I’m channeling the Florida days of my childhood, and remembering all the beautiful warmth of this place…central Florida, brilliant sun that fades and sun-bleaches all the brilliant turquoise, peach and lime green colors to a soft fade. Warm to my bones, hot enough to swim in cool water. So I bring these to my winters up here. It’s my beautiful survival method until I can return and soak up the warmth again. It’s where I spent all my growing up years, and on into college and young adult life.
True story - I wanted to be one of the mermaids at Weeki Wachee when I was a young girl. I was so fascinated by how they breathed from an air hose underwater in that deep cavernous spring, where we watched from an underwater amphitheater. The underwater ballet they performed had me mesmerized. They would end by blowing a kiss to the audience and wave….and those tiny air bubbles rose to the surface. Funny the little bits I remember from so very long ago.
This is one from my Florida inspired series of paintings. I can’t wait for you to enjoy this in your home!
