Jo-Ann Sanborn's Sunshine Studios
As an artist, I want to introduce the viewer to a place of ancient and timeless beauty. In the Everglades, the soul can find gladness is listening to clear water gurgling softly as it travels steadily towards the gulf, and peace watching the soft pastels of the morning sky change slowly as the sun rises.
I'm awed by the simple dignity of a sable palm in dancing light. The bold forms and deep shadows provide constant interest and exploration. As soon as I master one view, the majesty of a cypress grove, a wind-riffled meadow in warm sunshine, or swirling clouds in a multitude of blues provide another source of inspiration and challenge.
My images are ancient and familiar, palms, prairie, water and clouds. Through them, it is my fondest dream that one of my paintings will bring beauty and value into your life and home, and that you will hear the voice of the Everglades through my work.
