Handmade, October Afternoon Everglades Daily Painting by JoAnn Sanborn


Everything we live with and use on a daily basis has been chosen by you. What are your choices? How many of the things that you live with daily
would you classify as "art?" How many things around you in your home have been purchased directly from the maker? Do you have a piece of handmade furniture? A painting purchased directly from an artist? Do you drink your daily coffee or tea from a mug handmade by a local potter? Serve your vegetables in a handmade dish? What are your treasured things, and how well will they travel into the next generation. Just something to think about!


My brother has been visiting this week. His joy in our weather and natural environment is refreshing. Despite the showers we've had some great weather for him to enjoy. Today's Everglades daily painting is October Afternoon.

JoAnn- I really appreciate the timeliness of your questions. I don't want more boxes of disposable, anonymous junk to lug to the dump.

I still have things that were my grandmothers' and use them regularly. Unless we all start buying or making quality things, we'll be consumed by our landfills.
And a shout out for supporting artists and craft people! Yea!

I love the waters' reflection in this one. Amazing how you can make palms and grasses look as individual as DNA.
Every time.

OH, Bonnie. I hope you're not in danger of the hurricane today! Thanks, love your comments, but thank you especially for your faithfulness! JoAnn
