This is a pretty pond they have, its surrounded by giant ferns and these plants with small bright red flowers whose name escapes me. The butterflies love them and I saw a lot of giant swallowtails and zebra butterflies.
Art Mundo provided nice cold soft drinks and water and the owners of Immokolee gave us some donuts, I couldn't ask for anything more.
The painting is 5 x 7, oil on masonite.

I took a walk in White City park with my husband on this new trail. The trail isn't new but it was new to me. There isn't a whole lot to see till you get to the end where there is a bench that over looks this lovely view. This is just part of the view, there is something nice to see all around. Its 8 x 10, oil on masonite,

This is 8 x 10, oil on masonite. I like it a whole lot better in real life, I am not seeing the colors that are in the painting on my monitor. The grasses and mother-in-law pods are more golden- white instead of the brown-white they are here. Its got lots of nice textures too.
