The Florida State Park Plein Air Painting Tour – Painting each of Florida's State Parks on location
When we arrived early in the morning at the Constitution Convention Museum State Park near Appalachicola, it hadn’t opened yet. Even though we couldn’t tour the museum we were able to walk the grounds.
Just beyond the museum building is a large monument dedicated in 1956 to the creation of Florida’s constitution. And a across the street is a locomotive from Florida’s first lumber train, and train wheels that were salvaged from the bay.
From the museum building there is a row of old sable palms (Florida’s state tree) lining a beautiful grassy view toward St. Joseph’s bay. I thought about painting this view, but the smell of lemony sweet magnolia blossoms pulled me in their direction!
