Summer Storms, Standing Out daily painting by Everglades artist JoAnn Sanborn


Standing Out
5x7, acrylic on canvas
$150, framed

We learned of the first potential storm threat of the season from the weatherman last night. "Not to worry for at least a week" he said, in an effort to have some news but not to scare. Here we go again, watching the weather to determine if a predicted storm may be headed in our direction and pose a threat to Marco Island.

If you live in Southwest Florida, you should have made your home preparations and you family plan should be complete. If those around you know what to expect, where you will go, and how to keep in touch, and any storm event will be easier to manage.

If you're new to the area, or aren't quite sure what preparations you need, you can find out what Florida recommends here, or FEMA here.

And when the lights go out, it's time to eat the ice cream in your freezer before it melts!

Love the glow of the left side of this piece as it plays up the sun.
You have the ability to make every scene you paint be it's own representative of your geograhpical locale.

I'm right there with you, watching the TD's and the depressions, et al.
Cape Verde never had significance for me until I moved here.

Fingers crossed for all of us through November......

Hi, Bonnie. I so much appreciate your thoughtful comments.

Yes, we go about business as usual with one eye on the weather. Local lore says Marco Island is protected by the ancient Calusa Indians, but I still like being prepared!

Hard to get much painting done with the fingers crossed, tho!

How's Cloud fitting in with the family?
