Today's painting, Spring Morning shows another beautiful spring day. Since we haven't had rain for a while and none is forecast, the lush grasses will start to dry up and the landscape will wither until the summer rains come in June. Fire danger is already high, and we've seen the smoke from a few. It's all part of the natural cycle of the glades.

Congratulations to Art & Gaye Benochea of Fort Lauderdale who won my painting donated to the Museum of the Everglades after a show there last year. The painting was in the lobby of the Museum, and visitors and residents could take a chance as a fund raiser for the museum.

We've been members of this small but active museum for years. The Museum is located in Everglades City, and almost always has an fine art or photography show in their lobby. Staff welcomes visitors from near and far.

The Museum hosts a number of events, and for March the theme will be Women of the Everglades. Historical figure Deaconess Harriet Bedell has been the focus of some attention this year when local artist Hannah Ineson painting a mural depicting her in the Bedell Chapel at St. Mark's Episcopal Church. Deaconess Bedell will be canonized by the church later this year for her work among Florida's Seminole Indians. You can meet Deaconess Bedell at the Museum on March 14, when she will be portrayed by actress Marion Nicolay.
