Florida painter, Everglades, Marco Island, artist Jo-Ann Sanborn


Multidirectional panel, painting by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

Here's my entry for Marco Island Center for the Arts Fortieth Birthday Bash to be held in early November. Forty Art League Artists will complete a 12x12 panel which will become part of a larger painting. The finished painting will be eight panels wide and five panels high.

If you're doing a panel, please be careful with tape. My panel had "issues" because the blue painters tape that I used somehow decided to fuse itself to my panel after just a couple of minutes leaving dirty glue residue. When I tried to wash it off, off came the finish of the panel. Panic and some cursing ensued, but I finally got it mostly under control.

I wanted the panel to be multi-directional as design from any angle, as you should, if you're doing one. That way the work becomes interactive, as the viewer can move any of the panels any way they like in the whole crazy quilt of the painting. The panels will have velcro tape put on the back, and can be redesigned again and again at the will of the viewer.
If you are an Art League artist and you haven't picked up your panel, call the Art League soon to reserve yours. They're going fast. This is a great opportunity to participate in something both fun and lasting.

Well! you did it and the composition is outa-sight, my love! Some how, I think, you COULD re-invent the wheel! Very clever and quite beautiful. - TARA

So sorry I missed your comment earlier. Thanks for your kind words about this painting. I can't wait to see yours, and to see that the whole thing really DOES work together!
