Artist Colony, Baby makes Three daily painting by Everglades Artist JoAnn Sanborn


And Baby makes Three
5x7, acrylic on canvas
$150

The Artist Colony at the Esplanade is now going strong. There are now three studios galleries and a total of 17 artists, with at least one working artist in each of the three locations each day. I'm usually there Wednesdays and Thursdays, and sometimes on Friday, although I'm happy to meet you there at another time if possible.

My work at the Esplanade varies, and I spend time designing, priming canvases, framing, studying, making a color chart, or best of all painting. I'm working more from photos, partly because of the hours I need to spend there, and partly because the weather has been so challenging!

There are completed painting up on the walls for you to enjoy. You are invited to get some coffee at Starbucks, come in, sit a while, learn a little more about art, and to share my passion for the Everglades. I’m very happy to talk while I work, and if I can’t for some reason, I’ll let you know why. You’re not disturbing me!

In addition to showcasing my own paintings, I actively support the Marco Island Center for the Arts and the Marco Island Foundation for the Arts, and other cultural events within our community. I'm delighted that the artists can provide an art presence for our citizens and visitors alike to enjoy.

Hi JoAnn ~ I love your work ~ doing that on a 5x7 I don't think is easy ~ seems larger size is easy ~ Is that true for you? Or have you been painting so long that size doesn't matter ~ Paint on! Hugs & namaste, Carol (artmusedog)

I like changing sizes and sometimes the little ones take almost as long as a larger one. When my work got more expensive I started doing them so beginning collectors could have an orginal piece. Very much enjoyed your new figures, too!
