Thinking about it, I suppose the state of Florida is best known for sunshine, beaches, beautiful women, great college football and of course Disney World and it's companion theme parks. Nice attractions, but speaking as a professional landscape artist, I find my lifelong home state a bit lacking in subjects for my paintings. I guess that's why I choose to travel in search of inspiration. However, there are exceptions. This painting is from the grounds of a 2500-acre plantation/farm owned by a close friend located in Madison County in North Florida.
