Diane Mannion, #100 Mannion Paints Banyan Street, 8 x10" oil
My hundredth painting for 2012 (about 670 since starting my blog in 2008)! And I'm happy my 100th is of Banyan Street in Boca Grande, Florida, one of my favorite places to paint. We're not supposed to plant these gorgeous trees anymore because the roots travel for hundreds of feet and have been known to crack foundations and swimming pools. This street in Boca Grande is famous, usually a tourist stop for photos during season. These old trees have survived many hurricanes and are still standing.
