Welcome to our project blog. We will be posting regularly about the six Florida prairies we will be painting through June 2012. Each artist will have stories and images to share as we explore these essential and fragile ecosystems. Stay tuned for scheduled events.
I've always been a winter painter. Fall and winter in Florida are my favorite seasons. Paynes Prairie is full of color in the winter. Smoky blues, rusts and mauves join the wheat colored grasses and evergreens, creating a rich tapestry of atmospheres and color in the landscape. The texture of the prairie is enhanced by these varieties of color. The prairie is ever changing between wet and dry years. Every time I go, I see a new scene.
