Open Prairie, 2013, Jo-Ann Sanborn
oil on board, 5x7
The soil of the open prairies of the Everglades contain very few nutrients, and the grasses are either up to their knees in water in the wet season supporting an abundance of thriving life, or parched and thirsty, struggling to survive during dry season.
Extremes. That seems to be the way the Everglades landscape was designed.
If you'd like to learn more about the Everglades landscape, you might enjoy my book, Embracing the Everglades, with photos of my paintings, and words about the workings some of the the Everglades systems.
