Not my typical Florida oil landscape painting! But these are the shoes of a Florida native! In fact, they cost her over $1,000. So I thought I would paint a portrait of her shoes for posterity! They are her handmade dream stilettos, embedded with little Swarovski crystals. She danced the night away (but couldn't walk the next day!). Women and their shoes. What can we say?!
This is a 9 x 12" acrylic painting. The original sold to the owner of the shoes! Giclees available on request. For other paintings of Florida landscapes, see www.judybatterson.com.

Poinciana and Oranges, a Florida Oil Landscape of Orange Grove, Poinciana Tree, Old Florida by Judy Batterson
A large poinciana tree is in bloom with brilliant red blossoms. Across the path is an orange grove laden with fruit. The interplay of light and shadow is shown by the sunlight on the bright colors of red, orange and green while billowing clouds stand out against a dark sky. Florida heat leads to afternoon thunderstorms, and the painting tells this story. Large and colorful, this is a painting of Florida the way it used to be and can still be found down sandy back roads. Original Oil on masonite. 21 x 36 " $2400

“Garden of Eden” from Genesis. Eden, the garden of God, is full of symbolism. The description is in Genesis 2. Abundant fruit-bearing and beautiful trees grew there while a stream watered the Garden. Archeologists believe that the date palm was one of the first trees in the Garden. It was a place of peace and serenity. This is my glimpse into the Garden of Eden. The painting will be used for the cover of a book of poetic and healing prayers. May this picture bring peace to those who view it, especially as they read the prayers soon to be published. The book will be available in 2011 at the Glennon House in Winter Park, FL. 18" x 24" original oil, $1500 and beautifully framed.
