Starting to paint again myself, I warmed up with this little mini-painting.
