A oil on canvas 30×40 inches by June Pauline Zent

This is a painting of  a North Florida Spring that is difficult to access but is typical of the wild areas in the Northern part of the state. It was painted many years ago and is part of a series of waterscapes that I call Secret Places because most people don’t know their location. You don’t expect this kind of scene in Florida; It looks more like North Carolina with rolling hills, huge oak trees, and rigid terrain. After working on a portrait I love to through up a big canvas and paint one of these beautiful scenes. They offer a measure of artistic freedom compared to a portrait of anything and can be painted quickly. This one took about two weeks of work every day compared to a portrait taking a few months.

  1. Very pretty June, almost has a Lord of the Rings feel to it, like the Elven forest of Lothlórien (to turn into a geek on you! Haha!)
