The Hobe Sound Project

The Hobe Sound Project took on new meaning today when I went out to paint the orange groves just past I95. It was a beautiful day and I found this great location to set up and paint. When I was close to finished with my painting, Mike the grove manager and friend arrived. They told me that the groves have taken a real beating in the past few years from hurricanes and disease. Becker Groves sold the land to developers and although they are still operating, some day these groves will be gone. They also told me that the trees that I had painted were the Honeybells - and they will get more colorful later on. So I'll definitely have to go back as much as possible!

Just as I was leaving the road crew arrived to clean up!
