During the 15th annual Everglades Festival my plein air artist's group painted the scenery and the works are on display in the auditorium at the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge.
Some amazingly talented Florida painters in this group, so come on by and take a look at the work created that day! Work is for sale and a portion goes to protecting this natural habitat!
I could barely finish one, but some artists were more productive  :) Lots of really nice artwork.
This guy actually stood and posed for 3 of us for what seemed like the whole morning till noon!
He was actually a bit raggedy I am assuming from being snapped at by gators since the whole time I was there, I watched as 2 gators slowly inched their way toward him till he finally took off.
no doubt to be reenacted the following morning(s)........
The Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge is a 147,392-acre (596.47 km2) wildlife sanctuary that includes the most northern remnant of the historic Everglades wetland ecosystem.
