Last week I went to Florida for a few days to get away from snowy Maine, to have a break from regular life and to see my parents. My husband stayed home with the kids and plowed snow while I walked in beautiful 80 something degree weather. How's that for a deal? He's a good guy.

While I was there we went to an art fair in Stuart.  Sorry for the quality of the image, I used my phone camera.  But it captures the energy.   It is so interesting to see a gathering of creative people. First of all, I was astounded at the amount of work that these people do in selling their art.   

The artists I enjoyed the most were those who really had unique perspectives. Their work stood out to me. I didn't buy anything, just went to be inspired.  And it was inspiring!   It made me think about how the work of an artist isn't just to make a painting but to express their ideas.  It made me want to go home and paint my unique viewpoints.  

Walking to the art fair there was this huge banyan tree.   None of the pictures I took of it with my phone capture the majesty of that tree.   And no picture can capture the feeling of standing under it.  That a four foot tree can eventually grow to take up an acre of land is a sight to behold.  Banyan trees drop roots to the ground and spread horizontally.  

Creation is amazing.
