My husband and I took about twenty paintings to the Museum of the Everglades in Everglades City to hang the upcoming show. The Museum Director graciously lent a hand, and as we hung, Museum staff regaled us with stories of the area. Please join us on Saturday as the Friends of the Museum hold a nice reception on Saturday from 2-4. I'll be there to talk with you about my work. It's about 1/2 hour from Marco and the drive is on the scenic and lovely Tamiami Trail. You'll pass palm hammocks and cypress stands and some wide prairies. If you're fortunate the light will provide much interest as it moves over the landscape. We were happy to see the water at higher levels than the last time we were out. This beautiful palm was standing by itself on the side of the road just begging to be painted as we returned from hanging the show. I didn't have time for a large painting, so this one is a mini. Watch for it on the right if you drive out on Saturday!
