Today's daily Everglades painting, All if a Kind shows palms against a prairie background with sun in a hazy sky. Sometimes the palms stand out strongly against the background and other times blend in so it's hard to differentiate what's palm and what's brush!
Everyone these days is concerned about too much email spam. I've changed to sending out my email news in a way that gives you, the viewer, total control over whether or not you'd like to receive it. Although I'm still learning, my Constant Contact email seems to offer me lots of options for offering you a quality newsletter, and is easy for you to accept or refuse. I would prefer to have everyone who receives it look forward to it each month.
The newsletter itself is still in the formative stages. There will always be a section that allows you to learn more about our fragile Everglades landscape. It's a fascinating place, and different from any other place on the earth.
The Collector Corner is new, and there I hope to give you information about collecting original art. If you already own one of my paintings, you are a Sanborn collector, an original art collector, and one of a group of very special people.
Feel free to comment on what you liked and read, or what you skipped and didn't interest you. The newsletter will evolve as we both participate! If you didn't get the newsletter and would like to, you can sign up here.
By the way, if you're thinking of using Constant Contact for your email list, let me know and we can both get a bonus discount! I did this with artist Betty Newman--thanks, Betty!
We enjoyed the opening of local artist Phyllis Pransky's artwork at the Marco Island Center for the Arts last night. Phyllis arrived on Marco just about the same time as I did, and we've been sharing a love of island and art every since. Phyllis is the driving force behind the successful Marco Outdoor Artists. Her work is colorful, lively, and done with a passion for the light. There was a nice turnout for this time of year, and it was great to meet and greet other artists and island residents.
