Nature’s Eden

“Blue Heron” Original Watercolor by Mindy Lighthipe ©2012
On exhibit at Cedar Key, Fl

I am pleased to write about a new organization I joined here in Florida. It is called Florida’s Eden. They are a group of artists, nature lovers and business people who all care about the delicate and amazing environment here in Florida. They are the voice for positive, solution-oriented approaches to Florida’s economy, environment and education. They have an amazing website and I highly recommend that you take a stroll through and see the amazing things they have listed on their website. Not from Florida? Their ideas can easily be adopted and translated to any area that you are from in the world. See how you might help preserve your local  environment, educate others, while boosting the local economy too. Local=WIN, WIN, WIN!

My painting of the “Blue Heron” (#40 of my 52/52 Painting Challenge) will be included in a Florida Eden’s Art Exhibit coming up in December. Here are the details.

If you are in the area I hope to see you at the artist’s reception!
