One of the greatest reasons. I moved to Florida was getting to see more color.  As odd as it might seem, where I lived in the Black Hills of South Dakota, the primary colors where pretty much eliminated with a blanket of white that lasted for 9 months.  I so enjoy, a full twelve months of beautiful greens, floral reds, yellows, beautiful sunsets and awesome blue skies!  I was getting way to use to old rusty mud, dirty old gray barns, dead gray trees and just a lack of color.  My world is changing and I hope to see more of it showing up on my canvas!
