800th Post! Palm by a Beach, daily painting by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

Palm by a Beach, 2013, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 5"x7"
 
 
I can't believe that this is my 800th post!  This blog had become a true artist's journal as I look back over the years.  I haven't always been the most faithful, but make every effort to post three times a week.  My daily paintings have become quite popular in the studio/gallery, and I love doing them! 
 
In April I will do some traveling. and have decided to take several simple projects with me. Here's one below.  I've cut some archers water color paper into bookmarks,
 
 
 
 added a ribbon and put contact information on the back,
 
 
and will paint on the front using a travel pan of water colors. I'm not very accomplished with water color, so it will be a chance to explore the medium.  The whole thing fits in a baggie, and it will be nice to hand a bookmark to someone I meet along the way. 
 
 
Bookmarks will soon become a relic of the past as more and more people read books on their mobile devices!
