Sigh of a Breeze painting by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

Sigh of a Breeze, 2011, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on canvas, 20"x24"

Sigh of a Breeze is not quite as yellow as it shows here.  With the heavy amount of glazing I've been doing the paintings are just a little color heavy in the photos.  Working on this.  Sigh

Here's an update on my recent post about working with the Marco Island Academy.  All projects and plans with the Artist Colony are off because of changes at the Academy that prompted the release of art instructor Bill Kobe.  Sigh

Since the arts are known to promote the learning of math and science, this is a huge loss to students who were already involved in a number of art focused projects. Projects that involved students thinking about broader perspectives and providing them with knowledge that would enrich their lives no matter what their final occupation. 

Bill was a terrific addition to the Marco Island arts community.  In just a few short months he had initiated incentives at the Art Center, the Artist Colony, Bonita Art Center, and with a number of arts individuals in the community.

It's a small island, and every artistic voice helps us grow culturally.  We'll miss him.  Sigh
