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.
This morning I enjoyed working on this little painting from a reference photo. Each Saturday I paint out in front of my gallery. Today was a special treat because musician Linda Pottberg joined me to entertain visitors to Paddiwhack Gallery in Gainesville, Florida. While I painted the prairie wetlands, she sang folk songs about old Florida and times past. It was a delight and I hope she will join me often. We are lucky to live in north Florida where culture, music and art are readily available.
