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


This dolphin sculpture was donated to the City of Marco Island following a Dolphin Sculpture fundraiser some years ago. It looked as though it had been hit by a car, and was in sad shape as a welcoming committee to City Hall. The City took it to an auto body shop for structural repairs, but she still needed some repainting. Since the artist who originally painted this one is no longer available, I volunteered to do the work. She's recovering well and will get a final touch up this week. Bob and I also painted a dolphin for this fundraiser. I can't seem to find an image of it, but here's a photo of our original sketch. He's a sculptor, and we often discuss each other's work, but this was our first "hands on" "collaborative" effort. Wow--did sparks fly! Different aesthetic visions? We both ended up happy with the results, and our dolphin, called "Catch of the Day" is now in a private collection.
