Florida painter, Everglades, Marco Island, artist Jo-Ann Sanborn


Construction Madness and Water Babies, a daily painting by Everglades Artist Jo-Ann Sanborn

Water Babies, 2015, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on board, 5" x7"

My studio/gallery on the Esplanade is open six days a week, Monday through Friday from 10-5, a little later on Thursdays, and till 2 on Saturdays. THis schedule will be in place until Easter.

The Smokehouse Bay bridge ajacent to the Esplanade is being reconstructed. The surrounding environment is bombarded with loud and persistant construction sounds, accompanied by the wailing sirens of emergency vehicles trying to get through almost umbearable traffic outside.

Parking has become difficult at the Esplanade, too, fueled by record numbers of visitors from colder climates.  And now, Daylight Savings, which always throws me for a loop until I adjust to the darker mornings.  

Right now, peaceful Marco isn't peaceful!  What a difference from the quiet pleaures of the Everglades.  Watching a heron slowly and patiently searching for breakfast, or a palm tree full of life and rippling in a light breeze helps to bring me back from the brink of over-stimulated madness. I'm so glad when I can spend time out there!

I've completed some new work, and placed some new large paintings on the website. If you're interested, take a look.

I feel for you with all that madness, plus your own home construction project going on.
I need to come down for lunch, soon.

Let's go to the Everglades and paint.
