Dr Joerger Cottage

Diane Mannion, Dr Joerger Cottage, 9x12" oil on linen

Bay Preserve

Painted at the Bay Preserve in Osprey, which is between Venice and Sarasota.  This is the
Dr. Albert G. Joerger, Center for Environmental Policy cottage.  Had painting half finished on location then spent the same amount of time in the studio trying to pull it together.  
Location shot:

Felt like Spring here in Florida today.  Cool, misty, slightly overcast.  Birds singing, trees budding. But no sign of snowbirds driving North yet.

Will have fabulous news to report about a solo exhibition of my paintings soon!
