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


Oh, the places we've been and the things that we've seen! My husband and I are just back from a fantastic Mediterranean cruise, traveling with a group of compatible friends. We started with two days in Barcelona, a city filled with outdoor sculpture, exciting architecture and the famous and incredible Gaudi's Unfinished Cathedral. What a sight! Some of the bell towers have just been topped with fruit and look like an ice cream delight. Barcelona is a city we will put on the list for a longer visit in the future. From there the beautiful cruise ship 0Millennium became our home for the next two weeks. From the ship we visited several of Europe's most exciting places, ending with two days in Venice. I'll share some tidbits from our trip, and will be pointing again by tomorrow. As much fun as it was, there's no place like home, and I'm happy to exchange my walking shoes for some comfortable sandals and get back to the painting that I love.


This regal group pf palms reminds me of friends going out together for lunch or dinner, all chatting happily as the the group forms and reforms along the way. I've exaggerated the height of the palms a little to enhance their character. The early morning clouds in the sky are dissipating in the warming morning sun. I'm going to let it sit for a while and may do some color adjusting later.
This will be my last post for a while since we'll be traveling again and leaving our home to relatives displaced by a damaging leak. We're fortunate to have a great group of travel friends, ensuring us the very best of times. I'll have some photos to show when we get back! Have a wonderful month!
