Palms and Sawgrass, 2012, Jo-Ann Sanborn
Acrylic on Board, 5"x7"
Anyone following this blog knows that most of my paintings center on the Everglades landscape. The landscape continues to inspire me, even though it has become quite familiar through the years.
Like any good muse, or a good husband, it's a landscape that continues to delight. Never boring or lacking in excitement, it becomes more endearing with the passing of time.
Sometimes I struggle to get it right, and other times the joy of it all comes through more easily. But there is a depth and and a strength and a constancy, combined with a dose of the unexpected to this landscape that makes me return again and again.
It is my fondest hope that you will see the landscape through new eyes as you travel across south Florida, and that my paintings in your home will bring you joy.
