Giving Back, Two large Paintings by Everglades Artist JoAnn Sanborn

High Tide
30x40, acrylic on canvas

It's been a really busy couple of weeks, so I'm a little behind on everything! Exchanged out two large paintings that were at the Morgan Stanley office here on the island, and exchange the painting at the Drs. Polling office on Saturday.

That will bring some fresh new large paintings into the Studio, so if you're looking for a large painting there's some new selections for you to consider. Just received some new daily painting panels, primed them yesterday, so you'll be seeing a new one soon!

The Artist Colony at the Esplanade is fortunate to be in a great location, visited by people from all over the world. We are all so appreciative and grateful for our studios and gallery space. In order to show appreciation, April will be “Give Back” month for a number of Colony artists. Artists will donate a portion of their sales to the local charity of their choice in an effort to benefit the entire community. It's the right thing to do!

I'm going to donate a percent of my April sales to the Friends of the Fakahatchee State Preserve. The Fakahatchee Strand is home to more varieties of wild orchid than any other place, I love the fabulous light and bold forms, and love the time I spent painting in the Fakahatchee. The Friends do good works that help do to preserve and protect this wonderful landscape through introduction and education, so it's a good fit for me.

You can help, too, by picking up a nice painting this month. It will bring you much pleasure and help save a small portion of the Everglades at the same time. Thanks to those who have already purchased!

Love your high tide painting. It must pull you right in in real life, being so large. The giant lazy S in the white foam brings a wonderful dance to the composition. Well done!

Thanks, Susan. It's a beautiful spot to paint. It's wonderful when the brush can dance, isn't it!
