Fakahatchee Safari, Almost Spring painting by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

Almost Springtime, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on canvas, 16"x20"

While the frozen northlands are suffering with a wild and snowy winter, you can take a walk on the wild side of sunny Southwest Florida!  The Friends of the Fakahatchee are holding a Fakahatchee Safari fundraiser to support Fakahatchee Strand State Preserve on Saturday, February 26th.  

During the Safari you can explore the natural environment with guided swamp walks, birding walks, photo workshops, scenic tram ridges and swamp buggy rides.  Learn about the ecology of the area with live exotic animal demonstrations, interactive presentations, and view local art work and photography.  I'll be particpating with some of my Everglades paintings. 

You'll also enjoy the camp ambiance of the area with a BBQ cookout, a wine reception, bonfire, live music, story-telling and a market place.  It should be a really fun time and a very special event.  Last year it was a sell out, so make your reservations today!  See you at the Safari!

Your painting is wonderful and it sounds like you live in a wonderful place ~ more snow (not much but enough to be a pain) in MA ~ hugs and namaste, cz:)

It's lovely and provides constant inspiration. No winter dry skin, either! Spring should be on the way soon, with nice soft colors in the woods. Now that I can miss!
