This painting is from a photo I took on Anna Maria Island. My daughter and I spent a few days there in early March. It's such a lovely place - and really great for just lazing around. We did manage to spend a few days and a lot of dollars shopping in Sarasota and Bradenton, though! I love that we can do this every once in awhile - just the two of us, no kids, husbands or pets needing us! And, I don't think there is anything better than sharing a close relationship with a grown child! I wish it could have been a longer trip!
