Bright Shiny Day, painting by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn
Bright Shiny Day, 2012, Jo-Ann Sanborn
Acrylic on canvas, 20"x24"
OK, so I'm a morning person. Actually I'm a fan of siesta, since I hate to miss late night fun too, but in the morning I rise and start the day with natural optimism.
Mornings just lend themselves to be hopeful, uplifting and joyous. The start of a new day can mean new beginnings, new hope, new paths to follow. This Everglades painting is meant to convey some of these feelings.
Shark Valley with kids and grandkids today is my plan. They'll get to see more of the Everglades. I'll revisit a treasured place. We'll learn or see something new.
By the end of the day we'll be hot, sticky and tired, but for now we're rarein' to go.
