Out for a Walk, Daily Painting by JoAnn Sanborn

If you live on Marco Island and haven't been to the Town Center Mall on the first Wednesday of the month you're missing something special! You can sit back and sip something cool from the Crazy Flamingo as Island musician J. Roberts plays his delightful easy listening music to a appreciative crowd and artists gather around to paint. Art and music! The Blue Mangrove Gallery and local artist Tara O'Neill set up a number of easels at the tables around the gazebo where people are welcome to take up a brush. Children and adults are welcome, but children should not be left unattended--it's a family affair. They've had a great response to the event and it's a lot of fun, so put it on your calendar for next month!

Speaking of children, today's painting reminds me of a mother out for a walk with her kids. There's always one who has to get too close to the water!

I love the reflective quality of "Out for a Walk"...it warms my heart especially hearing there's a frost advisory on for sections of Maine tonight! I'll be back on Marco before you know it...enjoying all of my friends and the tropical music of J. Robert!

o-o-o-oh Frost! What a novel idea! Windy and rainy for two days here, but know there'll be sunshine soon! Glad my painting can warm your heart! We all look forward to your return. Jo-Ann

O yes, Joann! You know, when I paint my umbrellas, they all (to me)have individual personalities, relationships with each other,lives of their own, etc.
AND now I can so see this in your trees. I think that's fantastic, thank-you for that.

I guess when we get close to any subject we atribute human caracteristics. Crazy, but makes it personal! Thanks, Tara

Jo Ann, what strikes me every time I look at your palms is how much personality you give them, and the stories they help you narrate with their expressive postures.

And with such simplicity and knowing.

Just wonderful- always...
PS- did I forget to mention your gorgeous use of color?!
