Twitter, Outdoor Artist, New Day Daily Painting by Everglades Artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

Brr-r-r. It's cold outside this morning despite my two layers of clothing. That's the news over much of the country and the most talked about subject on Twitter this morning. I intend to spend the morning in the warm studio rather than venturing out, and may even turn on the heat to warm things up just a little. Wednesday is the Marco Island Outdoor Artists paint the island together day, and you may see some brave souls painting outside in Old Marco today, at either Mereck's Restaurant, the shops, or the old Marco Inn. You may want to wait wait until the day warms up just a little before looking for them, thought! Hope you're able to stay warm and cozy wherever you are today!

Today's daily painting is of a place in the Everglades where the composition is simple and pleasing. I've watched the small mangrove grow from just a few leaves to a nice full bush. There's usually an alligator sunning on the far bank.

JoAnn- what serenity in that reflection. A simple scene handled with such elegance.
Now from one sub tropical gal to another, I'm curious to know what you consider cold.....

Well, it's forty-two as I'm writing this, but it did reach low 70's by afternoon. You can tell the locals by their sweatshirts and the visitors by their tank tops!

How cold is 'cold' to you? It was 21 degrees here right after the sun came up - after almost 60 degrees last week! This piece has a serenity to it that's so appealing. Maybe it was the cold weather, but I like it.

So much for the plein air for a while for you! Or, do you go out when it's that cold? I bet your island view is lovely all winter, too!
