On Reflection, 2013, Jo-Ann Sanborn
acrylic on canvas, 16x20
I've just signed a new lease, giving me another year in the Esplanade location. It was just a year ago that I decided to strike out on my own once I was certain that the Artist Colony would no longer be able to have space for group galleries in the Esplanade.
It was the right decision for me, and I'm happy to have another year in this location. My space is just the right size for one artist, and I love working there and meeting all the visitors and Marcoites who stop in to see what I'm working on.
Having a studio/gallery in the Esplanade still gives me plenty of time to visit the Everglades. There is always something to delight me on my trips out in the field. One day last week coming home I saw my first Bobcat! He was larger than I expected and into the brush far too quick to take a photo, but it made me smile just it see it.
