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!

Congratulations on entering the exhibit. Your heron is beautiful!!! I wish you well – if I lived closer I’d come see it.

Hi Heather,
Thanks for the congratulatory message! I am excited about the show. I am new to Florida and am amazed at the support and interest for artists, especially those that care about the environment. It already feels like home! I went to your website and I really love your colors and the “joy” the resonates from your paintings. Keep painting!
Best wishes,

Congratulations, lovely painting! I just checked out their website and will join. I love Cedar Key-would love to spend the winter there. We are heading to St. Augustine this December so I hope to find lots to paint and sketch.

Thanks Janice! When do you fly south for the winter? I am about an hour or so from St Augustine. I hear that is a great place for over wintering birds. Glad to hear that you will join Florida’s Eden. They are a great organization to be a part of. I hope our paths cross!
