Here in South Florida there is not much elevation above sea level. A few natural ridges (elevations) used to be like little islands in the middle of the Everglades for the early people that lived here. Nowadays some of these special areas are protected and one can find wild sour oranges, possibly descendants of former orange groves, growing among old live oaks. So here it is, the mood when the first early sun rays are hitting some of the upper branches.
I will be showing this and other paintings at the end of season exhibit at the community based Art Gallery 21, 600 Ne 21 Court, Wilton Manors, Florida. Meet the artists during the opening on April 24 from 7 to 9 pm. If you are in the area, stop by and join us for wine and cheese!
