Nikon, Rob Hazzard, Everglades painting by artist JoAnn Sanborn
Today's painting was a gift to my daughter and her husband nearly 17 years ago. It hangs in New England, in a lovely traditional living room, comfortable among antique wood furniture and the lovely creams and yellow colors they've chosen for the room.
This was my second Florida painting. I was still not at all familiar with the foliage here, and it's probably some Alligator Flag or some pickerel weed. If I remember, I got carried away by the light and reflections. I'm still enchanted by the light and reflections in the Everglades.
The reason we're going so far back in time today is that my favorite little Nikon Coolpix camera, used to photo my daily paintings was dropped and broken. Oops. That's why the last couple of photo of the dailes were a bit "off."
Diligent searching indicated that my camera can be replaced at a reasonable cost, but it will take a while to get here and I just don't like my husbands big fancy camera. It doesn't quite understand what I want.
My painting now has come companions. A corner of that New England living room has become an artist's studio. My daughter's husband, Rob Hazzard, has become a fine artist, and has a number of paintings you might enjoy seeing. Take a look!
