View from Bay Preserve

Floridian Spring

Painted at the Bay Preserve yesterday morning.  Misty, cool, perfect day... signs of Floridian Spring.  

When I first moved to Florida over twenty years ago, I asked an orchid grower when the best time was to purchase orchids.  He said, "Spring."  And I asked... when is "Spring" in Florida?  "Mid-February!" he replied.  Refreshing answer... not that we suffered too much this winter down here compared to folks up North.

Busy organizing my solo show at the Bay Preserve which will be mid-March-May!  Huge honor!
