Twelve Palm Trees
by the Artist Colony at the Esplanade
The Artist Colony at the Esplanade is just about to start the third year in our present location. We're very grateful that in this dismal economy we have such terrific space to work in. We've been a bright spot for Marco Island, drawing people from afar to visit our studios and see what's new.
Today's painting is a first! Its a collaborative painting, done in part by each of the artists. Artist and photographer Lee Horton, conceived the idea. He asked each of the artist in the Colony to paint a three-inch interpretation of a palm tree. He then assembled the paintings into a shadowbox and took the above photo.
They are fabulous! Lee took the finished mini-paintings and framed them all in a shadowbox to create this beautiful and collectible artwork. Can you guess which artist painted which piece? Visit our website to give you a clue! (Hint, mine is at top right)
The painting is on display at Rightside Studio. If you like it, you can take a chance to win it in a drawing later. I've already bought my ticket!
