Florida painter, Everglades, Marco Island, artist Jo-Ann Sanborn


Luncheon, October Aftertoon daily painting by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

October Afternoon
acrylic on canvas, 5"x7"

I'm a little behind.  The painting is an October afternoon, but I'm not getting around to posting it until November.  It's been a really busy couple of weeks getting ready to present a Luncheon for the Arts, in support of the Marco Island Center for the Arts. 

Over 200 people from all segments of the island community are expected.  We've been filling goody bags in my living room.  The wonderful image on the front of the bag by photographer Forrest Nichols makes it look like a flock of birds taking off. 

The programs for the event were finalized last night, and my job this morning was to print them while I wrote to you!  I had purchased extra ink knowing I would need it.  BIG Glitch!  I have a new printer, and the extra ink cartridge I had on hand was the wrong size.  Same number, too big.  Ugh.

Life is like that, and so is painting.  You get it all planned out and fate has other plans.  You can either roll with it or fight it.   Sometimes I choose to fight, but today, I'll roll.  It will get done, just later than I planned and the rest of the day will have to be adjusted to accommodate my error. 

Sadly, I'd whine if there was anyone hear to listen, but hubby is still sleeping peacefully. 

The luncheon will be tomorrow, at the Marco Island Hilton at noon.  It's a one-hour FREE lunch, but it is hoped that you'll do your part by opening your heart to "support."  If you haven't been invited and would like to come along. please let me know early today.  

Meanwhile I'll put all this aside and spend the day in the studio, painting.  That's really where I belong!

You are a workhorse, dearest.
Wish I could come but not until January.

It was fun and I enjoy do it. Yes, the two of us will have a painting session, and maybe some refreshments, too!
