The purpose of the trip to Florida other than the obvious relief from bitter cold winter was to paint a landscape for a charity function. The charity event is held at the golf course, the funds go to a group of oncologists who distribute help to needy cancer patients.
 My friend was the organizer of the event and her idea was to have me paint outdoors in the beauty of this particular place and get attention for the charity.
 I painted for four days in one spot, made a few small paintings and one large canvas.
I left the big painting there to be displayed and later auctioned or raffled. It was painted in oils and still quite wet, and I forgot to take any pictures of the finished art.

I have just this detail of the heron that I added as a focal point.
