Lone Palm Daily Painting by JoAnn Sanborn

While it's great to live by water, every now and then nature give you a little surprise, as yesterday when I looked out to see a higher than normal tide coming right over our dock! No storm surge had been forcast for our area and we're quite far south in Florida, but this little surprise must have been a nudge from the shoulder of Hurricane Gustov as he passed by on his way to ravage New Orleans.

I had Clyde Butcher's Muck About in mind as I painted this lone palm and watched the water rise. The Butcher property is pretty far inland, but do you think that the people taking the walk on Sunday got into water a little higher than expected?

JoAnn- everyones' been holding their breath and thankfully, it could have been so much worse.

The solitary palm is taking it in stride and rhythm. I really like the feel of movement in this one.

Yes, it could have been much worse, but it's not over yet. We'll both keep our fingers crossed--except when we're painting!
